Trump redirects Ivanka Trump G-20 criticism at Chelsea Clinton

After Ivanka Trump faced heat for briefly stepping in for her father at the G-20 summit on Saturday, President Trump has redirected criticism of her at former first daughter Chelsea Clinton.

"When I left Conference Room for short meetings with Japan and other countries, I asked Ivanka to hold seat," Trump tweeted. "Very standard. Angela M agrees!"

Trump continued, though, pivoting to an alternate fictional narrative where former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would have done the same.

"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!"

According to reports of the Saturday occurrence in Hamburg, Ivanka sat in while her father attended a meeting with another world leader.

Chelsea Clinton was quick respond via Twitter, saying her parents would have "never" thought to ask her to sit in at such event.

As Abby Phillips of the Washington Post notes, "The moment, captured in a pixelated photo by a member of Russia's delegation, seemed to perfectly capture the scope of the first daughter's expansive influence in Trump's administration."
