Ivanka Trump has landed in hot water over a post she shared on social media after the deadly shootings in Texas and Ohio.
The oldest daughter of President Donald Trump decided to share what she assumed was a thoughtful message to the friends and family of the victims on the violent events.
Speaking out on Twitter, the businesswoman said this in her tweet, that evil such as terrorism and white supremacy must end.
The 37-year-old New Yorker said: “As our nation mourns the senseless loss of life in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio and prays for the victims and their loved ones, we must also raise our voices in rejection of these heinous and cowardly acts of hate, terror, and violence. White supremacy, like all other forms of terrorism, is an evil that must be destroyed.”
The gunman, who terrorized the Walmart in the El Paso shooting, left a manifesto where he bashed Hispanics and told police “shoot as many Mexicans as possible.”
Many bashed Ivanka who has failed to call out her father for his anti-immigrant tweets and his support for white supremacy.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) told Ivanka “try checking your dad,” and added: “Your prayers aren’t working. Try checking your dad on his tweets. Two hundred fifty-one mass shootings in the U.S. in 216 days. He incites violence every day w/ his hate agenda & racism. More people are dying b/c he fails to fight white supremacist terrorists.
They are the ones who hate America.”
One person reacted to the post by saying: “Ohhhh. Let’s set things straight many things of what’s going on is because of Trump. I don’t hate him. I dislike the way he speaks of other race that’s not white. Let’s put it how it is. He’s bringing hate towards Mexicans. The same hate the killer had with both mass shootings California and Texas.”
This voter added: “His own Trump Supporters are causing these acts of evil. Now, if it were Hispanics or African Americans doing this, he would be making his speeches differently. And what makes me mad is he doesn’t address the fact that own American Citizens are who are terrorizing this country. Build a wall to keep people out. It’s your own people who are causing this. #WeNeedANewPresident.”
Will the Trump administration change in light of these shootings?
