Ivanka Trump, the president's oldest daughter and a White House adviser, was seen sitting in for her father during a Group of 20 meeting Saturday in Hamburg, Germany while the president reportedly switched over to a bilateral meeting.

The unelected daughter of the USA president, who has an official but unpaid White House role, attended a working session in place of Trump earlier today. CNN News reported that an aide to the president or dignitary usually steps in and takes a seat when one of the world leaders need to leave the room for various reasons.

'I'm very proud of my daughter, Ivanka - always have been, from day one, ' the president said. The White House gender pay gap has tripled since Trump took office, but I guess that's just one of those issues - like climate change and all the other bad things that you hate - that Ivanka disagrees with her father on.

It's not clear exactly why Trump left the meeting, nor how long he was away.

The meeting she sat in on was about African migration and health and featured the president of the World Bank. She noted that "Ivanka Trump belonged to the American delegation, so that is in line with what other delegations do". But the United States president's daughter spent part of her weekend sitting around a table with the Chinese, Russian and Turkish presidents, the German chancellor and the British prime minister. He also mentioned that he doesn't make her life easy.
