Ivanka Trump has attended the last two G-20 summits and said on Twitter that she was invited by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to participate in the Women’s Empowerment event.

“It is sad but not shocking that the haters choose to attack Ivanka Trump, a senior advisor to the President, when she is promoting U.S. efforts to empower women through strategic partnerships with world leaders. The G20 and ROK visits were substantive and historic. Thanks to President Trump’s leadership our country is more prosperous and secure,” Jessica Ditto, deputy White House communications director, said in a statement to The Hill.
