Mollie Tibbetts father has blasted Donald Trump Jr for using his daughter's death for political gain.

Grieving father Rob Tibbetts wrote an opinion piece in the Des Moines Register on Saturday where he blasted 'politicians and pundits' alike.

"The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is, to quote Donald Trump Jr., 'heartless' and 'despicable.' "

Trump Jr wrote his own opinion piece in the same newspaper.

He argued that many Democratic politicians were 'heartless' and 'despicable' by demanding that people focus 'on the 'real problems of our immigration system, such as the separation of families at our border.'

Pretty Iowa student Mollie was allegedly murdered by Cristhian Rivera.

He was a 24-year-old undocumented immigrant.
