At the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the first daughter participated in the W20 Summit alongside Merkel, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and five others for a panel on women’s entrepreneurship on Tuesday.

Ivanka was met with groans as she described her father President Trump as a ‘tremendous champion of families’.

Asked about President Donald Trump’s past attitudes toward women, Ivanka said: “I’ve certainly heard the criticism from the media, and that’s been perpetuated.”

She added: “He encouraged me and enabled me to thrive. I grew up in a house where there were no barriers to what I could accomplish.” The audience interrupted Trump with hissing and boos during a discussion on paid leave when she began describing her father as an advocate for women.

“I know from my 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 his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man,” she said.

“As a daughter, I can speak on a very personal level,” she added, according to Politico. “I grew up in a house where there were no barriers to what I could accomplish beyond my own perseverance and tenacity. That’s not an easy thing to do, he provided that for us.”

During the Berlin discussion, Donald Trump tweeted that he was “proud” of Ivanka for “her leadership on these important issues”.
