Ivanka Trump has often come under the public scanner for the questionable things she does. After staying away from social media for eight long months, the former advisor to father Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump resurfaced on Instagram on January 18.

She share some 'stylized' images of her participating in a food drive in Rochester, New York, last week, but ended up facing backlash for trying to 'rehab' her public image just before the hearing that discussed financial dealing in Trump's organization.

A few hours before a motion against the Trump family and organization was filed in court, Ivanka Trump shared the images of herself with the caption, "Thanks to our incredible partners + volunteers who helped feed families across Idaho & NY fresh, locally-sourced produce & dairy this holiday season. 1.1 M pounds of dairy + produce delivered 1.3 M meals served 52,000+ food boxes distributed 100% privately funded"



 

New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a motion relating to the ongoing investigation of financial dealings in Trump's organization regarding the business practices that were alleged fraudulent. James said in a statement, "Thus far in our investigation, we have uncovered significant evidence that suggests Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization falsely and fraudulently valued multiple assets and misrepresented those values to financial institutions for economic benefit."

The motion says, "significant evidence indicates that the Trump Organization and its executives used fraudulent or misleading asset valuations to obtain a host of economic benefits, including loans, insurance coverage, and tax deductions."

Ivanka Trump's post received a lot of negative comments. Bess Levin of Vanity Fair criticized Ivanka Trump for the photos. He wrote, "she did not even indicate information for people who may still be looking for food assistance. Less clear is how posting several stylized photos of the event after the fact – and with no information for people who may still be looking for food assistance – helps anyone but herself."

On social media, one user said, "Cant you see the result of Trump Admi negotiations with Taliban in ? Thousands of women are tortured, face acute hunger. Millions children have no food. Half the population of Afghanistan is hungry. Human rights violations are casual and regular. An entire nation is abandoned."



 

 

Another said, "Thank you for this Republicans need to hear this from real Afghanis Can I ask you how if felt, when Pompeo met with the Taliban leader in Doha without inviting the actual Afghan government? Frankly it disgusted a lot of us here in the States....Trump surrendered to the Talibs"



 

Another user said, "Did you know that Trump administration was the one ignoring Afghans presence and government presence in negotiating a deal with Taliban. Imagine A and C deciding the fate of B, without his involvement. The result will be disastrous for B, right?"



 

Pointing out at who may need such help more, a user said, "You missed the point. There are millions of people here in need. If Afghanistan s your passion, do something about it."
