Some are applauding First Daughter Ivanka Trump for acting presidential at a time when her father didn’t — or wouldn’t.
Virginia’s governor did it. The public, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie and other prominent Republicans condemned the “pre-meditated” violence spurred by hate groups in Charlottesville, Virginia. And while President Trump stopped short of calling out fascists, racists, and white supremacists, his daughter Ivanka Trump explicitly did, according to a report by New York Daily News.
President Donald Trump is under fire not for what he said, but what he failed to do in a time of crisis during the Charlottesville protests that turned deadly over the weekend. For days, opponents with the “Unite the Right” gathering lit candles and marched in protest ahead of the planned removal of a Confederate statute.
