MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka on Sunday urged the US citizens to fight racism and neo-Nazism following violent clashes between far-right activists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.
"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis. We must all come together as Americans — and be one country UNITED," Ivanka wrote on Twitter.
