White House adviser and President Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump condemned the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in a series of tweets on Sunday.

"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-Nazis," Ivanka Trump said. "We must all come together as Americans -- and be one country UNITED."

The first daughter's statement follows a barrage of criticism aimed at her father for his statement on the white nationalist rally in which he avoided placing blame on one particular group and said "many sides" were to blame.

Cohn, Steven Mnuchin and Jared Kushner have not commented publicly, though Mr. Cohn was described by those close to him as disgusted with the remarks.WASHINGTON — Jewish members of President Trump’s administration remained largely silent Wednesday after Mr. Trump came to the defense of nationalist and right-wing protesters in Charlottesville, Va., who had chanted anti-Semitic slogans and demeaned the president’s Jewish son-in-law.

With all these factors at hand, people are wondering if Ivanka Trump will comment on the white nationalist rally. Would love to see "most powerful Jewish woman in America " @ IvankaTrump make A SINGLE FUCKING COMMENT OF ANY KIND about this. No Place Like Home.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides," Trump said at a press conference form his New Jersey golf course.

"It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time," he continued.

Trump received blowback from both sides after his statement, including from multiple top Republicans. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) joined other members of the GOP in calling out Trump on Twitter.

"Very important for the nation to hear [President Trump] describe events in Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by white supremacists," Rubio said on Twitter.

White nationalist, white supremacist and alt-right groups were initially scheduled to gather in Charlottesville's Emancipation Park Saturday to protest the city's decision to remove a Confederate statue there.

Violent crashes broke out between the white nationalist marchers and anti-fascism protestors, which led to police declaring the gathering an unlawful assembly and breaking the event up before it officially began.

Soon after, one person was killed and 19 were injured after a man plowed his car into a group of anti-fascism protestors.

“Nothing changes”: Republicans in Congress will stick with Trump, even after Charlottesville .
After two days of failing to denounce white supremacy following a violent rally in Charlottesville on Saturday, President Trump answered outraged calls from his own party: He condemned racist hate groups by name. Those comments, read from prepared text on Monday in the White House, will almost certainly be sufficient to avoid any real damage to Trump’s legislative proposals. And as far as insiders on Capitol Hill can see, Trump’s amended comments seem to be enough for Republican lawmakers to move forward as if this were any other White House dust-up — and to continue pushing for policy goals they share with the president. “It seems like what Congress is focused on is what Congress has always been focused on,” a conservative House aide said, speaking on condition of anonymity: moving the legislative agenda on health care and tax reform that GOP members have campaigned on for years. On Saturday, a Nazi sympathizer at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia — whose mother identified as a Trump supporter — rammed his car into a crowd of anti-racism counterprotesters, killing one and injuring more than a dozen. In the immediate aftermath, Trump refused to condemn white supremacy specifically, prompting angry calls from Republican lawmakers. “Mr. President — we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism,” Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) tweeted. Sen.
