United States President Donald Trump's Senior Advisor and American businesswoman Ivanka Trump has hit out a Washington DC museum for featuring art that looks like her with a vacuum cleaner in hand. Wearing a pink knee-length dress and stilettos, the woman has a startling similarity to the first daughter. The art piece by Jennifer Rubell opened on February 1 and will continue till February 17 at the Flashpoint Gallery. At the museum, the public is encouraged to "throw crumbs on to the carpet, watching as Ivanka elegantly vacuums up the mess, her smile never wavering".

The art gallery calls Ivanka a "contemporary feminine icon." Criticising the art, Ivanka took to Twitter saying, "Women can choose to knock each other down or build each other up. I choose the latter." A giant pile of white bread crumbs are kept in front of the art from which people can pick and throw some at the vacuum cleaner. Ivanka Trump Lookalike!

Here is Ivanka Trump's tweet:

A press release for the exhibit says, "Inspired by a figure whose public persona incorporates an almost comically wide range of feminine identities -- daughter, wife, mother, sister, model, working woman, blonde— 'Ivanka Vacuuming' is simultaneously a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing."

Ivanka's brother Donald Trump Jr. also hit out at the art saying, "Sad, but not surprising to watch self professed "feminists" launching sexist attacks against @IvankaTrump. In their crazed world, sexism is OK if hurts their political enemies. That's ok, they can go put on their stupid hats & she'll get back to actually fighting for women."

CulturalDC website quoted Rubell as saying in a statement, "Here is what's complicated: we enjoy throwing the crumbs for Ivanka to vacuum. That is the icky truth at the center of the work. It's funny, it's pleasurable, it makes us feel powerful, and we want to do it more. We like having the power to elicit a specific and certain response. Also, we know she'll keep vacuuming whether we do it or not, so it’s not really our fault, right?"
