While speaking on "Fox & Friends" about Democrats' criticism of his father's administration, Eric Trump referenced a Washington, D.C., art installation currently open at the Flashpoint Gallery where guests are encouraged to throw crumbs at a silent, smiling model dressed to resemble president's elder daughter.

"These leftists called up a modeling agency, saying, 'You know what, I want to get a nice woman to come stand on a carpet, with a vacuum of all things, so that our people can throw food and crumbs to mimic a powerful woman who has done more for women than probably anyone in Washington, D.C.," Trump said.

"Think about that hypocrisy," Trump continued. "They label themselves the quote, unquote 'party of women,' yet they're throwing food, they're throwing garbage at a woman on a carpet holding a vacuum cleaner to mimic someone who really does care and who has fought so hard for women."

Trump went on to assert that Democrats were "losing people" with their rhetoric aimed at members of the president's family.

Ivanka Trump has been the subject of criticism from Democrats since her appointment to the White House as an adviser in 2017, including last year during the dispute over the Trump administration's controversial "zero tolerance" immigration policy that resulted in the separation of families caught crossing the border illegally.

She also came under fire late last year when it was revealed that she had sent hundreds of emails related to White House business from a personal email account, in violation of federal records rules.
