Ivanka praises her own work in farewell message as bitter Don Jr compares Biden to The Lion King’s Uncle Scar

Watch: Ivanka Trump’s emotional moment during Donald Trump’s farewell

Ivanka Trump praised her own work for American families in a farewell message as a bitter Don Jr compared Joe Biden to Uncle Scar from Disney’s The Lion King.

Members of the Trump family, who still have access to their main social media accounts unlike the outgoing president, signed off after four tumultuous years in the White House.

While the president’s daughter highlighted herself on Twitter, her elder brother took a bizarre shot at the president-elect on Instagram stories, in what appeared to be an attempt to undermine president-elect Biden’s presidential win.

“Remember in the Lion King when Scar cheated to win the title as king? And the pride land was overrun with the hyenas?” posted Don Jr.

“And all of the lions lost everything they had built and maintained? Just asking. No reason.”

Ivanka wished Joe Biden “courage and strength” and said that she was “excited for the future” as she leaves Washington DC for Florida.

“It has been the honour of a lifetime to serve our nation as an advisor to the president. I am so proud of what we have accomplished and excited for the future,” she wrote.

Observers speculate that Ms Trump could run for office, with suggestions she may go up against Florida Senator Marco Rubio in the 2022 primaries.

“The last four years have been an incredible journey. In travelling to nearly every American state and dozens of countries, I fell even more deeply in love with the American people,” Ivanka also wrote.

Ms Trump and husband Jared Kushner will not return to their hometown of New York City when their roles end on Wednesday.

Instead, they have signed a deal to lease a luxurious condominium in Miami, after spending $30 million for a plot of land on the exclusive Indian Creek “Billionaire Bunker” island.

On the eve of Mr Trump’s departure, Don Jr posted a picture on Instagram of his father hugging the American flag.

“Thanks dad! America owes you a debt of gratitude,” he wrote.

The president’s middle son, Eric Trump, posted a photo of himself with his father behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office to Instagram on Wednesday morning.

“It has truly been a beautiful journey...,” he wrote.

Other Trump associates posted their own farewell messages. Adviser Stephen Miller, architect of some of Trump’s most reviled polices on immigration including the travel ban and family separation, sent a going away note to his colleagues.

Shared by Washington Post White House correspondent Josh Dawsey, it read: “Fellow patriots - As we conclude our four years together in this hallowed home, I join you in taking immense pride and profound satisfaction in all that we have achieved for our country.”

He went on to say that “this is not goodbye”.

“I have no doubt we will very soon be fighting side-by-side together once more," he wrote.
