Donald Trump has faced fierce criticism for not directly speaking out against the white supremacist protesters of the "Unite the Right" rally.

This morning, the UK Prime Minister took a different approach, saying in a statement: "Our thoughts and prayers are with #Charlottesville. The UK stands with the US against racism, hatred and violence."

Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, waded into the debate this afternoon, and took a more open stand against the protesters than her father, tweeting:
