    Ivanka Trump, the daughter and adviser of the american president Donald Trump, has denounced Sunday “racism, white supremacy, and neo-nazis”, while his father was criticized for its reaction to the violence which has cast a shadow on a rally of the extreme right on the eve in Charlottesville.

    “There is no place in society for racism, white supremacy, and neo-nazis. We all need to unite as Americans, and be a united country,” wrote Ivanka Trump in a series of tweets Sunday morning.

    This position distinguishes it from Donald Trump, who has referred to protesters as far-right and counter-demonstrators, anti-racism back-to-back on Saturday, denouncing the “violence from various parties”.

    The president is strongly criticized for these comments, including among Republicans. The senator from Florida, Marco Rubio, has been asked to “hear the president describe the events of Charlottesville for what they are, a terrorist attack carried out by white-supremacist”.

    A 32-year old woman was killed on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, when a car rushed at the crowd of counter-demonstrators who oppose a far-right rally.

    A 20 year old man, a native of Ohio, has been arrested.
