First Lady Melania Trump urged an end to violent clashes that broke out Saturday between far-right groups and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let’s communicate w/o hate in our hearts,” the first lady tweeted. “No good comes from violence.”

Melania’s call for a de-escalation of violence in the Virginia college town came as the state’s governor, Terry McAuliffe, declared a state of emergency and police ordered protesters gathered in Charlottesville’s Emancipation Park to disperse.

Her husband, Donald Trump, has not yet commented on the protests, despite calls to do so by some lawmakers, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

“March & rally in Charlottesville against everything the flag stands for. President Trump must condemn in strongest terms immediately,” Schumer wrote on Twitter.

Speak of the House Paul Ryan tweeted, “The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant. Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.”

And here is David Duke, a member of the KKK, praising Donald Trump:
