Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Ivanka Trump for interactions with foreign leaders

Trump talks about trade war between the United States and China at the G20 summit

Rep. New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Ivanka Trump at the weekend for attending meetings with foreign leaders, as she has no foreign policy background. And former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders stepped in to defend President Trump's legacy.

Ivanka Trump, a top aid for his father, not only followed Mr. Trump to the G20 but attended meetings with foreign leaders. Ocasio-Cortez, who responded to a video posted on Twitter, seemed to show the Trump daughter trying to jump into a conversation with outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

"It may be shocking to some, but being a person's daughter is not actually a career qualification," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted . "It hurts our diplomatic standing when the president speaks it in and the world goes on. The United States needs our president who works G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat cannot hurt either."

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, whose last day of administration was Friday came to the defense of the Trump Presidency and Ivanka Trump.

"It is called in @ AOC wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY," Sanders tweeted . " @ realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continues to make the United States stronger worldwide, but thank you for reminding the Americans every day why they chose Trump." [19659004] Mr. Trump has also claimed that his daughter has created millions of jobs, even though there is no evidence of it.

Mr. Trump returned Sunday evening from his trip to Asia, where he became the first president to enter North Korean territory. He met with the North Korean strong man Kim Jong Un for 50 minutes, although the details of that meeting have not yet been released.

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner also set foot on North Korean soil.
