President Trump defends Ivanka for replacing him at G-20 summit

President Trump strongly defended first daughter Ivanka Trump for holding his seat at the G-20 summit this weekend, saying even German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed with the decision, Politico reports.

In a series of tweets Monday, he wrote; “When I left Conference Room for short meetings with Japan and other countries, I asked Ivanka to hold seat. Very standard. Angela M agrees!”

He followed up with another, saying, “If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!”

This follows the reaction to the President’s decision to allow his eldest daughter sit in for him at Saturday session after Trump stepped out, some saying the first daughter is not an elected official and had no clearance to stand in for heads of state.

The Clinton daughter responded to Trump on Twitter Monday morning, writing that it would have been unlikely for her to sit in for either parent. “Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not,” she wrote.

One White House official said Ivanka Trump was in the room, but only joined the table after her father stepped away and the World Bank president moved the conversation to issues that would benefit from the World Bank’s newly announced women’s entrepreneurship initiative.
