US President Donald Trump’s youngest daughter Tiffany Trump has backed people protesting against racial discrimination in the United States.
Tiffany Trump posted a black image with a quote from author and activist Helen Keller: “Alone we can achieve so little; together we can achieve so much.” She also included the hashtags #blackoutTuesday and #justiceforgeorgefloyd.
The Blackout Tuesday campaign, a collective action to protest racism and police brutality, swept across the social media on Tuesday amid worldwide protests over the death of George Floyd. Floyd, a Black man, was killed in Minneapolis last week after a white police officer pressed his knee onto his neck.
Tiffany Trump is Donald Trump’s youngest daughter. Her mother is Trump’s second wife, actress and TV personality Marla Maples. Her parents divorced in 1999, she was raised by her mother.
Tiffany Trump, who recently graduated from Georgetown Law School, received mixed responses on her post. While some followers thanked her for ‘saying something’, others advised her to start by changing her father’s opinion on the matter first. “Hey Tiffany, have you tried to talk to your father about the racist and dangerous words he’s been using throughout his presidency? That seems like a great place to start,” an Instagram user said.
President Trump has called Black Lives Matter protesters as thugs and has threatened them with military action.
