Twitter users Photoshop Ivanka Trump into historic scenes

The First Daughter and White House advisor received criticism for her involvement in the G20 Summit, despite her lack of status as an elected official or member of the president's cabinet.

Others had more fun with the meme, putting her with the Scooby Gang - the cartoon series about a dog and his friends who solve mysteries - and on the moon with Neil Armstrong.

But her time in the global spotlight made her subject to criticism back home.

Her tweet came in response to a video released by the French Presidential Palace in which Ivanka conversed with several world leaders such as British prime minister Theresa May, French president Emmanuel Macron, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, and International Monetary Fund (IMF) head Christine Lagarde. The exchange was awkward-seeming (though not almost as awkward as the Brazilian president denying a handshake to Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau), and immediately set off the Left, eager to criticize the First Daughter for taking up a spot they believe might have been better left to some other aide.

Ocasio-Cortez argued that "being someone's daughter actually isn't a career qualification" and that Trump should have brought a "qualified diplomat" to the worldwide gathering.

'It may be shocking to some, but being someone's daughter actually isn't a career qualification, ' Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

Now the a woman that you see that kind of, uh, looks at Ivanka like, why the hell are you here then Kind of, you know, does a little number and looks over this way.

"...being very male dominated", she says, nodding.

The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

He became the first sitting U.S. president to walk into North Korea, meeting briefly with dictator Kim Jong-un.

California representative Ted Lieu also questioned why Ms Trump was at the Summit, and revealed that she had blocked him on Twitter. The border line runs inside the building.

It's not really clear why Trump's daughter needed to be at this gathering.

Ivanka purportedly promotes female empowerment - including in her book entitled Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success.

Ivanka Trump doesn't understand them. She just kind of shows up and takes a seat at the table, and that's happening here in the United States, and that's bad enough.

The pair approached the stage with Marine One in the background. 'Mike - Beauty and the beast, Mike, ' he quipped.

"You are insulting the capacities and potential of virtually every working person in America". The US needs our President working the G20.
