According to an exclusive report by AFP, in the meeting with Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, which was held at the mogul’s Trump Plaza residence, Ivanka, who is a model-turned-business executive, was seen seated as the group conversed in the opulent reception room.
Trump's daughter, Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner were present for Donald Trump's meeting with
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who attended the meeting only with an interpreter
“We were able to have a very candid talk over a substantial amount of time. We held it in a very warm atmosphere. Without confidence between the two nations, our alliance would never function in the future,” he said.
The presence of Ivanka in the meeting in a black-and-white dress and high heels, drew attention in protocol-conscious Japan, particularly after the tabloid press reported Trump planned to appoint her as US ambassador to Tokyo.
Also speaking to correspondents, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, a professor at the University of Niigata Prefecture, said:“It’s quite unusual to see a family member attending the first encounter between two leaders even if it’s informal.
Shortly after the meeting, a Tokyo Sports newspaper carried an article headlined “Trump daughter-blonde beauty Ms Ivanka the next ambassador to Japan!?” on its website last Saturday.
The publication cited unidentified overseas media as having reported before the vote that Trump had secret plans to appoint her ambassador, replacing current envoy Caroline Kennedy who is the daughter of assassinated US president John F. Kennedy.
“I don’t think the possibility that Ivanka would be an ambassador to Japan is zero, but it’s too early to say,” said Yamamoto.
