On Thursday, May 5th, Ivanka Trump posted a video of herself dancing with her children. The caption read:
Though the video is undeniably adorable, many are questioning its motives. A recent article in The New York Times points out that Ivanka has been told to post more motherly content:
An internal document lists one of her challenges as ‘perceived as rich and unrelatable.’ [An additional one: Most of her followers on social media were men.] Trump was told to post more down-to-earth pictures on her Instagram feed — less made-up model, more mommy.
The post is also getting some negative attention because Ivanka plugged in the caption. Though many authors use social-media to promote their products, very few of them also have high-level positions in the White House.
One commenter wrote:
While you are a working mother---you have loads of help...you know nothing about the stress involved with juggling your career and your family. How are you able to promote your book--aren't you supposed to follow strict ethical rules surrounding promoting your brand/business?
I think we can all agree Ivanka's sons Joseph and Theodore have a future in dance if they want it.
Here's the video:
