´Who voted for her?´ Now Ivanka Trump takes
over for her dad and sits in his place
at the G20 – and the president´s
critics are hopping mad

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko and Wires

Original Article

e-mail 52 View comments Ivanka Trump turned heads on Saturday at the G20 summit by temporarily taking a seat at the big-kids´ table when her father, President Donald Trump, stepped out for a bilateral meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo. A White House official told DailyMail.com that the younger Trump´s fill-in role was nothing out of the ordinary. UK Prime Minister Theresa May was seen leaving the G20 meeting room at one point, a source with knowledge of the summit´s goings-on said, and her place was briefly taken by an aide. But when the 35-year-old former fashion executive sat at the table with Xi Jinping, Recep

The President´s critics are butt-hurt little snowflakes who are always hopping mad about something. Who cares?

I am not particularly a fan of Ivanka and Jared and have posted several times that their influence should be in private, not in any public or WH position. Nepotism - or even the appearance of it - has no place in American politics. That includes the Trump Administration.

That said: the critics will howl at anything - even this "nothingburger". What, pray tell, did Ivanka "negotiate" with President Xi?

Screw the critics.

I personally think he´s going too far with this. She is NOT qualified (in my opinion) to sit with world leaders in his place as leader of the free world!

She´s pretty, skinny, sweet, adorable, a good executive (in the fashion industry - hardly world affairs) and smart...maybe brilliant!
But there are plenty of top notch aides, generals & others more qualified to sit with the "big" guys. Kind of insulting to them I would imagine.

Yawn, she speaks Mandarin (or tries). I consider this a brief commercial break with Xi while PT negotiates a deal to keep Obozo on one of Indonesia´s islands.

Theresa May can leave an aide in her seat, but the critics (Charles Blow?) can go postal about Ivanka.

Look at the names of those pitching this fit. No one I’d want to jump into a pool with.

The topic of the moment was something she is involved with. Somewhat different from plunking an aide down to keep track as May did.

FTA:

The official said that when Ivanka stepped up, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim had begun to talk about ´areas such as African development – areas that will benefit from the facility just announced by the World Bank.´

That facility, a women´s entrepreneurship empowerment fund, was spearheaded by Ivanka and has grown to $300 million with the help of a $50 million U.S. donation.


She’d been in the room as a spectator.

Can anyone tell me how long the President was away, with her in his place? (crickets)

I misspoke. Ivanka was in the room as part of his delegation. From another article about this brief occurrence:

At a news conference later, Merkel - the host leader of the G-20 in Hamburg - said it’s up to the individual nations who represents them. "The delegations themselves decide, should the president not be present for a meeting, who will then take over and sit in the chair," Merkel said. "Ivanka Trump was part and parcel of the American delegation so that is something that other delegations also do. It’s very well known that she works at the White House and is also engaged in certain initiatives.”

Ivanka Trump Kushner understands her father better than anyone else he could ask to take his seat so she would be the most trustworthy individual to comprehend the goings-on and fully communicate them to her father. Nepotism be darned in some situations and this is one of them. President Trump is contending with serious leaks damaging his reputation, agenda, efforts, and national security; at the same time, he is being backstabbed by individuals in Congress and the mainstream media all hellbent in destroying him at any cost. He trusts Ivanka.

These so-called "world leaders" are all for the fraud and scam call the Paris Accord, for open borders, man made global warming or man made climate change. little to no military spending for self defense and all the other leftist/progressive drivel. I couldn´t care if President Trump sent his dog to sit in his place that´s how little respect I have for these "world leaders" who all fawned over obama!

Excuse additional post, but this has to burn up those who have gone public with their critical remarks. Like that great patriot Charles Blow.

The BBC confirmed that Ivanka did, in fact, take her father´s seat briefly while he met with the Indonesian leader — and while it was noted that a high-ranking official would be a more traditional choice, it appeared that Ivanka simply sat and listened during her time at the main table.
If the reactions of other world leaders attending G-20 are any indication, however, they appear to have already accepted Ivanka as one of their own.

Has anyone actually ever watched her interviewed? She is very charming and very sensible and down to earth. When PT was running I watched about 6 late night interviews with her that spanned over a decade and I was very impressed.
I think most people have never bothered to even listen to her speak.

I know Ivanka is on the NYC liberal side, but I would say she knows more about economics and how the real world operates than the rest of the leaders there combined. Especially Germany and France.

If they want to get mad, how about aiming the fury at those who actually caused this. The GOPE leadership in congress. She wasn´t officially hired as staff until Lyin´ Ryan tried to put one over on Trump and publicly humiliate him.

