Ivanka Trump booed during women's panel after touting father's platform

Ivanka Trump was met with boos and hisses on Tuesday when she brought up her father's presidential platform during a W20 Summit panel in Berlin.

In discussing President Trump's values, the commander in chief's eldest daughter spoke of her father, saying he was a "tremendous champion of supporting families" -- a statement that was met with audible groans from the audience.

"You hear the reaction from the audience," the panel moderator noted, asking Ivanka Trump another question. "Some attitudes toward women your father has publicly displayed in former times might leave one questioning whether he's such an empowerer of women. What's your comment on that?"

"I've certainly heard the criticism from the media and that's been perpetuated," Ivanka Trump responded. "But I know from personal experience and I think 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 this belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability do the job as well as any man."

The new government employee was also asked in blunt terms whether she represents the American people, her father or her business, to which she replied, "Certainly not the latter."

Ivanka Trump co-authored an op-ed published Tuesday with World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, "Investment in women unleashes global gains," a piece the president tweeted out with praise for his daughter.

Ivanka Trump arrived in Berlin on Tuesday morning, where she attends the third annual W20 Summit on the equality and empowerment of women in Berlin alongside many female world leaders.

Ivanka Trump is expected to participate in at least one panel, where she will discuss entrepreneurship alongside high-profile women, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, IMF Director Christine Lagarde and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.
