During her trip, the first daughter will visit the German capital's memorial to the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis. "As a daughter, I can speak on a very personal level". "I need to address one more point: some attitudes towards women your father has publicly displayed in former times might leave one questioning whether he's such an empowerer for women".
Asked whether she represented the president, the American people or her business, she replied, "Well certainly not the latter, and I am rather unfamiliar with this role as it is quite new to me too, it has been a little under 100 days".
Ivanka Trump was put on the spot over her father's statements while participating in a panel discussion at the W20 Women's entrepreneurship summit in Berlin, Tuesday. But Trump had come to the summit with more to prove.

Ivanka was well-liked before Donald Trump was elected.

On her first worldwide trip as an official representative of the U.S., the first daughter was put on the spot about her father's attitude towards women, Politico reported.
In response, Ivanka cited the number of women whom her father has employed in senior positions at his companies and his support of her own business career.
Ivanka Trump's role within her father's administration seems to continue expanding.
She was asked whether he could be considered a champion of women given his history of making sexist and misogynistic comments. She was accompanied by US Embassy personnel and a strong police guard to keep curious tourists and others at a distance.
"Politics is politics, as I'm learning", she added.
For her part, Ivanka says she's not a "loyal accomplice" to the President.
