Ivanka Trump takes father, US President Donald Trump's place at G20 meeting

Drechsler

As reported, Ivanka Trump, who's also the president's special assistant, arrived at the summit with her father.

Though Ivanka Trump will be an advocate for We-Fi moving forward, the White House has said she will play no operational, administrative or fund-raising role in the initiative. Ivanka is an adviser to her father at the White House.

But Trump - breaking with normal practice by United States presidents and many other leaders at the end of a G20 meeting - left Hamburg without holding a news conference.

President Trump on Saturday committed the U.S.to contributing $50 million to the new World Bank Group Facility for Women Entrepreneurship, one of First Daughter Ivanka Trump's causes.

The president's daughter attracted particular attention after a member of the Russian delegation tweeted a photograph of her sitting in her father's chair during an official summit event on Saturday.

A White House official confirmed Ivanka Trump sat in for Mr. Trump when the president of the World Bank began addressing the session.

Along with two of her brothers, Ivanka Trump became a powerful staple at her father's global organization and has been called one of his most trusted and loyal advisers. Back in March, she was pictured sitting next to Merkel in a round table about worker productivity in Berlin. It is a project initiated by US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump.

A point supported by lefty favorite, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who said she had no issues with it. "It might be the only bad thing going for her".

This is a disturbing echo of the time Trump barred the US press from his Oval Office meeting with Russian officials, while Russian government reporters were able to attend and photograph the meeting.

He said: "The Russian official probably would not have tweeted it without approval of her bosses and the message it sends out there is: 'You criticise Russia for not being a democracy; well, what kind of democracy is America?'"

Trump's 35-year old daughter is married to Jared Kushner, one of his top lieutenants, and is an accomplished businesswoman in her own right.

It's also not Ivanka's first appearance at a G20 event.
