Ivanka Trump on Eve of Unite the Right 2 Rally: There’s ‘No Place for White Supremacy’ in America

On Saturday, First Daughter Ivanka Trump condemned neo-Nazism in a three-part tweet.

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

She added: “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.”

Then in a third tweet, she concluded:”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!”

The First Daughter’s tweet comes just one day ahead of a planned Unite the Right 2 rally in Washington DC that was timed to mark the one-year anniversary of Charlottesville.

Law enforcement agencies in Washington DC are bracing for alt-right protesters to gather at Lafayette Square on Sunday. Extra precautions, including a firearms ban, have been taken to help prevent violence during this year’s gathering. The sequel to the deadly Charlotteville event is expected to draw hundreds from across the country.

In addition to Ms. Trump’s condemnation, President Donald Trump also tweeted out on the anniversary of Charlottesville, writing: “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!”

Vice President Mike Pence also issued a statement denouncing bigotry, racism and hatred.
