Ivanka Trump, who is said to be an advocate of women empowerment, has yet to make a comment on her father's controversial remarks against "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski. On Thursday, the U.S. president had an early morning tirade on Twitter where he slammed the MSNBC program and their hosts [VIDEO] in a pair of tweets for allegedly targeting him on the show.

Donald Trump infuriated both his critics and supporters for specifically criticizing the female host.

Most of them accused the U.S. leader of being sexist and condemned his behavior on social media. Several GOP lawmakers also agreed that the comments were uncalled for [VIDEO] and asked the president to stop attacking his critics.

Trump and his 'uncivil language'

Rep. Lynn Jenkins was among those who took offense of the president's remarks against the female "Morning Joe" host. "This is not okay. As a female in politics, I am often criticized for my looks. We should be working to empower women," she replied to the U.S. leader.

The Representative for Kansas, in an interview with CNN, said Donald Trump should just stop minding his critics and instead focus on doing something that would benefit the American people. Sen. Susan Collins underlined respect and civility among government officials and press members regardless of their differences.

"I think he needs to better appreciate the roles played by the three branches of government and by the media. We're not going to agree. We're not always going to get along. But there's no need for such uncivil language," she said of the president.

Ivanka and her stance on equality

The mother-of-three, first daughter, and the presidential adviser have been firm about her advocacy on economic empowerment of women and gender equality after she was appointed to work as her father's assistant in March. In fact, Ivanka Trump even insisted that her father has inspired her to fight for women and to embrace equality.

“My father is a feminist. He’s a big reason I am the woman I am today. People talk about gender equality.

He has lived it," she said in an interview with Time.

The first daughter even bragged about Donald Trump's appointment of women in his organization and thinks that this alone can prove that the president has high regards for women even before was he seated. “He’s also surrounded me with strong female role models who have done just that since I was a little girl," Ivanka Trump added.

But ever since the U.S. leader targeted Mika Brzezinski with his sexist comments, the public has heard nothing from the presidential daughter who promised to uphold the rights of women.
