Ivanka Trump on Sunday took an afternoon of her family vacation in Croatia to walk through the scenic city of Dubrovnik with Wendi Deng Murdoch.
Deng, who was divorced from Rupert Murdoch in 2013 and who has been linked romantically to Russian strongman Vladimir Putin in recent months, was pictured in an Instagram photo alongside the GOP nominee’s daughter posted to Trump’s account.
“Sight seeing with @wendimurdoch in Dubrovnik,” the photo’s caption read.
The two are rumored to be friends, but the optics of the photo could raise further questions about the relationship between Ivanka’s father and Putin.
Trump has repeatedly made favorable statements about Putin.

Trump has repeatedly made favorable statements about Putin, and incorrectly stated that Putin would never invade the Ukraine, even though he did just that in 2014.
Trump has also urged Russian hackers to find and leak Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails and suggested the U.S. shouldn’t uphold its obligations to its NATO allies — ideas which both have spooked foreign policy experts in and out of the U.S. as well as officials in several European nations.
