Donald Trump has defended a decision to have his daughter briefly sit in for him at a table with world leaders at an international summit.
A Russian delegate tweeted a photo of Ivanka Trump in her father’s seat at the Group of 20 summits in Hamburg, Germany, Saturday, sparking criticism from those who felt the move was inappropriate.
But German Chancellor Angela Merkel brushed it off, saying it was perfectly normal.
Trump tweeted Monday: “When I left Conference Room for short meetings with Japan and other countries, I asked Ivanka to hold seat. Very standard. Angela M agrees!”
Soon afterward, he argued: “If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!”
Donald Trump Jr also came under fire this weekend, for agreeing to meet with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the 2016 campaign after being promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
