President Trump's daughter Ivanka defends his attitude towards women

Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to her father President Donald Trump, attends the W20 Summit under the motto "Inspiring women: scaling up women's entrepreneurship" in Berlin, Germany. At a panel discussion in Berlin on Tuesday, the moderator asked whether she represents President Donald Trump, the American people or her business.
Ivanka said that she was "unfamiliar" with her role, but that she was "certainly" not in Germany on behalf of her business.
"That's why he's encouraged me to lean into this opportunity and come into the White House and be by his side as we think through these complex issues", she said.
"I'm sure she said 'Listen, this is awful stuff.' My father will act in times like that", Eric said.
According to a senior administration official, Trump recently pitched the idea to World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, who then discussed it with other leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The President has repeatedly called for Syrians fleeing the country's civil war to be placed in safe zones rather than the United States, and said during the Presidential campaign that he would send Syrian refugees back if he was elected, often criticizing Hillary Clinton for proposing to expand the number of refugees allotted into the U.S. "And that is my goal".
Ms Trump said her father has been "a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive", prompting boos from the audience.
Trump replied: "I've certainly heard the criticism from the media, and that's been perpetuated".
She said: "I'm listening, I'm learning, I'm defining the ways in which I think that I'll be able to have impact". The chancellor, who presides over Europe's biggest economy, is among foreign leaders reaching out to President Donald Trump's oldest daughter to try to moderate his views on matters such as global trade and defense spending.
In an interview with NBC News'Hallie Jacksontoday, Ivanka Trump bristled at the description of her as an "accomplice" to her father, stating that she didn't "like the intonation" of it.
Ivanka Trump told me yesterday from Berlin that she has begun building a massive fund that will benefit female entrepreneurs around the globe. She then explained her life in a household in which she said held "no barriers to what I could accomplish beyond my own perseverance and tenacity".
The audience booed and hissed at her when she defended her father's attitudes towards women during a discussion on paid leave. Her role pushes ethical boundaries relating to nepotism rules in the White House, but that may not be the only ethical boundary she's testing.
He was also publicly ridiculed for appearing to refuse to shake Merkel's hand when she met with him at the White House in March.
Ivanka's trip to Berlin is her first overseas visit on behalf of the U.S. government. I think she carried herself very well in terms of the optics of the stage and the people that she was surrounded with.
Trump also visited Berlin's memorial to the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis.
