BERLIN — Ivanka Trump arrived in Berlin on Tuesday morning armed with facts and figures to recite at what was expected to be a highbrow international summit to discuss women's entrepreneurship, alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
But on her first trip abroad as an official representative of the United States, the first daughter was put on the spot about her father's attitudes toward women, booed and hissed at by the crowd, and grilled by the moderator about what, exactly, her role is in President Donald Trump’s administration. “Certainly not the latter,” Trump said. “I’m rather unfamiliar with this role as well. ... It has been a little under 100 days, and it has just been a remarkable and incredible journey.” She did not define what her new role as a senior White House official entailed but said she cares "very much about empowering women in the workplace" and defined her goal as enacting “incremental positive change. That is my goal. This is very early for me; I’m listening, learning.” The questions asked of Trump seemed more direct than those about women in the workforce posed to Ivanka Trump, who was deeply involved with her father’s campaign and has been instrumental in his administration in the first three months in office, positioned herself as someone who is still in humbling listening-tour mode. “I’m striving to think about how best to empower women in the economy,” she said, at one point calling herself a feminist. “I have no doubt that coming out of this trip I’ll be more informed.” But she was booed and hissed at by the majority-women audience .edit “I’ve certainly heard the criticism from the media, that’s been perpetuated,” she said, drawing laughs from the audience.#dayofdistress #notmypresident #ivanka #ivankatrump #trump #donaldtrump #womensrights #civilrights #humanrights #angelamerkel #dumptrump #lockhimup #impeachtrump #maga #gop #republican #resistance #protest #melania #melanatrump #trumpmemes
