Ivanka Trump, the advisor to US President Donald Trump, led the US contingent at the Summit themed 'Women First, Prosperity for All'.
While her visit is over, social media did what it does best and launched a ton of memes after she was photographed with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Amongst the several memes that emerged during the summit, one meme came from comedian José Covaco (@hoezaay) who gave a comical voice-over to an edited video of Ivanka Trump telling delegates that she's in India to get her Aadhaar card made.
Along with the video, Covaco wrote, "Breaking : Exclusive : Paid media will not show you this. Ivanka Trump actually came to India to get her Aadhaar Card done."

Needless to say, the funny video spread like wildfire on the Internet garnering nearly 2,000 retweets on the platform.
Given the virality of the video, the official Twitter handle of Unique Identification Authority of India (@UIDAI) took notice of Covaco's parody video tweet and said Ivanka Trump couldn't get her Aadhaar as she's not a resident of India.
But couldn't apply since she's not a resident of India.— Aadhaar (@UIDAI) December 1, 2017
UIDAI also responded to the queries.
However, this isn't the first time the UIDAI has displayed their sense of humour on the platform. As the country celebrated Dussehra, the government agency that issues Aadhaar cards shared a graphic showing 10 crossbows of good governance aimed at Raavan’s heads.
In a sarcastic reply, a Twitter user with the username #DestroytheAadhaar asked, "Sir how many Aadhaar can Ravan get? 10 faces * 10 iris pairs = 100 at least?"
In response, UIDAI wrote: “Not a resident of India. Not eligible to enroll for Aadhaar.”
