Black Twitter came for Ivanka Trump’s head after she posted over the weekend that “Black History is American History.”

The White House adviser noted “that our nation is stronger, better, and wiser for the contributions of black people” throughout history. But folks quickly chimed in on her comments to shade her father, who many are convinced is pushing an alt-right agenda.

To back up this theory, many called out the Trump administration for its lack of black senior White House officials and recalled some of his divisive rhetoric, which seems to be shaped by white supremacist ideologies.

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman even alleged in her book “Unhinged that “It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist. Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole,” she wrote in her memoir, per The Guardian.

Twitter users also pointed to Trump’s birther conspiracy that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States. Former First Lady Michelle Obama wrote in her memoir that she’ll never forgive him for promoting the bigoted conspiracy theory, per Yahoo.

Ivanka wasn’t the only Trump family member who had to be schooled after sharing what many considered to be an out of touch Black History Month tweet. First Lady Melania Trump also received backlash for a post that was dissected over several days.

  1. The APPLE don’t fall far from the tree. People let your family know its imperative that they register and vote in all ELECTIONS, Local, State and Federal. We still have two rough years to get through, and additional four will be very devastating.

  2. Melania the first person you need to school on diversity is your lying, conniving husband. Also it appears that the author of this article used the term “alleged” when describing a portion of Omarosa’s book. ‘Alleged?’ when most articles or comments are written about passages in a book….the word alleged rarely comes up. Instead it’s usually handled as whatever is in book is the truth, and nothing but the truth, or the gospel. So why say alleged in Omarosa’s case

  3. I wish all these damn trumps and trumpeters would all disappear. 2020 can’t get here fast enough. The clown in cheif WILL NOT BE RE-ELECTED!!!! 57% of the us real Americans say we will definitely not vote for him.

  6. Oh yeah I’m sure Ivanka was devastated and was really put in check by SM response a bunch of no-bodies living in their parents basement had to say
    As far as Black History isn’t that part of what makes America? At least that’s what MLK and other leaders always taught us, this being BHM I certainly consider this a far greater disrespect

      Exactly jhuf. Some are “damned if they do and damned if they don’t” Maybe they both were taking the time to recognize that, until we change change and/or expand it, this is the month that was designated as Black History Month. It seems that both Trumps were acknowledging that, giving props AND encouraging us all to remember to be inclusive!!!! I wonder why this picture of this man was pulled up NOW!!!

    She did right. Some lost black woman will support it. Already in the que is Diamond and Silk. These same women that support the Asian weave industry will no doubt continue to make this narrow plastic face twit rich.
