Ivanka Trump Just Had The Most Cringeworthy Interaction With World Leaders At The G-20 Summit

Seems like it runs in the family.

During last week's G-20 Summit in Japan, a conversation between several world leaders was interrupted by the presence of Ivanka Trump.

A video was posted to French President Emmanuel Macron's Instagram page that documented the encounter, which quickly went viral. The cringeworthy interjection interrupted a conversation between Macron, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and International Monetary Fund director Christine Lagarde.

All seemed to be uncomfortable with the presence of the first daughter, particularly Lagarde.

BBC journalist Parham Ghobadi reposted the video to his own Twitter page, which quickly took social media by storm. Many took note of the awkwardness, which mostly consisted of Trump attempting to stay in the conversation as May addresses the group.

She can be seen nodding and responding as May speaks, much to Lagarde's obvious dismay.

Among those who commented were Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, having some words to say about the nepotism that got Trump to where she is today.

AOC stated:

"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 and the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20."
"Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn't hurt either."

Many Twitter users had similar feelings on the situation.

Regardless of what Trump said, the other leaders made it pretty clear that they did not want her there. Many have shared the sentiment that she just didn't read the room before making a thoughtless comment.

Sounds like someone else we know...
