Nobody is entirely clear what Ivanka Trump’s role as First Daughter is… not even Ivanka herself.
The First Daughter was invited to Germany by Angela Merkel this week, which made it her first official trip abroad.
While she was there, Ivanka was invited to sit on a panel of world leaders during the Women20 summit in Berlin, and was asked a series of interesting and sometimes even uncomfortable questions; one of which being about her official role as the First Daughter.
But it was her answer to one particular question about her father Donald Trump’s views and attitudes towards women which was met with audible hisses and boos from the audience.
After calling her father “a tremendous champion” of families in response to that question and receiving boos from the entire room, she tried to explain herself further…
“I’ve certainly heard the criticism from the media, that’s been perpetuated,” Ivanka said, which received quite a few chuckles from the crowd.
“I know from personal experience the thousands of women who have worked with and for my father for decades when he was in the private sector are a testament to his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man.”
She was also asked the question, “whom are you representing: your father as the president of the United States, the American people, or your business?” to which she had a fairly unclear response.
Ivanka Trump explained that she is still unsure of how her role as the First Daughter will take shape, and will take each day as it comes. Well, at least it’s an honest answer!

Do you think Ivanka Trump deserved to get booed like that?
