On Sunday, Ivanka Trump posted to Twitter a cute photo of her hugging her son.

But in the current climate, with reports of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials ripping immigrant children from the arms of their parents to separate them indefinitely—and in 1,500 cases, to actually lose the children—the presidential daughter’s Twitter post was savaged immediately for being unfathomably tone-deaf.

And the reactions rolled in.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, blamed the Democrats on Twitter this weekend for the child-separation policy, even though it was a policy begun by his administration.
