'Must be nice to have your family': Ivanka Trump slammed for sharing family photos on Instagram

Ivanka Trump has been criticised for posting cuddly family pictures to her Instagram from a recent camping trip.

The eldest daughter of US President Donald Trump shared photos of her two sons and husband, Jared Kushner, on a camping trip over the weekend. The 37-year-old has been documenting the family break on Instagram for her 5 million followers to see. 

One particular picture of Trump cuddled up with her children has sparked criticism from social media users. Many have drawn comparisons between Trump's cosy family vacation and the migrant families currently detained in US border detention centres.

"Must be nice to have your family when thousands are separated and locked in cages," one person commented on the photo.

The picture, shared on Sunday (local time), is captioned: "Sunday morning vibes... we got together like campfire and marshmallows!"

"Disgusting that you're in a comfy bed [while] your father has migrant children sleeping on a cement floor," said another.

Another Instagram user slammed the President's advisor, writing: "I wonder how those children are waking up on Sunday morning in cages? You know, the ones your dad took away from their parents." 

A photo uploaded to Trump's Twitter last week also proved controversial. Captioned 'where the wild things are', the picture shows the 37-year-old standing among flowers in a picturesque location.

"So happy you get to enjoy nature. Future generations won't get that opportunity after your father destroys any and all environmental protections. But wow!! Great insta," one person commented.

Donald Trump has continued to deny climate change, notoriously referring to it as a "hoax". 

"Look at that beautiful sky, those amazing trees... all being destroyed because your administration refuses to care about the earth or believe in climate change," wrote another.

The backlash follows a string of controversies for the President's daughter. Last month, Trump was mocked after footage capturing her awkwardly interrupting a conversation between world leaders at the G20 summit went viral. In June, the businesswoman faced criticism over her "inappropriate" choice of dress for the Buckingham Palace state banquet.
