‘#UnwantedIvanka’ is trending in the wake of her awkward G-20 presence

Social media users are having a Photoshop party at the expense Ivanka Trump in the wake of her attendance at the G-20 summit in Japan this past weekend, where many accused her of awkwardly inserting herself into exchanges between world leaders.

Ivanka attended the G-20 alongside her father, and soon after, headlines and memes were poking fun at her for inserting herself into conversations that were taking place between world leaders. During the summit, a video was posted to French President Emanuel Macron‘s Instagram account showing Ivanka interjecting herself in conversation between Macron, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the director of the International Monetary Fund’s director, Christine Lagarde.

Using the hashtag #UnwantedIvanka, social media users began photoshopping Ivanka’s image into historic and iconic moments as a way to parody her G-20 attendance. The edited images showed her alongside the allied powers in WWII, alongside MLK at his “I Have a Dream” speech, among others.



In a statement to The Hill, White House deputy communications director Jessica Ditto said that all the mockery is “not surprising.”

“It is sad but not shocking that the haters choose to attack Ivanka Trump, a senior advisor to the President, when she is promoting U.S. efforts to empower women through strategic partnerships with world leaders,” the statement read. “The G20 and ROK visits were substantive and historic. Thanks to President Trump’s leadership our country is more prosperous and secure.”
