On Saturday, Ivanka Trump sat in her father’s seat at the G20 summit meeting in Hamburg while he was in a one-on-one discussion with other world leaders. This move is causing a lot of commotion on social media.

A photo on Twitter shows Ivanka sitting next to Chinese President Xi Jinping, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. This photo was first tweeted by Svetlana Luka. It seems as though Luka deleted her tweet because the tweet is nowhere to be found. Someone pointed out that she may have deleted the picture but retweeted a story about it.

According to a senior Trump administration official, Ivanka took her father’s seat while rejecting any suggestion that this was improper or unusual.

“Ivanka was sitting in 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 as the topic involved areas such as African development — areas that will benefit from the facility just announced by the World Bank,” the official stated.

The official added, “When other leaders stepped out, their seats were also briefly filled by others.”

There were other photos that show Ivanka and Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, were seated behind Donald for part of the meeting.

As we all know very well, our president likes to blur family lines with official White House duties.
