US President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been under the scanner for tagging along with her father to the G20 Summit at Osaka, Japan despite having almost no experience in diplomacy.
In various videos that have emerged of the Summit, Ivanka can be seen hobnobbing with the biggies at the event and even partaking in conversations with world leaders. She also participated in a summit on women's rights and empowerment.
Although Ivanka has been praised for her advocacy of women's rights, she has been criticised and trolled incessantly on social media for taking part in an event although she has no prior experience.
In a video that has now gone viral on Twitter, Ivanka can be seen trying to take part in a conversation between May, Christine Lagarde (head of IMF), Canadian President Justin Thrudeau and Emmanuel Macron. The four can be seen actively taking part in a discussion. However, it is comical to see Ivanka trying to wedge in and offer her opinions, especially since the others seem to disregard her completely.

It's actually sad to see her trying so desperately, only to fail miserably.
Their faces when she interrupts! Priceless.— Panzram 31614 (@SummerStacey3) June 29, 2019
She's like a little kid who's trying to get on the adult table at the Thanksgiving dinner😁— Juha Keskinen (@MacFinn44) June 29, 2019
Lagarde's expression says it all. "Why are you here and why are you talking"— Portia McGonagal of Winterfell (@PortiaMcGonagal) June 29, 2019
She has no place there! This is so ridiculous. Nothing qualifies her to stand amongst world leaders and way in on any subject.— Eliza Bennet (@ElizaBe30319693) June 29, 2019

Their body language is incredible. Clearly marginalizing Ivanka. Backs turned, no eye contact.— Nicholas Santilli (@nrsantilli) June 29, 2019
I can’t watch this it’s too awkward please tell me what happens at the end— SRA (@saraobviously) June 30, 2019
The G20 Summit may have seen world leaders meeting under one roof, but it hasn't been without its share of awkward situations!
