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

A member of the Russian delegation has confirmed this report by tweeting an image of Ivanka Trump sitting in the meeting room between the British Prime Minister Theresa May and the Chinese President, Xi Jinping. That official explained to NBC News that "Ivanka was sitting the back and then briefly joined the main table when the President had to step out and the President of the World Bank started talking" about an initiative which she was working on.

President Donald Trump took some time near the tail end of his G20 trip to speak at the event, saying that the initiative, dubbed We-Fi (Women Entrepreneurs Finance Initiative) would transform "millions and millions of lives".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel didn't see a problem with Trump taking over her father's seat, in light of her role in the White House.

That facility, a women's entrepreneurship empowerment fund, was spearheaded by Ivanka and has grown to $300 million with the help of a $50 million USA donation. From an adviser to participating in a high-profile global summit, Ivanka seems to have expanded political roles within the Trump administration.

Donald Trump left the G20 to attend one-on-one meetings with other officials.

Palestine was recognised as a full member of Unesco in 2011 despite intense opposition from Israel and the US. Jewish tradition claims that Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Leah, are buried at the site.


Her appearance triggered a flurry of tweets and caught the attention of mass-circulation daily Bild, which carried a photograph of her on its website with the headline: "Trump's replacement: Ivanka Trump suddenly appears at negotiating table".

Trump is an advisor to the president, complete with West Wing office and security clearance, but does not take any pay. Ivanka serves as an unpaid adviser to her father in the White House.

President Trump and Chancellor Merkel attended that event, as seen in video shared by Ruptly, a news agency owned by the Russian government.

Donald Trump had earlier used a World Bank session on women's entrepreneurship to sing his daughter's praises. I have to tell you that.

Not saying if she thought it was appropriate or not, she said the American delegation makes the decision on who sits at what table. That might be the only bad thing she has going, if you want to know the truth. Most of the people expressed their shock as to how Trump allowed his unelected daughter to represent the United States at such an important forum.
