President Trump locks horn with Chelsea Clinton

The decision of President Donald Trump to seat his daughter Ivanka at the G20 summit, a world leaders summit have sparked online condemnation.

The president might have drawn the younger Clinton’s blood when he tweeted that if Hillary had made same choice,  yhe media would have headlined CHELSEA FOR PRESIDENT! 

Ivanka had taken her father’s seat while he was meeting with the Indonesian president. She sat between Chinese President and the British Prime Minister at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. 

Although Chelsea and Ivanka are said to be very good friends despite their parents political differences, she didn’t hesitate to fire back at the president.

She said it would never have occured to any of her parents to ask her to hold a seat at a high profile meeting.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House spokesperson said Mr President’s tweet isn’t an attack on the Clintons. She inferred that thr people should be proud of Ivanka, had it not been her last name,she ought to be celebrated.
