Ocasio-Cortez Goes After Ivanka Trump: ‘She’s Not A Qualified Diplomat’

Ivanka Trump may be a presidential adviser to her dad Donald, but that didn't matter to world leaders as she tried to inject herself into a serious conversation at the G20 summit and got widely ignored.

The French government on Saturday released a brief clip of a discussion at the G20 summit in Osaka involving four world leaders - and Ivanka Trump.

In footage posted on Instagram by the French presidential palace, President Donald Trump's daughter can be seen speaking to French President Emmanuel Macron, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British PM Theresa May and International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde at the event in Osaka.

In the video released by the Elysée Palace, Macron can be heard to make a point about "social justice", to which Trump, standing to his right, says either "it's on" or "it's all".

Another wrote: "I think that says more about Lagarde than it does about Ivanka".

That left slim pickings for Yesterday , which had mixed reviews and had to make do with $17 million on its Stateside launch. Gary Dauberman wrote and directed " Annabelle Comes Home ", which stars Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Mckenna Grace.

One user even noted that the body language clearly "marginalises" the USA president's daughter. The blatant nepotism that allows Trump's awful progeny to represent our interests overseas is embarrassing and damaging to our already weakened global standing.

But Ivanka Trump quickly butts in to offer her opinion, awkwardly trying to join the conversation by referencing "male-dominated" nature of defence. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed British journalist Piers Morgan after he mocked the her former job bartending while defending Ivanka Trump for traveling to the G-20 summit.

"It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on", she continued. "Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn't hurt either", the NY congresswoman posted resolutely.

After the G20 in Japan, during which Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner attended talks with China about trade, the Trumps proceeded to South Korea.
