First Daughter Ivanka Trump has said the things her father refused to about the deadly clashes in Charlottesville, Va.
“There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis,” Trump wrote in a two-part tweet Sunday morning.
“We must all come together as Americans — and be one country UNITED. #Charlottesville”
Trump’s condemnation of white nationalists comes a day after her father refused to shame the hate groups — opting to put the blame “on many sides.”
President Trump’s remarks were panned by members of both political parties, who said the white nationalists, neo-Nazis and neo-Confederates were at fault for the violence.
A counter-protester was killed when a grey Dodge Challenger plowed into a crowd, and two Virginia State Police officers were killed when their helicopter crashed later in the day.
The first daughter, also a senior White House aide, converted to Judaism when she married Jared Kushner. The couple is raising their three children Jewish and observe the Sabbath.
Demonstrators in Charlottesville shouted anti-Semitic remarks at rallies Friday night and early Saturday, sparking clashes in the streets with opponents.
