Ocasio-Cortez Rips Trump For Bringing Ivanka To G20 After Video Shows Her Chatting With World Leaders




Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ripped into President Trump for bringing his daughter Ivanka Trump to the Group of 20 (G-20) Summit in Japan after a viral video showed her joining a conversation with world leaders.

“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday following this year’s summit in Japan. “It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on.”

“The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either,” she added.



Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks in response to a video released by the French presidential palace that shows Ivanka joining a discussion involving French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May and International Monetary Fund Chairwoman Christine Lagarde.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) tweeted on Sunday: “I would like to hear Ivanka Trump’s explanation about this video. Oh wait, Senior White House Advisor @IvankaTrump blocked me. Can you forward the below video to her and ask for her response? Thanks. P.S. Can you also ask her why Jared Kushner still has a security clearance? ”
