Ever since announcing that he was running for president [VIDEO], Donald Trump has complained that he has received unfair treatment from the media and his critics. After his daughter Ivanka Trump doubled down during a recent interview on Fox News, the social media reaction wasn't as positive as the White House was hoping for.

Ivanka's view

It didn't take long before Donald Trump rose to the top during the Republican primary. Initially thought of as a joke candidate [VIDEO] who was looking to increase the ratings of his reality show, Trump quickly gained popularity and rode that momentum to the GOP nomination. Just a few months later and the former host of "The Apprentice" would go on to pull of the shocking upset over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and become the 45th President of the United States.

During that time, Ivanka Trump was slowly finding herself in the spotlight, as she was viewed as the one child of the president who had the most influence over him. Following the election, questions were raised as to what impact Trump's family would have on his administration. Son-in-law Jared Kushner found himself as a top adviser, with Ivanka being hired as a special assistant to her father. On June 12, Ivanka was interviewed on "Fox & Friends" and elaborated on the current political climate.

While joining the hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Monday, Ivanka Trump explained that she was surprised by how people have treated Donald Trump during his campaign and time in office.

"It is hard and there is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting," she said, while adding, "but this isn't supposed to be easy."

Twitter reacts

Not long after Ivanka Trump was interviewed on Fox News, social media users fired back with thoughts of their own. "Ivanka Trump's father-in-law once hired a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law and mailed the tape to his sister," reporter Mark Berman tweeted out.

"Imagine how hard it must have been for Sasha and Malia when your dad was leading the birther movement," another tweet noted.

"To @IvankaTrump: there was a level of viciousness coming from your father aimed at @POTUS44 that we did not expect. #birtherism #liar," an additional tweet read.

"There are poor Americans who today saw @IvankaTrump make her family out to be the victims of cruelty, and nodded their heads in agreement," corespondent Jamil Smith added. "@IvankaTrump how naive R U? Didn't expect ferocity? Really? Your father attacked Obama's legitimacy, & U didn't understand that? #MSNBC," another message pointed out. The backlash against Ivanka Trump continued as it was clear the partisan divide in the United States was not going to end anytime soon.
