Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Ivanka Trump after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) criticized Trump’s presence at the G-20 summit.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out a video of Trump having a discussion with some world leaders and claimed that Trump did not belong there and she was only in that position because of her father President Trump.

“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification. It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”

The former press secretary stood up for Trump, pointing to the policy issues that the White House adviser has worked on. She also brought up the Amazon deal that Ocasio-Cortez fought against, saying she was “destroying jobs” while Trump was trying to build the economy.

As IJR Red reported, Trump has helped on many issues that have benefitted Americans. Republican National Committee (RNC) spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington also pushed back on the comment, saying that Trump has proven herself as a valuable asset for the Trump administration.

“Ivanka Trump is an accomplished businesswoman & working mom. She helped pass criminal justice reform & the Pledge to America’s Workers has secured job training for 9M Americans. It may be shocking to some, but a socialist bartender might not know how to keep this economy booming.”

The president and his daughter have been representing the U.S. at the G-20 summit with the elder Trump also making a successful trip to North Korea on Sunday.

WHAT IF Hillary had won and she took Chelsea and Mark to the G-20 Summit? WHAT IF, Chelsea posed next to her mother in the official photo of the G-20 LEADERS? Conservative media would have been apoplectic. It would have made the day Obama wore a tan suit appear to be a mild reaction.
