The post Ivanka Trump Takes Her Father's Seat at G20 Summit appeared first on SIGNAL.

The White House has confirmed that Ivanka Trump sat in for the president at the world leaders' table during part of the session.

A photograph has emerged on social media showing Ms Trump sat next to Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese President Xi Jinping, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel also in the shot.

However, what was truly notable was the reaction of the world leaders around her when Trump took her father's place: there wasn't one. "Telling that pic of Ivanka at G-20 table was posted by Russian staff", CNN's Ana Navarro wrote on Twitter.

The White House said the topic under discussion related to Ivanka's advocacy role on a women's economic development initiative with the World Bank, according to.

While her title doesn't carry much official weight, she may have been the best person to take the president's seat at that moment.

Although not elected, confirmed, sworn-in, or even holding an official position within the United States government, Ivanka represented the USA at a G20 leaders session on African migration and health.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also came to Ivanka Trump's defense.

Ivanka, who ran an eponymous clothing and jewellery business before taking a formal job at the White House, has made women's issues one of her signature policy areas, and the G20 revealed the power she wields as a trusted confidante to the president.

The programme, which aims to start awarding loans before year end, will work with governments "to improve laws and regulations that are stifling women entrepreneurs" and push banks to free up funds for female-owned businesses. An initial grant financing of around United States dollars 200 million from G20 and non-G20 donors aims to leverage an additional USD 800 million in commercial as well as global financial institution funding. President Trump announced a $50 million USA commitment to the fund and praised his daughter's work on empowering women.

Earlier Saturday, Ivanka and President Trump spoke at a World Bank event for a fund supporting women entrepreneurs.

Trump then drew chuckles when he mused about whether he had made her life more hard by attracting controversy as a famous rhetorical swashbuckler.
