It was perhaps to be expected that Jennifer Rubell's new piece Ivanka Vacuuming, which is now being staged in Washington, D.C., would cause some sort of controversy, given that it invites audience members to throw crumbs at a pink rug that is being vacuumed by a performer resembling President Donald Trump's eldest daughter.

The piece by New York-based artist Jennifer Rubell, titled "Ivanka Vacuuming", invites visitors at the Flashpoint Gallery in Washington to "throw crumbs on the carpet, watching as Ivanka elegantly vacuums up the mess, her smile never wavering".

President Trump's son on Tuesday said his sister Ivanka Trump "has done more for women than probably anyone in Washington, DC".

The installation, put on by artist Jennifer Rubell, features an actress resembling Ivanka Trump clad in pink and vacuuming.

But the First Daughter, 37, was not impressed by the installation and tweeted: 'Women can choose to knock each other down or build each other up. "I choose the latter".

Speaking on Fox & Friends about the Democrats' criticism of his father's administration, Eric Trump told the audience about a Washington, D.C. art installation now open at the Flashpoint Gallery.

The gallery text declares Ivanka Trump to be a "contemporary feminine icon" and an avatar for the complexities of modern femininity.

It calls the act of throwing bread crumbs onto the carpet for her to vacuum "surprisingly pleasurable".

"Think about that hypocrisy", he said of the exhibit.

Lara Trump's claim that Ivanka "has done arguably more for women in this country than nearly anyone else" comes the day after civil rights icon Rosa Parks would have turned 106 years old.

She told Refinery 29: 'Usually the qualities of feminism and femininity are seen in opposition.

'Most women clearly lean toward one side or the other in their self-presentation. Something very interesting about Ivanka - her clothing line, too - is that it seems the goal is to achieve both of these qualities as part of the conversation.

'This is something women struggle with, and her conclusion is unusual and interesting'.

"I'm most interested in the complications of the viewer; how they decide to engage with this feminine figure", she added of the crumb-throwing element, which she said represented "the cheapness of our appreciation of her [and] her desire to clean things up".

Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee tweeted: 'Let's be clear.

Ivanka Vacuuming is on view until February 17.
