Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter and personal adviser, retweeted a photo of herself with British foreign secretary Boris Johnson Tuesday that sparked some spirited discussion on Twitter:
I had a fantastic afternoon in the White House yesterday, seeing the real spectrum of UK-US cooperation & discussing everything from the Syria crisis to the need for global women's empowerment with @VP Pence, @IvankaTrump and Jared Kushner pic.twitter.com/rpRomS5Rmc

The image on the right was the one that received much of the attention online. The hair… the maroon necktie… the thumbs-up… all looked very much like Johnson was revealing his inner Trump to the world:

Counter: This IS Ivanka posing with a Trump impersonator. Boris desperately wants to be Donald. https://t.co/Mw2BEAsr0y

That tie. The hair. The thumbs up. Ivanka. Is Boris engaging in Trump cosplay?
