Rumors Fly After Ivanka Trump Vacations With Reported Girlfriend of Vladimir Putin

Ivanka Trump is taking a break from politics and business for a trip to Croatia, but a picture from her vacation is raising eyebrows again about whether her family has a connection with Russia.

Yesterday during a stop in Dubrovnik, the daughter of Republican candidate Donald Trump posted a picture to Instagram while she was sight-seeing with Wendi Deng Murdoch, ex-wife of media magnate Rupert Murdoch.

People Magazine has noted that Deng Murdoch and the Trump heiress have been friends for years, the former having set the latter up with her husband Jared Kushner. Even so, multiple outlets took interest in the photo with regard to the reports that Deng Murdoch is currently dating Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Deng Murdoch has denied these rumors in the past, but they continue to follow her. Given these circumstances, left-leaning outlets found the photo particularly intriguing because of how Donald Trump is still dealing with fallout from questions raised about his affinity for Russia.

Beyond Trump’s bromance with Putin, Trump has recently denied meeting him after previously saying he did, seemingly invited foreign hackers to infiltrate Hillary Clinton‘s email server, and his campaign manager is facing questions over his dealings with the Pro-Putin former president of Ukraine.
