Ivanka Trump can't avoid the scrutiny on social media.

She's received a lot more backlash ever since her father Donald Trump took office in January. People are not happy with his politics and they're making their voices known every day. Ivanka Trump claims that she's not a political person even though she's happily working in the White House with her father. Her 2016 income was released and the internet is taking another swipe at her once again.

Ivanka Trump loves to post inspiring quotes on her social media accounts. This time around, however, she misquoted Albert Einstein, and the internet enjoyed it. The first daughter became the brunt of jokes on social media after an old tweet she wrote misquoting Einstein surfaced over the weekend. Her quote, which was written in June 2013, was noticed by a Twitter user and went viral once again.

"'If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.' – Albert Einstein #quote #sunday" she wrote in the post on Twitter. Her old tweet prompted people to share their own misattributed quotes, according to Newsweek.

"One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach: all the damn vampires - Emily Bronte," one wrote.

The criticism of her original tweet appeared when one Twitter used shared it and wrote: "The fact that Einstein never said any such thing only makes this tweet much more perfect."

This came amidst the report that Ivanka or her trust received $12.6 million in early 2016 from her various business ventures. She and her husband Jared Kushner received $761 million from their business empire. Ivanka has an arrangement to receive $1.5 million per year as she serves her top White House position, reports CNBC.

The report was released alongside an updated filing by her husband, Jared Kushner, who also serves as a top adviser to Trump. The couple has received most of their money from their business empire worth $761 million. Experts claim that this poses as a conflict of interest as the couple is now entangled with their government responsibilities.

Ivanka receives millions from both her real estate businesses and her fashion brand. She receives over $2.4 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington and over $2.5 million in salary and severance from the Trump Organization. Ivanka also received $1.7 million from T International Realty, the family's real estate agency, along with other real estate companies, according to the financial documents. Those payments were based on the companies' performance.

Ivanka will receive fixed payments moving forward. She will receive $1.5 million in fixed payments from three real estate agencies. And she will continue to earn additional income from her stake in the hotel in Washington. In March, Ivanka joined the White House as an official government employee. Through May, she continued to make $1 million to $5 million from a trust related to her fashion line.

Ivanka's position at the White House could be used to benefit her family's companies rather than benefit America.

"There still may be financial ties that we don’t know about," Lawrence M. Noble, a former general counsel and chief ethics officer of the Federal Election Commission, told the New York Times. "These really weren't meant to deal with a situation where somebody's going to keep a major business interest."
