It's been exactly two years since #Donald Trump became an official politician. After #Ivanka Trump sent out a tweet in celebration, social media critics decided to fire back.

Ivanka's tweet

It all started two years ago back in June 2015 on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City. With members of his family by his side, Donald Trump announced that he was going to run for president, and do so as a Republican. At first, the consensus was that Trump's candidacy was more of stunt than a legitimate run for office, with some speculating that he was only trying to generate interest for his reality show. However, as time went on, the former host of "The Apprentice" gained a surprising amount of popularity and found himself accepting the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention last summer.

Just a few months later and Trump shocked the world with his win over Hillary Clinton on his way to being sworn in as the 45th President of the #United States. In the six months that he's been in office, Trump has created even more controversy than during his campaign, with his critics holding his feet to the fire on a daily basis. Despite this, Ivanka Trump decided to celebrate her father's two-year anniversary as a politician during a tweet on June 16.

Taking to Twitter on Friday night was Ivanka Trump, as she appeared proud of her father for making the decision to run for office. "Today marks two years since we embarked on this incredible journey to Make America Great Again," Ivanka tweeted out. While the Trump family appears pleased, at least in public, that Donald Trump ran for office and became the new commander in chief, many Americans are not on board the Trump train and decided to voice their opinion.

Twitter reacts

Moments after Ivanka Trump's tweet about Donald Trump and his run for office, social media critics of the president lashed out. "Is this tweet sarcastic?" Roland Scahill wondered.

"Your supporters defend you by claiming you're clueless, are you?" one Twitter user asked. In a tweet that mocked Ivanka's post, Jeremy Greenfield wrote a satirical version of a letter that the first daughter might have written to her dad. "Dear President Daddy, Happy anniversary! Who knew you could become President without knowing anything and by being mean? Love, Ivanchka," Greenfield posted.

"Yep, you've gifted your way into the White House and Daddy and Jared are both under investigation! Yay!" another tweeted noted. "A nation cries out and you celebrate? You are totally, unforgivably tone deaf. History is a harsh judge," an additional post read. As the backlash continued, it was clear that the partisan divide in the United States wasn't going to end anytime soon.
