President Trump’s eldest daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump received a rash of criticism from social media users after she posted a message of sympathy to those impacted by a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday.
Following reports that a shooting at a video game tournament left 2 dead and 11 others injured, Ivanka Trump tweeted, “As we await further details, our hearts are with Jacksonville and all those affected by today’s tragic mass shooting.” Some social media users responded by calling out the Trump daughter for standing by her father’s policies against gun control and support of the National Rifle Association after yet another mass shooting in the United States.
“Your father is in bed with NRA, he has removed barriers to mentally ill people getting weapons, and unless the perpetrator is a person of color, he will not give a damn. We have all the details we need,” responded one Twitter user.
“After Parkland you & your father had an opportunity to affect real change in gun reform. Instead you chose the NRA. Your time in the White House is coming to an end. You’ll leave knowing when you had a chance to save children’s lives, you took the easy way out & stayed silent,” added another.
Similar messages played out over the course of the evening as her tweet garnered over 3,500 replies.
