It showed provocative pictures of Kelly posing in GQ Magazine with the text, "Criticizes Trump for objectifying women. Poses like this in GQ Magazine.”

Some Twitter users greeted the image with indignation after its publication Thursday morning.

“I am mortified that you would retweet this, @RealDonaldTrump,” one user wrote. "It is wrong on so many levels.”

“[You are] appalling,” tweeted another person. "A woman can’t be sexy and smart? No to [President] Trump!”

Other members of the social media platform posted photo shoots featuring Trump’s family members, including wife Melania Trump and daughter Ivanka Trump.

The outspoken billionaire’s actions were not without support Thursday morning, however.

“Her career is over,” tweeted one Trump supporter. “Save America [and] vote Trump for president.”
