Ivanka Trump Takes Father's Seat at G20

President Donald Trump joked Saturday during the Women's Entrepreneurship Finance event at the G20 Summit that Ivanka might find success easier to come by if she weren't his daughter

Svetlana Lukash, who describes herself on Twitter as a "Russian G20 sherpa" had earlier tweeted that the president's unelected White House assistant had at first arrived accompanying her father.

An official who was present told Bloomberg she took the senior Trump's place at the leaders' table at least twice, but didn't speak.

Ivanka was primarily there to advocate the launch of the G20 Women Entrepreneurship Fund and the finance initiative behind it that would be providing the funding for the programme.

Middle East crisis: Gulf media predict more sanctions on Qatar
The Egyptian foreign minister went on to say that media outlets in Qatar were guilty of "glorifying terrorist activities". Egypt is part of a quartet of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia boycotting Qatar over alleged ties to terrorism.

Although the tweet was quickly deleted, it had already been seen and screenshotted by hundreds of furious G20 observers who accused the U.S. president of a dereliction of duty.

"If being complicit is wanting to...be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I'm complicit", she said.

A tweeted photo revealed the first daughter-a businesswoman who had no government experience before her father's January inauguration-seated among Chinese president Xi Jinping, British prime minister Theresa May, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German chancellor Angela Merkel.

Second Chinese Long March-5 mission fails
As well as Chang'e-5, the Long March 5 will launch the country's first independent interplanetary mission, to Mars , in 2020. The same rocket type had been expected to take China's latest lunar probe to the moon this year and return with samples.

First daughter Ivanka Trump filled her father's seat at a table of world leaders during a meeting at the G-20 Summit on Saturday when President Trump left the session to attend to another matter.

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. Her comments drew swift criticism because they made little sense coming from someone who has the US president's ear.

Are you furious to hear that Ivanka Trump sat in her father's place at the G-20 Summit in Germany? "It might be the only bad thing she has going, if you want to know the truth", he said.

Podcast: Paul George trade, free agency day one reaction
Several teams were mentioned as the potential landing spot for George , and the Cleveland Cavaliers were one of team. George played in 75 games for the Pacers last season, averaging 23.7 points per game.

A World Bank source told CNN in May that Ivanka Trump played an "instrumental" role advocating for the facility. During President Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia last May, Ivanka Trump spoke at a roundtable about women's rights and empowerment. "I think there are multiple ways to have your voice heard", Trump had said.
