Internet reacts to Ivanka sitting in for Trump at G20 meeting

10 July 2017

It's another step on the road of figuring out what, exactly, is the role the first daughter plays in the Donald Trump White House.

Ivanka, who serves as an unpaid adviser to her father, sat in briefly during a meeting for "Partnership with Africa, Migration and Health", led by the head of the World Bank.

Mr Trump returned a short while later to retake his seat between the British prime minister and the Chinese president. "Telling that pic of Ivanka at G-20 table was posted by Russian staff", CNN's Ana Navarro wrote on Twitter.

Haley pointed to the efforts of President Trump's elder daughter on certain issues, which include female entrepreneurs in the work place, paid family leave and combatting starvation.

Charles M Blow, a noted journalist with New York Times, questioned Ivanka's qualification to sit-in for Trump. Nordstrom shares sunk after President Trump tweeted that the department store chain had treated his daughter "so unfairly" when it announced last week that it would stop selling Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessory line.

A Trump administration official confirmed that Ivanka took the place of her father when he "had to step out" (got bored), but denied there was anything odd about an apolitical socialite taking a seat at a table populated by world leaders. The leaders of the group of 20 meet July 7 and 8.

GETTYThe CBI faced backlash after they advised the Government to agree a long transitional deal

This is a bit of a surprise from someone who, less than a month ago, told Fox News she tries to stay out of politics.

I think it's more what you'd expect from a dictator really, using a family member to represent himself at an global summit, than you'd expect from a democratically elected American president. "And I want to help him do that".

World Bank said on Saturday that it will act on the idea developed alongside Ivanka Trump by starting a fund to finance women entrepreneurs.

The fund cements the World Bank's ties to the Trump family at a time when President Donald Trump's administration has questioned the wisdom of financing poor countries and emerging markets with US cash.

"I'm very proud of my daughter Ivanka, always have been from day one, I have to tell you that", Trump said. On Saturday, Trump said that it might be easier for her if they weren't related.
