Merkel, a responsável pela organização da conferência, defende a presença de Ivanka a representar os EUA no G20, conforme aqui reportado. Parte final do artigo:
“Ivanka Trump was part and parcel of the American delegation, so that is something that other delegations also do. It’s very well known that she works at the White House and is also engaged in certain initiatives.”
A photo of the first daughter sitting beside British Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese President Xi Jinping surfaced on Twitter, drawing some criticism, including from aides to former President Barack Obama.
Cabinet officials typically replace the president at high-level sessions when a stand-in is needed. Ivanka serves as an unpaid adviser to her father in the White House.
“Ivanka was sitting in the back and then briefly joined the main table when the president had to step out,” a White House official said in response to the photo.
The topic at hand reportedly concerned one of Ivanka Trump’s projects, the World Bank finance initiative for women entrepreneurs.
Ou seja: 1) é habitual, 2) foi por breve período, 3) foi num assunto que ela conhece bem.
Curiosamente as críticas vieram de Obamistas, geralmente defensores da igualdade para as mulheres… até que a mulher elevada seja uma de direita.
