The officials claimed that while Mr. Trump attended other bilateral meetings, Ivanka had been sent for the meet on the subject of Africa, health, and migration.

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe was the first leader who met Donald Trump after he took the presidency but it was strange to see the presence of Trump's daughter Ivanka there.

Ivanka and her husband Jared were seen gracing the diplomatic meeting.

Ivanka was widely ridiculed when she told Fox and Friends that she attempts "to stay out of politics" and "leaves politics to others."

Critics found this comment a little strange, especially because it came from the President's daughter who is his advisor in the White House.

Seen at the G20, her previous statement contradicted her attendance with other world leaders.

Trump says life's hard for Ivanka because she's his daughter

While many believed that Ivanka was at the G20-summit because she was Trump's daughter, Trump didn't think so. He said Ivanka didn't have it easy just because she was his daughter.
