Ivanka Trump addresses world leaders during G20 Summit

Ivanka Trump delivered a speech on women’s empowerment at the G20 Summit in Osaka on Saturday, in front of Japan’s President Shinzo, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands and her proud dad Donald. 

‘We believe that women’s inclusion in the economy is not solely a social justice issue, which of course it is. It’s also smart economic and defense policy,’ said glamorous Ivanka, President Trump’s eldest daughter and adviser. 

‘We must continue to prioritize women’s economic empowerment and place it at the very heart of the G-20 agenda,’ she added, watched on by her father, as well as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and outgoing British PM Theresa May.

Ivanka, 37, said that if women participated in labor markets on an equal footing to men, global annual gross domestic product could rise between $12 trillion and $28 trillion by 2025. 

Adding that research shows that states with a higher proportion of female participation are less likely to use violence or military force to resolve international disputes.

‘This is a legacy worth fighting for and a future we can be proud to leave to our children,’ she continued.

Meanwhile, Trump will be heading to Seoul immediately after the G20 summit in Osaka, where he held a highly anticipated meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a bid to ease trade tensions between the world’s top two economies.

The DMZ, where Trump has offered to meet with the North’s Kim, is the finishing line of the 1950-53 Korean War, where South Korean forces backed by a US-led UN coalition fought to a standstill with North Korean and Chinese troops.

‘Now that he has been publicly called out — with letters and a personal connection serving as the basis of a fragile detente — I would bet Kim will travel to the DMZ to meet Trump,’ said Harry J. Kazianis, Director of Korean Studies at the Center for the National Interest.

The president said negotiations with China are ‘back on track’ after an ‘excellent’ meeting with Xi Jinping, who warned him of the risks posed by ‘confrontation.’

‘We had a very good meeting with President Xi of China. Excellent, I would say excellent,’ Trump told reporters Saturday in Osaka during a separate meeting with Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

‘As good as it was going to be. We discussed a lot of things and we’re right back on track. And we’ll see what happens but we had a really good meeting,’ Trump said.

‘I would say probably even better than I expected and the negotiations are continuing,’ Trump added, continuing his upbeat tone.

Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered an admonition to President Donald Trump as the two sat down for high-stakes talks in Osaka, telling his counterpart that ‘cooperation’ was better than ‘confrontation.’

‘Cooperation and dialogue are better than friction and confrontation,’ the Chinese leader said at the top of a bilateral meeting Saturday in Osaka, acknowledging the escalating tit-for-tat on trade that has rattled financial markets.

‘China [and] United States both benefit from cooperation and lose in a conformation,’ Xi told him.

The Chinese leader opened his carefully scripted comments by bringing up the ‘Ping Pong Diplomacy’ of 1971 that helped open the door to the historic reestablishment of U.S.-Chinese relations in 1979.
