Osaka, June 30: Ivanka Trump, US President Donald Trump's daughter and senior White House adviser, was trolled on social media after a video of her trying to get involved in a discussion among world leaders went viral.

Lagarde's expression says it all. "Why are you here and why are you talking"

She has no place there! This is so ridiculous. Nothing qualifies her to stand amongst world leaders and way in on any subject.

It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.
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. https://t.co/KCZMXJ8FD9
