'We are deeply troubled': Ivanka and Jared's rabbis blast Trump's Charlottesville response

Ivanka Trump and Rabbi Haskel Lookstein

"I think there's blame on both sides". A 32-year-old woman was killed Saturday in Charlottesville when a vehicle driven by a white supremacist plowed into a group of counterprotesters.

In addition to Lookstein, who is rabbi emeritus, the letter was signed by Kehilath Jeshurun Rabbis Chaim Steinmetz and Elie Weinstock.

Trump's defiant statements, delivered on Tuesday at Trump Tower and immediately hailed by a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan for their "courage", left many lawmakers, Republicans and Democrats alike, speechless.

Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Orthodox Jews who have contributed to Democratic causes in the past, have often been expected to be moderating forces on their volatile father, although critics suggest there is little evidence that they have either tried or succeeded.

'On the day of the funeral of Heather Heyer, the 32 year old woman who was murdered by a vicious, white supremacist, neo-Nazi, we are all shaken by this human tragedy and all the frightful scenes from last Saturday's riot in Charlottesville and the frightening message and fallout that have consumed us since then, ' the letter to Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun and seen by Nymag.com said.

A broad array of politicians and others have criticized the president for waiting a full day to condemn the white supremacist groups that converged on Charlottesville and for stating repeatedly that counterprotesters were equally culpable for the street skirmishes that paralyzed the city.

Thousands of "Unite the Right" participants assembled in Charlottesville over the weekend to protest the slated removal of a statue honoring Confederate Army Gen. Robert E. Lee, but the event was effectively canceled after Gov. Terry McAullife declared a state of emergency late Saturday morning when demonstrators including Klansmen and other white supremacists violently clashed with counterprotesters. "We must all come together as Americans - and be one country UNITED".

Trump's comments were widely criticized, including by Republicans and Jewish groups, and praised by white supremacists.

Neither Kushner nor Ivanka Trump have publicly addressed the president's vacillating comments on the violent confrontations Saturday in Charlottesville.

"Let me ask you this", Trump said in his press conference, referring to the counter-protesters.

The first daughter condemned the violence in Charlottesville on Twitter last Sunday, but she has made no public remarks on the matter since.

"Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch", he continued. He was referring to Heather Heyer, the woman who was killed when she was struck by a vehicle driven into the crowd. "I'll say it right now".
