Ivanka Trump defends Malia Obama

Ivanka urges the media to give the former US President's teenage daughter privacy.

Ivanka Trump has posted to her Twitter urging the media to give Malia Obama privacy.

This comes after Malia, 19, was photographed kissing her boyfriend, Rory Farquharson, the former head boy at the prestigious Rugby School in Warwickshire, England, at a Harvard-Yale game.

“Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers,” Ivanka Trump’s tweet read.

“She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.”

Malia Obama is 19-years-old.

Chelsea Clinton has also come to the defence of Malia on Twitter.

“Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your click bait,” the tweet read.

“Be better.”

A further video was also released of a girl, who resembled Malia, blowing smoke rings, however the video has since been taken down.

Many others have also jumped to Malia’s defence on Twitter.

Malia Obama is a student at Harvard University.
