Eric Trump has hit back at Gus Kenworthy for "shading" Ivanka Trump.

Donald Trump's son has slammed freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy after he shared a tweet insulting the US president's daughter last week. 

The 26-year-old took aim at Ivanka as she attended the Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony in Pyeongchang on Sunday (February 25). Kenworthy shared a snap of Team USA standing in a hall at the Closing Ceremony alongside a caption dragging the US presidential advisor.

"So proud of all these people! Everybody here has worked so hard to make it to the Olympics and have the opportunity to walk in the closing ceremony! Well... Everyone except Ivanka," Gus wrote.

He added: "Honestly, tf [the f**k] is she doing here?"

Ivanka brother's hit back at Kenworthy during an appearance on Fox & Friends this week. When asked about the skier's comments, Eric said: "It's gross.

"It's disgusting. Ivanka's beautiful. She's elegant. She was an incredible representative of this country and we should be very proud of her."

Eric then compared Trump's administration to Obama's and claimed that Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia, wouldn't have faced the same scrutiny.

"Can you imagine if Sasha or Malia went over to the Olympics and said that about them? That's not what the Olympics is about." 

Menawhile, Donald Trump, Jr. launched an unprovoked attack on gay figure skater Adam Rippon for tweeting about Mike Pence.
