When Ivanka Trump tweeted a photo of herself arriving in Germany for the G-20 Summit, many people were confused.

In a move that has rankled numerous Trump administration's critics, the president's daughter sat between British Prime Minister Theresa May and Chinese President Xi Jinping during her father's temporary absence from a working session of world leaders titled "Partnership with Africa, Migration and Health". Her defenders said that Trump, who's navigating an uncharted territory for a first daughter, has been unfairly criticized and held to impossible standards.
