A short 19-second video clip of Ivanka Trump went viral on social media yesterday.
It showed her at the G-20 summit, standing in a group with French PresidentMacron, outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde.
The reason it went viral is that people presumed from the footage – released by Macron’s office – it humiliated Ivanka in some way.
The clip, which is not entirely clear in either sound quality or meaning, begins with Macron making a point about social issues.
‘It’s on..’ says Ivanka.
May then responds to Macron by saying: ‘As soon as you talk about the social aspect of it though, a lot of people start listening who wouldn’t otherwise listen.’
To which Ivanka interjects: ‘It’s the same with the defense side, in terms of the whole ecosystem, it’s been very male-dominated..’
