Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter and a White House adviser, has explicitly condemned "white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism" in a manner her father seems reluctant to do. The tweets posted last night come on the anniversary of deadly unrest triggered by a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"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!"

The tweets were notable because her father had drawn scorn after the Charlottesville bloodshed for avoiding any condemnation of the torch-bearing white supremacists. Trump was roundly condemned for saying there were "very fine people, on both sides" among the racists and the counter-protesters.
