The mother of a woman fatally run over by a car at a far‑right rally in Virginia says she has "no interest" in speaking with US President Donald Trump.

Susan Bro said she refuses to speak to Trump after hearing him equate counter‑demonstrators, like her daughter, with white supremacists.

Her daughter, Heather Heyer, was killed after a car ploughed through a crowd in Charlottesville.

She said she did not "want to be used for political agendas".

Bro told ABC New's she missed a call from the White House, which appeared to have been made during her daughter's public memorial.

She added that she received three more "frantic messages" from Trump's press team later in the day but was too exhausted from the funeral to talk.

It was when she saw a news clip of Trump again blaming both sides for the violence that she changed her mind about speaking to the president.
