Ivanka trumps her critics, it seems.

JetBlue dismissed Couple Dan Goldstein and Matt Lasner from their Hawaii-bound plane on Thursday after Goldstein made it clear he did not like the president-elect’s daughter on board.

Ivanka Trump, alongside her husband and children, reportedly delayed the flight by boarding the plane first due to security concerns. Goldstein was distraught by this, according to NY Daily News.

“Oh my God, this is a nightmare,” they report a witness quoting the disgruntled passenger. “They ruin the country and now they ruin our flight.”

Goldstein, an attorney, was also reportedly questioning why the First Daughter was on the plane.

"Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private." Ivanka and her family were flying coach, according to TMZ.

Another witness, Marc Scheff, said Goldstein was “agitated” but not yelling. JetBlue staff soon escorted the couple off of the plane.

“JetBlue kicked us off our flight when a (flight) attendant overheard my husband expressing displeasure about flying w/Trumps,” Lasner wrote in a tweet that was later removed.

Witnesses claim that Ivanka was calm, distracting her children from the ordeal. After the incident, JetBlue released a statement.

"The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly,” it read. “If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight."

Since the incident has gone viral, Ivanka Trump's fans have retaliated by leaving over a hundred negative one-star reviews on Lasner's book "High Life: Condo Living in the Suburban Century" on its page.
