On Tuesday, millions of Instagram and Twitter users participated in “Blackout Tuesday,” a social media trend that called for justice for the late George Floyd. Tiffany Trump joined this trend by posting an all-black square on her Instagram account.

She captioned her post with a quote by Helen Keller, “Alone we can achieve so little; together we can achieve so much.” Tiffany also used the hashtags #blackoutTuesday and #justiceforgeorgefloyd.
