Ocasio-Cortez: Ivanka Trump is not a 'qualified diplomat'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., sharply criticized the White House on Saturday night after video emerged of an awkward Ivanka Trump moment at the G20 summit.

“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote, saying the situation hurt the U.S. diplomatic standing in the world.

“The US needs our president working the G20,” she added. “Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”

Ocasio-Cortez was reacting to the viral video, posted by BBC journalist Parham Ghobadi, which he described as Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to President Trump, trying to “get involved” in a conversation with several world leaders: French President Emmanuel Macron, United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and International Monetary Fund Chairwoman Christine Lagarde.

The encounter drew widespread mockery online.

President Trump himself also attended the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, before heading to South Korea. He then met and held a photo-op with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un at the DMZ.

Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star and freshman lawmaker, has generated endless headlines with tweets calling out both her critics and President Trump’s administration.

She has previously called out the first daughter and real estate heiress for criticizing the idea of a guaranteed job.
