Daughter of US President Donald Trump , Ivanka Trump who is also a part of his administration team, received a critical welcome by the German media on her visit to Germany to attend a women’s W20 summit.
When it comes to the economic empowerment of women, we must recognize the importance of a united approach. Today I joined a diverse panel of women leaders on stage at the #W20Summit. Together, we will work to address the challenges faced by women in the economy, domestically and around the world, and create opportunities to ensure their success! Thank you, Chancellor Merkel, for including me in this critical discussion. #WomensEconomicEmpowerment
On her first official overseas trip as an adviser to the president, Ms. Trump was thrust into a more familiar role — defending her father’s behavior to skeptical foreigners.
“The German audience is not that familiar with the concept of a first daughter,” the panel’s moderator, Miriam Meckel, editor in chief of the financial weekly WirtschaftsWoche, said. “I’d like to ask you, what is your role, and who are you representing, your father as president of the United States, the American people, or your business?”
“Certainly not the latter,” Ms. Trump replied, adding, “And I am rather unfamiliar with this role as well, as it is quite new to me.”