Trump is entitled to have people he can trust around him. He has mentored his daughter her entire life. The apple didn´t fall far from the tree with her.

Only one person in the US delegation was elected, the President, all the others have been appointed by the President. Since the President can´t be in two places at the same time, he was attending a bilateral meeting, the President apparently designated Ivanka to substitute for him at the general G-20 meeting. Ivanka is a high level presidential aide appointed by President. Selecting Ivanka was the President´s call. End of story.

on the other hand, Chelsea Clinton facilitated at Camp David in 2000 during her father´s effort to effect a peace deal between Israel and the PLO

and it is also easy to forget that Carville-Greenberg meddled in an election in Israel

and even though Carville-Greenberg helped get Ehud Barak elected, in the hopes of having someone more malleable than Netanyahu, all
their conniving and chicanery did not pan
out . . .

and EVEN with Chelsea facilitating, Ehud Barak did not go for the peace deal nor did
Yasser Arafat

if they had more time, maybe they could have meddled in the PLO elections

I think Trump is correct in saying it would be so much easier for Ivanka if she wasn´t his daughter. She was and is a savvy professional business woman articulate and financially secure. Everything she does or says now is criticized. They aren´t allowed to make business business deals. Trump gave up a lot to be our President and We should be grateful.

Having said that, paid maternity leave is not as important as giving the disabled and elderly a living wage on SS to make up for the years Obola saw to it we got nothing. Why are We giving $50 million dollars if it does not include women in the US?

SEOUL - Amid concern that North Korea might conduct another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, tension is running high on the Korean Peninsula, with experts warning that Pyongyang may be preparing to launch an upgraded version of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM). Citing a United States defence official, CNN reported on Thursday (July 27) that the North conducted a missile ejection test on Tuesday at a naval shipyard in Sinpo, South Hamkyong Province, where North Korea is thought to have repositioned submarines and barges used for an SLBM test in August last year. The lift-off was designed to test the "cold-launch" system,

THE US House of Representatives has approved legislation to provide £1.2billion ($1.6billion) down payment to start building a wall on along the Mexican border. The border wall, one of Mr Trump´s key pledges during his election campaign, has caused huge controversy. Despite claiming the wall would cost around £9.6billion ($12billion) during his victorious election campaign, a report has estimated it is set to cost up to £17.3billion ($21.6billion). The bill passed 235-192 in the House, with most of the votes along party lines. It comes as the House of Representatives approved a £52billlion ($68billion) military build up next year.

President Trump scolded a female reporter who asked him about his three tweet announcement this morning to ban transgender servicemembers. ´She´s very rude,´ Trump said, as he entertained more than 100 American Legion boys and Auxiliary girls at an afternoon White House Rose Garden event. Trump blindsided his Pentagon Wednesday morning when he announced the policy change, with the White House saying later that he had made the decision yesterday. At Wednesday´s press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said upon Trump´s decision, Secretary of Defense James Mattis was immediately informed, along with the rest of the president´s national security team.

A warehouse full of homemade explosives set to be used in terrror attacks by ISIS in northern Iraq has been destroyed in an RAF operation. In the past week, British air force pilots have also wiped out dozens of jihadists in Iraq and Syria, with sniper posts and terrorist positions targeted in strikes in Raqqa, the capital of ISIS´s ´caliphate´. The warehouse was struck after intelligence officers identified the bomb factory near Hawijah in the Kirkuk province of Iraq last Wednesday. The RAF has said that ´large quantities´ of explosives were being stored by the jihadist group, which earlier this month lost

A former member of an IRA splinter group went on trial Wednesday in Germany, 21 years after he allegedly tried to hit a British base there with mortar shells. The Belfast-born man, 48, identified by Irish media as James Corry, was arrested in December at Frankfurt Airport after his extradition by Irish authorities. He is accused of carrying out the attack in 1996 and was placed on the international wanted list in 2004 by the German authorities. In spite of this, it has taken 13 years for Corry to finally be put on trial, drawing widespread criticism for the delay.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) today warned President Trump against firing either Attorney General Jeff Sessions or special counsel Robert Mueller, saying he plans to introduce bipartisan judicial review legislation to protect the former FBI director and future special counsels.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

Senator John McCain fired away at Donald Trump´s decision to ban transgender people from military service – and also for announcing a 180 degree turn on a complex issue via Twitter. The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement that the military should welcome capable people ´regardless of their gender identity.´ He made the statement hours after his own dramatic return to the Senate for an Obamacare repeal vote, after getting a brain cancer diagnosis. Trump praised the former Vietnam POW for his action, although he went after McCain´s time as a POW during the campaign.
