But many found the comment condescending. The 15-year-old girl called Jyoti Kumari had cycled with her sick father over a distance of 1200km, 745 miles, amid India’s nationwide coronavirus lockdown. The girl was transporting her father to his birthplace in Bihar, India.

But the wife of Jared Kushner took to Twitter on Friday to highlight the story of the Indian girl.

The girl’s cycling feat has now become world news.

Ivanka Trump’s tweet said: “15-year-old Jyoti Kumari, carried her wounded father to their home village on the back of her bicycle covering plus 1,200 km over 7 days.

“This beautiful feat of endurance and love has captured the imagination of the Indian people and the cycling federation!”

Ivanka has visited India twice, most recently in February this year along with her father.

She also visited in 2017, where she led the US delegation at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.

The girl, called Kumari, has now been asked by the Cycling Federation of India to appear for a trial next month.

But, US President Donald Trump’s daughter is not the only one from his family causing controversy on Twitter.

Last week Melania Trump caused a Twitter storm after she posted a message to commemorate National Women’s Health Week.

The event that took place between May 10 and May 16 is a weeklong health observance led by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health.

It serves as a reminder for women and girls to make their health a priority, a message that particularly resonates during the current coronavirus pandemic.

Melania posted her message of support last Saturday, which said: “This National Women’s Health Week and beyond, we will continue to invest in women and girl’s social, emotional & physical health.

“Let’s continue to support and protect their well-being.”

However, her critics were quick to point out that her husband’s administration had cut spending on women’s health.

One wrote on Twitter: “Then why, if you do actually care about women’s health, has your husband continued to cut funding for Planned Parenthood.”

Another fumed: “Obvious you and your husband aren’t on the same page.

“But it seems that every Trump member is playing & presenting different roles to the public to try and confuse what they are really doing.

“But because you’re all greedy, we know what the Trumps are about and it’s not the people or USA.”
