Ivanka Trump sits in for dad Donald at G20 leaders meeting”

Ms Trump is an adviser to her father, but a leader's absence is usually covered by high-ranking officials.

The first daughter, who serves as an official unpaid advisor to the president, has also participated in other events at the summit. She came under scrutiny for being present at a meeting, at which reporters were not allowed, between Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in November past year.

He returned after a short while to take his seat.

Ivanka has her share of challenges contending with her father and he knows it.

Though one of her projects is has been launched during the summit in Hamburg, Germany.

"Thank you World Bank President Jim Yong Kim for your ongoing leadership in support of women's economic empowerment and for joining me today in a meaningful discussion with Saudi Arabian women entrepreneurs and elected officials", Ivanka Trump posted on Facebook following a discussion on the President's first foreign trip. But during the president's first two trips overseas, she's taken on a far more prominent role.

A Russian official tweeted a photograph of Ivanka Trump sitting in between the duo and it immediately went viral.

Earlier in the day, Trump committed the U.S.to contributing $50 million to the new World Bank Group Facility for Women Entrepreneurship.

According to a Twitter user, Ivanka, who accompanied the President on the second day of the G-20 summit at a session about Africa, Migration and Health, later replaced him as the leader left for bilateral meetings.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was caught on cameras giving Ivanka Trump a serious side-eye during an event in the German capital, Berlin on March 18, 2017.

But Michael McFaul, the United States ambassador to Russian Federation under President Barack Obama, said Ivanka Trump subbing in was unusual. Nordstrom shares sunk after President Trump tweeted that the department store chain had treated his daughter "so unfairly" when it announced last week that it would stop selling Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessory line. Champion, she's a champion, ' he said.

"Ivanka was sitting in the back and then briefly joined the main table when the president had to step out", the White House said in response to the photo.
