Ivanka Trump on Saturday spoke out against white nationalist rallies.
First daughter Ivanka Trump took to Twitter Saturday night and spoke out against white nationalist rallies.
"One year ago in Charlottesville, we witnessed an ugly display of hatred, racism, bigotry & violence," she wrote.
"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," Ivanka Trump continued.
And in another tweet, she stated: "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!"
Her tweets came hours after President Trump's tweet on the matter.
"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!" the president wrote.
Last year, President Trump faced backlash for his comments blaming "both sides" for the Charlottesville violence, which claimed the life of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, after a man drove into a crowd of counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally.
