Ivanka, who works in the White House as a senior adviser, wrote on the social media site: “The media’s near total silence about the physical violence being perpetrated against conservatives is shameful & dangerous.
“Just image the outrage and indignation if this went the other way.
“Violence is never the answer and instigators must be condemned and prosecuted.”
Author Kimberley Johnson though fired back: “You mean *your* silence about Kyle Rittenhouse murdering BLM protesters, @IvankaTrump.
“And you say nothing when white supremacist Proud Boys call for his release.
“You're a fraud and a traitor and you belong in prison.”
Rittenhouse shot and killed two men and wounded a third in August in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during unrest that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
Other Twitter users echoed the prison sentiments with 'Kate' telling her to "get ready for jail".
Another commentator said she had been silent over Kyle Rittenhouse.
Ivanka's comments came after her brother Don Jr also took to the platform to air his views, saying the media had encouraged the violence from ANTIFA supporters by constantly referring to anyone who held right-wing views as “Nazis”.
Trump’s children spoke out after the President labelled supporters of ANTIFA as “scum” in a Twitter message, claiming they attacked “innocent MAGA people”.
The outspoken comments from the Trump family came after the capital descended into violence and bloodshed as people who had taken part in the “Million MAGA March” fought with supporters of ANTIFA.
One Trump supporter was kicked in the head and stomped on.
As the man lay on the ground, multiple people were seen surrounding him, with their feet raised as they went to kick him and stop on his head.
He was later seen being escorted away by others, his face bloodied. Other pictures showed cops trying to break up a fight between members of the Proud Boys and supporters of Trump and counter-protesters.
Earlier anti-Trump protesters were seen throwing fireworks and bottles at his supporters as they dined outside a restaurant at around 6pm.
Proud Boys are self-described as having an “anti-political correctness” and “anti-white guilt” agenda.
The Southern Poverty Law Center describes the group as an "alt-right fight club."
In one image, a person lay on the ground in the fetal position trying to cover themselves as a man grabbed their shirt while cops tried to break up the brawl.
Videos showed protesters and counter-demonstrators trading punches, slaps, and shoving one another.
Some counter-demonstrators stole red hats and flags, and lit them on fire, according to The Washington Post.
A brawl broke out just five blocks from the White House around 8pm, and went on for several minutes before cops arrived and cleared the area, The Washington Post reported.
One man in his 20s was stabbed in the incidents and rushed to the hospital, a DC Fire official told The Post.
In one video posted on social media a woman can be heard repeatedly shouting ‘f**k Trump” as she set fire to a MAGA hat and held it aloft.
She then stamps on the hat to extinguish it on top of a Trump flag, which protesters then set fire to, while elsewhere Black and Blue flags were also reportedly burnt.
Footage also emerged showing a young pro-Trump couple with the young woman in tears pushing through a crowd of counter-protesters who threw eggs and unidentified liquids at them.
Supporters of Trump chanted “USA, USA” and “four more years” as they marched in the streets.
A punching match broke out between members of the group Refuse Fascism, who were dressed in black, and Trump supporters, the New York Post reported.
Members of the Proud Boys also went to the event in large groups, with some chanting "F**k Antifa" as they marched along Freedom Plaza.
A total of 20 people were arrested during the protests – four for firearms violations, two for simple assault, one for assaulting a police officer, two people for acting disorderly, and one for what the Metropolitan Police Department described as “no permit,” the local NBC station said.
