Internet reacts to Ivanka sitting in for Trump at G20 meeting

Internet reacts to Ivanka sitting in for Trump at G20 meeting

This has been done before when others leaders vacated their seats for a short period of time.

A Russian official tweeted a photograph of Ivanka Trump sitting in between the duo and it immediately went viral.

Responding to Mr Trump's reference to her, Ms Clinton said "it would never have occurred" to her mother or father, former president Bill Clinton, to hand her a role at an global summit.

During his 2016 campaign, Trump frequently criticized rival Hillary Clinton's ties to her family's Clinton Foundation, which received millions in donations from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and several other Mideast nations for charitable work.

A senior Trump administration official told CNN on Friday, however, that Trump did not accept Putin's claim of noninterference.

Trump, who has angered world leaders with his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris accord on climate change, will likely have to leave that session early to make the Russian Federation meeting.

"Good morning Mr. President". When the US president stepped away from a discussion for a bilateral meeting with his Indonesian counterpart, Ivanka Trump took his place.

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.

As Trump boarded Air Force One in Germany for the long flight across the Atlantic, some G20 leaders were left to reflect that their fears that he would be a disruptive force on the world stage have unarguably come true.

Trump was assumedly defending his daughter following the G20 Summit this weekend in Hamburg, Germany.

John Avlon, Editor in Chief of "The Daily Beast" says, "This is the dichotomy of Donald Trump, right?"

While Trump critics had a field day with this, there were some people who saw absolutely nothing wrong with Ivanka sitting in her dad's chair so he could step out of the room for a moment. Also seated nearby were German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Turkey's President Recip Tayyip Erdogan. The BBC points out "high-ranking officials" usually cover for leaders when they are absent. "Ivanka Trump was part and parcel of the American delegation so that is something that other delegations also do".

Her decision to briefly fill in for her father immediately sparked a backlash, ranging from worldwide eyerolls to outright criticism.
