Ivanka Trump, the daughter and senior advisor to President Donald Trump, marked Valentine's Day by sharing a photo of her husband, fellow senior advisor, Jared Kushner. As with any message from a member of the Trump family, it was quickly met with memes and comments from social media users. They ranged the full gamut from support to anger.

"My love. My champion. My rock. My Valentine!" Trump wrote on Twitter, along with a heat emoji. Trump, 38, marked the first anniversary of the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative on Wednesday with a speech at the State Department before the introduction of the "W-GDP Act."
The rare bipartisan legislation was introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican, and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat. A companion bill is set to be introduced in the House by Rep. Michael McCaul, a Republican, and Rep. Lois Frankel, a Democrat.
"This legislation would permanently authorize W-GDP and establish women's economic empowerment as a core facet of the United States foreign policy, in line with the President's own national security strategy," Trump said Wednesday, reported CNN. She added it will "permanently elevate these efforts at the State Department by establishing for the first time ever in legislation an office of women's empowerment led by an ambassador-at-large."
The goal for the W-GDP initiative is to promote and enable women's economic empowerment, focusing on "eliminating legal and societal barriers that prevent women from fully participating in the economy." Still, critics have pointed out that the Trump administration has pulled back support for global health funding programs, including spending on reproductive health, contraception, child nutrition and more.
Shaheen has also fought to repeal the Mexico City Policy, known as the "Global Gag Rule." In he speech Wednesday, Trump said the administration's proposed fiscal yea 2021 budget W-GDP Fund doubled to $200 million, even as the president proposed a 22% cut for the Internal Affairs Budget.

So sweet! Happy Valentines Day to you both! Thank you so much for your dedication to our country!!— Pansy Edwards (@AileenPansy) February 14, 2020
Ivanka, I hope you're able to block and or mute all of the vile comments that come from the "tolerant" left. There are so many things that I could reply when someone from the liberal mindset post things, but I just don't waste my time.
Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!— Lynn - Text TRUMP to 88022 (@lynmacjay) February 14, 2020
Your partner in crime. Your co-conspirator. Wedded in opportunistic greed. Your accessory. Your accomplice. You’re ruining the country. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/6rNDV6JlBp— Jamie Schler (@lifesafeast) February 14, 2020
