The tweets come on the anniversary of deadly unrest triggered by a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

President Trump’s daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump on Saturday condemned white supremacy ahead of the anniversary of last year’s violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

“One year ago in Charlottesville, we witnessed an ugly display of hatred, racism, bigotry & violence,” Ivanka Trump tweeted.

“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 said.

“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.

We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!”.
