Ivanka Trump Condemns ‘Hatred, Racism, Bigotry & Violence’ At Last Year’s Charlottesville Riots

Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Trump and a senior White House adviser, tweeted Saturday to condemn the “hatred, racism, bigotry & violence” that took place at least year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“One year ago in Charlottesville, we witnessed an ugly display of hatred, racism, bigotry & violence,” Ivanka Trump tweeted in the first of a three-part series.

“While Americans are blessed to live in a nation that protects liberty, freedom of speech and diversity of opinion, there is no place for white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism in our great country,” she continued.

“Rather than tearing each other down with hatred, racism & violence, we can lift one another up, strengthen our communities and strive to help every American achieve his or her full potential!” she concluded.

President Trump also made a Saturday statement on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville protests, tweeting, “The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!” (RELATED: ‘BlacKkKlansman’ Screenwriter: ‘We’re Making The Comparison That Donald Trump Is No Different Than A Member Of The KKK’)
