With the pressure mounting on the White House over the growing Russian scandal, the president is looking to find ways to deflect from the controversy at hand. The latest attempt to shift the media focus away from Russia comes in the form of Donald Trump's new plan for workers, which includes his daughter Ivanka Trump leading the way.

Ivanka on Twitter

Once it was clear that Donald Trump was going to be a serious contender for the presidency, questions were raised as to what impact his family would have on his campaign. Once the former host of "The Apprentice" pulled off the shocking upset with a win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November, speculation shifted onto whether or not his family would find their way into the administration.

While his two oldest sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, have been vocal at times in defense of their father, they've mostly stayed out of official government business. However, son-in-law Jared Kushner has been added to the team, with Ivanka Trump being hired as a special assistant to the president. In recent weeks, Trump has been under constant fire from Democrats and the majority of the mainstream media, especially following the recent testimony of former FBI Director James Comey. In what could be viewed as a potential distraction, Ivanka Trump took to Twitter on June 11 to promote "workforce development week" and the president's plans for hiring workers.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday night, Ivanka Trump did her best to put the focus on Donald Trump's plan to train individuals in the work force.

"Let's put America back to work by providing citizens with the skills & training they need to succeed," Ivanka wrote, before using the hashtag "#WorkforceWeek."

According to CBS News, "workforce development week" will focus on "streamlining current federal job training programs and expanding apprenticeship programs." In addition, Ivanka Trump has been tapped to lead the theme-focused week, which will conclude with a speech by the president.

Twitter reacts

Not long after Ivanka Trump sent out her tweet about Donald Trump's plans for workers, social media users were quick to fire back and didn't seem impressed with the president's efforts.

"You couldn't find anyone more qualified, than your daughter Ivanka, to help the American workforce? The madness never stops," musician Val Broeksmit tweeted out.

"How about saving healthcare for 23 million people?" novelist Milly Jong-Fast wrote on her Twitter account. "Your dad is championing fossil fuels over green energy. Maybe convince him to start training some coal miners to instal solar panels," Vice writer Justin Caffier tweeted out.

"You want to provide "skills and training to all American citizens?" then let them study what they want and pursue real careers and training," an additional tweet added. The negative reaction poured in as it was clear that Ivanka Trump would remain a top target by those who oppose the current administration.
