Thus far, Ivanka Trump’s decision to join her father, Donald Trump, at the 2019 G20 meeting in Osaka, Japan, is not going as planned.
The entire planet is ridiculing the first daughter because of a video that was released by the French, and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having a field day with the “scandal.”
The now-infamous and viral video features, The Donald’s eldest daughter as she was having what many are calling an epic fail moment as she tries to play diplomat and powerful woman at one of the most critical meetings in international politics.

She’s acting like she’s sitting next to Idris Elba 😳All flirty and hair touchy😉Look at the face on the guy behind her 🤣😂 We feel your pain Sweetie 😖 The Guy next to her is OVER IT 😬 And Trudeau looks like he wants to come out with a huge EWE – Michelle Obama style 💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾 #Traitortrump – #regrann #IvankaTrump #DonaldTrump
In the clip, Trump joined Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who was in the middle of a passionate conversation with UK’s ongoing Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron and the International Monetary Fund’s chairwoman, Christine Lagarde.
The politicians were apparently talking about women’s rights or female representation prompting Trump to jump in and say “as soon as you talk about the economic aspect of it, though, a lot of people start listening who wouldn’t otherwise listen.”
She added: “And it’s the same with the defense side. In terms of the whole ecosystem, it’s been very male-dominated.”
May and Lagarde seemed confused by Trump’s unsolicited remarks. Many are saying that Trump is not qualified for these critical meetings nor to handle those matters and Ocasio-Cortez agrees.
AOC said: “It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification. It hurts our diplomatic standing when the president phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our president working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”

One person reacted by saying this: “How is mocking a know nothing bartender a defense of Ivanka? She just admitted she was “working in a restaurant in 2014″ and didn’t know what was happening at the border then. She didn’t have an awkward chat with them. She inserted herself awkwardly into their conversation.”
Another person stated: “Normally I’d agree, but this is the G20. All those individuals talking there are world leaders. Something is out of place; plus I don’t think to have a degree in economics qualifies you to be an advisor the president aka dad (nepotism) and representing all of us to heads of state.”

This voter claimed: “AOC is 60 thousand times smarter than Ivanka or Drumph, & her beauty is real, not made of plastic surgery or bleach. One works on jobs beneath one to survive if one’s not born with a silver spoon in one’s mouth. From bartending to Congress Member is a giant leap for humankind!”
Are the critics right or wrong to say Trump’s daughter should not be among the world leaders at the G20?
