Ivanka Trump under fire after taking seat among world leaders at G20

09 July 2017

The photo above tweeted by a member of the Russian G20 delegation, and later deleted, shows Ivanka seated at the leaders table between United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May and Chinese president Xi Jinping.

Svetlana Lukash, a Russian official attending the G20 summit, snapped the eyebrow-raising image of Ivanka but later deleted it from her Twitter account.

The official also noted that it's customary for a representative of the president's delegation to occupy his seat if he steps out of the room and that other nations follow the same practice.

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.

The World Bank launched a public-private loan programme aimed at providing financial support to women entrepreneurs in developing countries, a project first initiated by Ivanka Trump.

President Trump's daughter participated in high-level meetings throughout the summit including a World Bank panel on women's entrepreneurship with several high-ranking global officials.

The creation of the facility was Ivanka Trump's idea as she held meetings on the topic of women's empowerment during the beginning of her father's administration, including one with World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, who shepherded the facility's creation.

People related to bookstores handling books that are critical of the Chinese Communist Party have gone missing one after another. One of the movement's leaders, Joshua Wong, was taken away in handcuffs for the second time in three days, but later released.

Many critics questioned just why Trump's daughter, who is an official but unpaid adviser to her father, should represent the USA on such an important world stage ― albeit for a short period of time.

Trump soon returned from his meeting with the Indonesian leader and took his place between UK PM May and Chinese President Xi.

Her husband - Trump's son-in-law - is assistant to the president and senior adviser, a top White House role.

"I'm very proud of my daughter Ivanka, always have been from day one".

Ivanka Trump's involvement in global politics has raised eyebrows.

Some attacked her or used her to attack President Trump - and a number simply asked why she was even there. The White House gender pay gap has tripled since Trump took office, but I guess that's just one of those issues - like climate change and all the other bad things that you hate - that Ivanka disagrees with her father on.
