First daughter Ivanka Trump moved up to the front row of global diplomacy Saturday, leading an effort to promote women entrepreneurs and then taking over President Trump’s seat at the G-20 summit.
As an unpaid adviser to her father, Ivanka Trump has championed women and family issues like paid leave, child care and a World Bank fund to promote women-owned small businesses in the developing world.
But as President Trump stepped away from the a G-20 session Saturday to meet with the president of Indonesia, Ivanka literally took his seat among world leaders, sitting between between Chinese President Xi Jinping and British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Ivanka Trump was caught at the head table by an aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who tweeted out a photo of the event. The aide later deleted the tweet, but not before it made the rounds on the Internet.
