Ivanka Trump temporarily takes father's seat at G20 meeting

Solar Powered London

G20 leaders are entitled to bring staff into the room for some meetings and, when other presidents and prime ministers ducked out during Saturday's session, their seats were briefly filled by others.

Should the president need to leave a G20 session, he or she is typically replaced by a member of their cabinet.

"Ivanka Trump, unelected, unqualified, daughter-in-chief, is representing the USA at the G20 summit next to May, Xi, Merkel", tweeted Brian Klass. Saturday morning also saw Ivanka help promote the Women's Entrepreneurship Facility Initiative, a World Bank fund for female entrepreneurs.

The posts and tweets are endless as people found Ivanka sitting in a seat that is reserved for the person America voted into office extremely inappropriate.

"She's a champion. If she weren't my daughter it would be so much easier for her", he continued.

HTC 'Ocean Life' to offer Edge Sense at a mid-range price tag
The " Ocean Life " codename gives good indication that this is indeed what HTC has in mind since the U11 is codenamed "Ocean". Notably, the tipster has further revealed that just like the HTC U11, the Ocean Life will also have the Edge Sense technology.

According to the Washington Post, on Thursday evening, she and her husband-who like his wife has an official role in the White House-joined the president at a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Trump said he'd been proud of her since "day one", and offered a rare, self-deprecating assessment of the challenges he's added to her life.

Although she does have a White House position, many people questioned if she was really qualified to take on such a task, as absences at the G-20 summit are usually covered by high-ranking state officials.

Someone attending the G20 said Trump, who's an unpaid White House adviser, was spotted subbing in for the commander in chief two other times, Bloomberg reported. Just a few weeks ago Ivanka professed to want to avoid getting involved in politics. For his part, President Trump expressed his satisfaction with his senior advisor during the G20 Summit. "I have to tell you that, from day one", he said.

Still, far be it from us to cast aspersions on a lovely father-daughter bonding moment, especially since Trump is clearly grooming his daughter for higher things; he took time out before today's session to heap even more praise on her head, calling her pretty much ideal.
