Krauthammer on Ivanka Sitting In on G20 Session: ‘We’re Not a Monarchy’

On Monday night’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer weighed in on the controversy surrounding Ivanka Trump sitting in for her father during a meeting at the G20 Summit and the Twitter exchange between President Trump and Chelsea Clinton.

“This is absurd,” Krauthammer reacted. “Look, I think you don’t do that. If you’re a republic and a democracy, you don’t put a daughter in the seat saying ‘United States of America.’ We’re not a monarchy.”

Despite the criticism, he said it was “no big deal” and then went on to slam the G20 Summit as a whole, calling it “preposterous.”

“In all the years that we’ve had them, for decades,” he elaborated, “has anything ever come out of a G20 that meant anything? The answer is ‘no.’ It was absurdly hyped and you end up with these absurd arguments over little things.”
