Charlottesville violence: Ivanka calls out 'white supremacy and neo-nazis' after Donald Trump refuses to

Washington: United States president Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka weighed in on Sunday on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia with an appeal for unity, saying there was "no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis".

A woman was killed and 19 injured in the university town on Saturday when a car plowed into a crowd after a white nationalist protest rally turned violent.

Donald Trump, who has a following among white supremacist groups attracted to his nationalistic rhetoric, has come under fire for blaming the Charlottesville violence on hatred and bigotry "on many sides."

Ivanka was more pointed in a tweet Sunday calling for unity. "There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis," she said.
