US 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. 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 Trump 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. “We must all come together as Americans – and be one country UNITED. #Charlottesville”

    News reports on 12 August say that communities belonging to different races turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia State , which has obviously caused concern in US. Relevant to this news report is this Vedic astrology writer’s alerts of September 2016 for more care and appropriate strategy in article - “ Astrological probable alerts for US in 2017” - published last year in December 2016 issue of wisdom-magazine . While predicting that August- September in 2017 may be presenting major worrisome concerns in US , it was also said : -“ Briefly speaking , there is a need to take recourse to restraint among different communities and races”. So the violent incident of 12 August in Charlottesville , Virginia State, looks to be pointing to meaningfulness of the alert of this writer of September 2016 published in December 2016.
