Photo of Ivanka Trump and Angela Merkel raises eyebrows


On Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel met with President Trump to discuss foreign relationships between Germany and the United States. Another Trump, as it turned out, was also present at the meetings.

Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump sat in on what Ivanka called a "robust discussion" about workforce development.

According to the Associated Press, Ivanka Trump recruited the American executives and guided the discussion. Her presence in the meeting among world leaders and CEOs drew some criticism.

Senior Analyst at Whitman Insight Strategies, Matt McDermott, expressed his concern on Twitter. "Imagine if Hillary Clinton met with Merkel and Chelsea Clinton was seated next to her for official meeting," he said. "You can't. It's unimaginable."

McDermott continued, "There is no earthly reason why Ivanka Trump belongs in a meeting with a foreign leader, let alone seated immediately beside them."

McDermott was not the only one to condemn Ivanka's involvement:

This is not the first time she has been involved with these meetings. Last month, Ivanka sat in on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's White House visit.
