Unelected Ivanka Trump Replaces Father at G20

Unelected Ivanka Trump Replaces Father at G20

But the USA president's daughter spent part of her weekend sitting around a table with the Chinese, Russian and Turkish presidents, the German chancellor and the British prime minister.

The White House added that, "when other leaders stepped out, their seats were also briefly filled by others".

According to a previous article from the Inquisitr, it is not unusual for Ivanka to accompany her father to events and meetings and Trump raves about the help she's given him.

We-Fi was first announced by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the Women-20 summit in Berlin this spring, which Ivanka Trump attended on behalf of the administration.

Donald Trump had earlier used a World Bank session on women's entrepreneurship to sing his daughter's praises. The official who posted the photo later deleted her tweet.

The crash appears to have been unintentional and is not being considered an act of terror, police said. The driver was cooperating with authorities and was "known to be a very nice gentleman", McGinn said.

"If being complicit is wanting to...be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I'm complicit", she said.

Many critics questioned just why Trump's daughter, who is an official but unpaid adviser to her father, should represent the US on such an important world stage ― albeit for a short period of time. "It is very well known that she works at the White House and that she is engaged in certain initiatives", said Merkel. Trump's senior staff is dominated by men, despite the considerable influence of Ivanka Trump, who serves as a senior White House adviser.

"If she weren't my daughter, it would be so much easier for her", Trump said.

A photograph of the moment ricocheted across social media, and amplified some concerns about Kushner and Ivanka Trump's conflicting roles as presidential relatives and advisors.

Still, far be it from us to cast aspersions on a attractive father-daughter bonding moment, especially since Trump is clearly grooming his daughter for higher things; he took time out before today's session to heap even more praise on her head, calling her pretty much flawless. Many say they didn't realize Donald Trump voters were also voting for Ivanka.
