Ivanka Trump sits in for President Trump at G-20 meeting

President Donald Trump is dismissing complaints about his daughter and White House aide Ivanka Trump filling his seat in a meeting with world leaders at the G20 summit on Saturday.

Donald, in a separate tweet, called the arrangement "very standard" and also noted that German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was hosting the G20 summit, agreed.

"If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother", he tweeted, "the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!"

He revisited the ongoing Russian Federation investigation by accusing James Comey, the FBI director Trump fired, of leaking classified information to the media - "that is so illegal!"

A photo on Twitter showed Ivanka Trump, 35, sitting in her father's seat between Chinese President Xi Jinping and British Prime Minister Theresa May. She quickly set Trump straight about appropriate political conduct for White House family members, which of course is that the commander in chief's kids have no business presiding in the president's stead.

G20 leaders are allowed to bring staff into the room and when government heads need to step out during some sessions, their places can be briefly taken by others.

Merkel, the host leader, said at a news conference that representation is up to individual nations.

Haley told Dickerson that Ivanka Trump has been "very well accepted nationally and internationally" and has focused on issues important to her like women entrepreneurship, poverty and starvation.

Her defenders said that Trump, who's navigating an uncharted territory for a first daughter, has been unfairly criticised and held to impossible standards. Were you giving our country away? "If she weren't my daughter it'd be so much easier for her. That might be the only bad thing she has going, if you want to know the truth". She actually stepped in for her dad during a meeting when he stepped out briefly, taking his seat at the leader's table-a tag-in that's usually done by a high-ranking state official. Veteran diplomats drew the opposite conclusion: former North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ambassador Nicholas Burns, who served as a diplomat under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, told the Washington Post the incident with Ivanka Trump was a breach of protocols for such summits.
