Criticism of Ivanka Trump to Join the Discussion with World Leaders G20 Summit
No positive word seems to be for Trump’s daughter, Ivanka. She went with her father to the G20 summit in Japan and tried to talk to world leaders Emmanuel Macron, Theresa May, Justin Trudeau and Christine Lagarde. A video of the incident caused a lot of fuss on Twitter.
The video shared on the French President’s Instagram account shows how Ivanka Trump gets involved in a conversation between French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau and Christine Lagarde, Head of the International Monetary Fund. She responds to a Macron statement, after which May speaks out.
What exactly was discussed is hard to understand. But only the way Trump gets involved in the conversation is enough for a sea of criticism on Twitter. Many wondered why Ivanka was even present at the top.
Others talk about substitute shame and say they see the irritation in Lagarde’s eyes. Marion writes on Twitter:,, I am so ashamed of Ivanka Trump. It is just painful to see. “
Ivanka Trump is not the only one who received criticism after her performance at the G20 summit. Queen Máxima also blundered, according to many.
She met with the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and talked to him about helping women to set up businesses. The murder of Saudi journalist Khashoggi in October last year was not discussed.
How can you, as a queen, sit down with a prime suspect who has blood on his hands, according to a UN report? She works for the UN herself. I am speechless”, says diplomat expert Robert van de Roer.
Agnes Callamard, the UN rapporteur investigating the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, even accuses Máxima of complicity by not discussing the case with the prince.
