What is Ivanka doing at this table anyway?

8 ( +10 / -2 )

Can somebody please explain what the hell his daughter is doing at that table? This buffoon needs reminding that he's not the King.

@plastic & Derek

Designated handler. Somebody’s got to do it.

Seated across a wide table flanked by top aides, 

Is Ivanka an aide? Or is she just there to negotiate for more Trump trademarks.

Nepotism and inside trading: hallmarks of the Trump era.

Why is Ivanka sitting at the “adult” table...?

And what is Ivanka's role in all of this? Outside the favorable patents she got from China.

Why is she there???

We have seen and heard this track before which led to NOWHERESVILL

What does National Security Advisor Bolton have to do with trade talks? Same with Ivanka Trump?

Nothing is back on track until agreements are made, sealed and delivered.

Xi is thinking of limiting the export of rare minerals which would cause a real headache for America.

Donny is a complete and utter moron that acts emotionally and erratically.

Trump just can't lose! MAGA.

Having Ivanka in that photo just shows all the more what a BOSS Trump is. He owns the G20.

Trump says relations with China are 'right back on track'......

Could this not be another tweet "o" daydream …...

Corrupt boss. He's probably got US taxpayers picking up all Ivanka's tabs while she's negotiating more sales for her and daddy's brands.

How much has Ivanka and Jared's wealth increased since daddy's been in the White House?

Trump is a corrupt businessman, an even more corrupt politician.

Did Trump bring his sons along on this trip to?

Trump just can't lose! MAGA.

Obamacare still there, lose. thanks McCain

NK still got nukes, firing missiles, lose

Iran enriching Uranium, lose

Trade wars are easy to win, lose

Lost the House to the Democrats, lose, thanks women's vote

etc etc etc

Dear Ivanka: feel free to join official government functions once you've been elected on your own ticket. America is not a monarchy, yet. Trump's "bring your kid to work day" approach to high-stakes international relations has got to stop.

We shouldn't be asking why Ivanka is there. The host Abe should be asking this question and to make a decision whether to allow her in on discussions and his decision should be written about in the press. If Abe doesn't do it, one of the other members should have. Respect for them would have trebled

Flushing America's reputation down the crapper. And don't imagine the question isn't on the mind of everyone in the room. See anyone else's daughter there?

There is no truce and any talks will go nowhere. Trusting trumps word is a waste of time and any treaty is a waste of paper.

The Chinese all look bemused, like they’re sitting across the table from a simpleton.

China don't be bluffed.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

That simpleton is rewriting an destructive trade deal with a country that has had the most predatory trade practices short of the British Empire. That no one here is aware of that or how it has resulted in deflation for Japan is beyond me.

Trump's opponents have figured him out and know fully well he has no teeth. This is an easy battle to win for them. A little too easy. Typical bullies behavior is they go after the weak but will coward if they get counterattacked. It is what it is.

Hang your head in shame, Donnie. Xi's got your number and you know it.
