President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, spoke about the next generation of Muslims and the importance of social media at the Tweeps Forum in Saudi Arabia.

Ivanka said that social media is a 'powerful tool', and said the young generation of Muslims could build a future of tolerance.

"Social media is an incredibly powerful tool," Ivanka said. "It empowers the people particularly the next generation."

She added that the 'entrepreneurial spirit in Saudi' was very much at work and the young Muslim generation is a 'generation that can build a future of tolerance, of hope and of peace."

She spoke in place of her father who was scheduled to speak. The Tweeps Forum is a five-year-old event that engages young people interested in social media. It's run by a foundation that has ties to the Saudi government.
