“(CNN) President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday morning to defend his daughter Ivanka, who faced criticism this weekend as she briefly took his seat at the Group of 20 Summit.
“When I left Conference Room for short meetings with Japan and other countries, I asked Ivanka to hold seat. Very standard. Angela M agrees!” he tweeted.
“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!” he added.
Clinton quickly responded on Twitter: “Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.”
Ivanka Trump has not yet commented about the incident.
When Ivanka Trump sat in on behalf of her father during a working session on Saturday morning in Hamburg, Germany, her presence caused a stir among Trump critics on social media.
A photo of the first daughter sitting next to Chinese President Xi Jinping, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel was first tweeted by Svetlana Lukash, who identifies herself on Twitter as a G20 Russian sherpa, a title given to people who help international delegations at large summits. The tweet has since been deleted.”
