Ivanka Trump sat in for her dad at the G20 and people are NOT happy

Bring Your Child To Work Day?

Rory Cashin

It all seemed to start off innocently enough…

Donald Trump would be meeting other world leaders at the G20 summit in Hamburg to discuss worldwide economic and financial stability, y’know, big and important topics like that. Basically the reason leaders of these countries are voted into power.

Donald’s daughter Ivanka was also in attendance, as was documented here:

Ivanka was primarily there to advocate the launch of the G20 Women Entrepreneurship Fund and the finance initiative behind it that would be providing the funding for the programme.

So far, so good.

Then this happened:

Yep, that would appear be Ivanka Trump sitting between UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese President Xi Jinping, taking part in talks about the future of the world as we know it.

It is reported that President Trump had to step out to take part is some bilateral meetings, but that wasn’t a good enough excuse for people who really weren’t super jazzed about the idea of a completely, as they put it, unelected and unqualified person representing them.

There is no report of Ivanka actually being any more involved than on any other “Bring Your Child To Work Day” might be, but even her presence at the top table is enough to have evoked a stern reaction.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on Donald’s twitter feed to see how he feels about the whole thing.
