Internet cringes as Ivanka Trump tries to include herself in G20 conversation with Theresa May, Justin Trudeau

The internet is collectively cringing at a video of Ivanka Trump trying to include herself in a discussion between world leaders at the G20 summit.

The 37-year-old accompanied her father, US President Donald Trump, to the Osaka event despite having no diplomatic experience. 

The Élysée Palace, official residence of the French President, released a short Snapchat video taken at the summit.

Trump can be seen standing with a group of people including UK Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron and International Monetary Fund CEO Christine Lagarde.

The footage shows her nodding and gesturing enthusiastically while trying to break into what seems to be a solemn political discussion.

Macron says something about "social justice", to which Trump says "it's on". May can then be heard saying: "As soon as you start talking about the economic aspect of it though, a lot of people start listening who wouldn’t otherwise listen."

Trump chimes in eagerly, saying: "And the same with the defence side I think, in terms of the whole sort of… being very male-dominated."

Her comment earned her a brief scornful glance from Lagarde, who then returns to avoiding eye contact with Trump. Trudeau can be seen briefly in the clip looking down in discomfort at Trump's apparent intrusion.

Her father's political opponents have derided the video and her presence at the summit, including New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification," she said, adding that the President should have brought a qualified diplomat with him rather than his child. 

Others on Twitter were quick to turn the moment into a meme poking fun at the former fashion designer's attempt to integrate herself with career politicians on the world stage. 

This was not Trump's first G20: in 2017 she also attracted criticism for taking her father's seat at a session about migration and health.

She's claimed she "tries to stay out of politics", but Trump holds an official (yet unpaid) position as an adviser in her father's administration, alongside her husband Jared Kushner. Their involvement in the White House (and Kushner's resulting security clearance) has been a subject of controversy since the inauguration, with many calling it unethical and a clear example of nepotism as neither are qualified for their roles. 

The day after this year's summit, both father and daughter travelled to South Korea before stepping through the Demilitarised Zone and into North Korea - the first time a sitting US President has entered the reclusive nation's territory.
