Donald Trump decided to take some time off his presidential duties and let his daughter Ivanka Trump take over. Trump sent Ivanka to sit in for him at the Group of 20 meeting in Hamburg, Germany.
Ivanka took Trump’s spot seating among other world leaders. This wasn’t very pleasing to see. In fact, many were ticked off by it, including Twitter users.
In response to Trump’s ridiculous idea of putting his inexperienced daughter in his place, Twitter users bashed on the President and Ivanka.

Ivanka fills in for her dad beside Xi Jinping. To me, it feels banana-republicky for the US to be represented by an inexperienced daughter. https://t.co/lDDlyCeFp9

Having Princess Ivanka represent US at G20 table a slap in face to other G20 leaders, other top admin officials, American people. Grotesque.

I understand Ivanka Trump is sitting at the #G20 leaders table this morning instead of US President Donald Trump.

After all the criticism Trump drew for sending his daughter to the meeting, he decided to throw her a pity party.
“If she weren’t my daughter it would be so much easier for her,” Trump claimed. “It might be the only bad thing she has going if you want to know the truth.”
