Another video of Ivanka Trump talking with British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde at the G-20 also went viral over the weekend, says the paper.

Washington Post believes the presence of Ivanka at the G-20 summit and at the DMZ is not accidental but a sign of her influence with President Trump and the current absence of influential opponents within the administration.

Trump’s daughter shut down her clothing after joining her father in the administration where she and her husband, senior White House adviser Jared Kushner would remain indefinitely.
