CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers has said Donald Trump doesn't realise his daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump "isn't that impressive to people".

Social network Care2 Wednesday created a petition to the world meteorological Association with a request to change the name of the hurricane that hit the coast of the United States and the Caribbean, with "Irma" with "Ivanka" in honor of the daughter of the President of the United States Donald trump.

It continues: "Ivanka Trump can say what she wants about climate change, but as long as she quietly stands back, she remains complicit in the destruction we all face at the hands of her father's administration".

While President Trump may "like that", Twitter most certainly did not, with several users taking to the platform to express their discomfort.

"Not weird at all", the comedian deadpanned after airing a clip from Trump's speech.

But wait. That's not actually what she said, according to the president.

He continued to gush about the blonde beauty, adding, "Look at Ivanka".

Kerley signed with the Lions as an unrestricted free agent in March 2016 but was traded to San Francisco five months later. He had signed a three-year extension with the 49ers, but they ultimately cut him over the weekend.

The incident allegedly threw the meeting off course, as Trump paid attention to his granddaughter, asking her to speak in Mandarin and praising her "good, smart genes".

"We asked Ivanka to briefly join the meeting for an update on the child care tax credit and how we are working to make tax reform a bipartisan issue", he said.

The President then encouraged his daughter to address the crowd.

"Thank you, honey", Trump added. "Come up, honey. Should I bring Ivanka up? 'Daddy, can I go with you?"

Along with stopping by at his meetings, Ms Trump has frequently accompanied her father to events.

"Well I don't think it is normal", Powers, a former Fox News contributor, said.

A senior state official said the Telangana government is in touch with the US Embassy and will reveal details about the programme in due course.
