Ivanka Trump posted a tweet about the Finsbury Park attack that left one dead, several injured outside a mosque in London. But her father, Donald Trump, remains predictably silent. Why? Because the perpetrator wasn’t a Muslim, but a white man.
Ivanka tweeted: “Sending love and prayers to the victims in #FinsburyPark London. We must stand united against hatred and extremism in all it’s ugly forms.”

Um, Donald Trump’s selective silence is deafening. He gleefully tweeted about the need for his travel ban when several people injured, some killed, during the London Bridge terrorist attack in early June.
That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!

Reaction on Twitter:
So don't expect to see a Trump tweet. This doesn't support his ridiculous travel ban or paint Islam as the enemy. Just a human tragedy. https://t.co/63EcsNsVsz
