One of President Donald Trump's personal lawyers, who posted a picture of his daughter wearing lingerie from a modelling shoot, has hit back at critics on Twitter.

Michael Cohen posted the picture on Sunday night of daughter Samantha Blake Cohen wearing a black bra and tights.

He wrote: "So proud of my Ivy League daughter...brains and beauty channelling her Edie Sedgwick," a reference to the pioneering model and actress.

Some Twitter users responded to the post by calling it inappropriate.

Mr Cohen fired back by calling one user a "hater" and explaining that his daughter was recreating a famous Sedgwick pose.

He asked another critic if she was jealous.

Mr Cohen is a former Trump Organisation executive who served as a cable television surrogate for the Republican during the presidential campaign.
