Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, condemned a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis,” Ivanka Trump tweeted from her personal Twitter page on Sunday morning.

“We must all come together as Americans — and be one country UNITED,” she also tweeted, echoing her father, who had tweeted Saturday: “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

Donald Trump has come under fire for not specifically condemning the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who gathered in Charlottesville for what was billed as the largest white nationalist rally in the country in at least the last decade, rather saying the hatred and violence came from “many sides.”

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides — on many sides,” Trump said in a news conference on Saturday afternoon.

Ivanka Trump serves as a West Wing adviser to her father. She converted to Judaism in 2008, before her marriage to Jared Kusher, who serves as a top aide to Donald Trump.

Although the focus of the white supremacists rally on Saturday ostensibly was on preserving symbols of the confederacy, there were overt expressions of antisemitism and  Nazi sympathy, including swastika flags, and signs that said “The Jewish media is going down.” Chanting by the white supremacist rally-goers at times targeted Jews, naming the town’s Jewish mayor, Mike Signer.
