US President’s Donald Trump’ daughter, Ivanka Trump, faced a tough audience in the German capital after defending her father, calling him a “tremendous champion of supporting families.”
Ivanka, who is now a White House adviser, was speaking about her father’s attitude toward women during a high-profile women’s panel in Berlin today. During Ivanka’s remarks praising her father, the audience began to boo her.
Trump was repeatedly criticized during his presidential campaign for his inflammatory language against Muslims, immigrants, women and other groups. The first daughter said she has heard criticism from the media and said her goal in her father’s administration is “incremental positive change.”
Ivanka was met with skepticism in Germany, which views the new US administration with suspicion and is unsure of what to make of the first daughter’s duties in the White House.
Trump has recently come under a furious backlash from political opponents and ethics experts for placing his children in positions of power. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was also appointed as a senior White House adviser by the president.
