Trump has faced harsh criticism for his reaction to violence at a Charlottesville, Va., white supremacist rally earlier this month. Trump blamed "both sides" for the violence, specifically faulting the "alt-left" counterprotesters who opposed the white supremacists. One counterprotester was killed in the clashes.

Another German magazine, Der Spiegel, featured Trump wearing a KKK hood last week. The New Yorker and The Economist have both depicted Trump alongside a similar hood.

“What about the alt-left that came charging at the — as you say, the alt-right?” Trump said days after Charlottesville, defending his remarks blaming both sides. "Alt-right" is a term that typically refers to a political ideology that mixes populism with white supremacy and anti-Semitism.

“Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. As far as I am concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day.”
