"Sight seeing with @wendimurdoch in Dubrovnik," Trump captioned the photo in which she tagged Deng Murdoch, ex-wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

Judging by the comments section of the post, the photo caused quite a stir, and it's likely to fuel further speculation about the Trump family's supposed ties to Putin's Russia.
"Wendi Murdoch is Putin's girlfriend," an Instagram user named malaikadiva commented.
"Trump's daughter hanging with Putins bae smh," andres_jfk@grnole15 wrote.
"Something about Vladimir's little hands," commenter fiondavision added.
"Enemy of this nation," nevergivingup1234 opined.
"@ivankatrump @wendimurdoch send my regards to Putin!
"What a crooked relation ... everything make sense !" paulvero1 wrote.
"This is a major fail. Your father is running for president of the United States and you're hanging out with Putin's girlfriend. Doesn't that seem a bit foolish when Americans are questioning his relationship with Putin?" mattberri commented.
Multiple news outlets jumped on the post, offering their own commentary on what this could mean for Republican nominee Donald Trump.
People Magazine pointed out that Deng Murdoch and Ivanka Trump have been friends for years and that Deng Murdoch even set Trump up with husband Jared Kushner.
Deng Murdoch has denied rumors that she is dating Putin, but judging by the comments section and reports that followed the Instagram post, skeptics abound.
The post comes amid allegations that Donald Trump colluded with Russian hackers who attacked rival Hillary Clinton's private email server and infiltrated the Democratic National Committee's emails as well. Trump has noted in the past that he admires Putin but recently denied that he's ever met the leader in person.
