President Trump has had an extremely busy week in Europe, which, in turn, created opportunities for daughter Ivanka to shine.
Not only did the First Daughter and the President roll out a new initiate that would create a $50 million fund for female entrepreneurs in America, but Ivanka Trump was seen taking a prime seat during the G20 Summit as her father attended to private meetings with world leaders. This is far from the first time that Ivanka has been called on to brandish the President’s visage in public, and the First Daughter has so far done a stupendous job of upholding the qualities of American women and leaders.
Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, took his seat at a Group of 20 meeting table in Hamburg, sitting in for the President when he stepped away for one-on-one meetings with world leaders.
“A photo on Twitter shows Ivanka Trump sitting at her father’s place, between Chinese President Xi Jinping and British Prime Minister Theresa May. One official who was watching the session said she has taken her father’s place at the table on at least two occasions today and did not speak.
“A spokesman for Ivanka Trump said she had been sitting in the back of the room and then briefly joined the main table when the president stepped out. The president of the World Bank addressed the meeting, which was about African migration and health — areas that would benefit from a facility that Ivanka Trump and the World Bank had announced shortly before the meeting, the spokesman said.
“G-20 leaders are allowed to bring staff into the room for some of the meetings, and when other leaders stepped out during today’s session, their seats were briefly filled by others. Ivanka Trump serves as an unpaid adviser to her father, as an assistant to the president.”
Ivanka’s role in her father’s decision making has not been fully transparent, but rather apparent in the more delicate situations that the President faces.
Donald Trump certainly trusts the judgement of his eldest daughter, as evidenced by her ability to coerce her father to action after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used illegal and unethical chemical weapons on his own people early in Trump’s first term. The U.S. President openly admitted that Ivanka herself had urged the action after witnessing the horrific aftermath of the attack, citing the United States’ commitment to battling moral ambiguity in its global purpose.
You go, girl.
