Ivanka Trump was booed as she defended his father's attitude towards women and hailed him as a "tremendous champion of supporting families".
Trump's one-day visit, at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, gave Merkel and other officials face-to-face access with the president's influential daughter at a time when world leaders are still trying to discern where his policies will lead.
The first daughter faced jeers from an unsympathetic audience as she attended the G20 women's summit in Berlin alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, IMF head Christine Lagarde and others.
Ivanka vowed to stay out of the Oval Office when her dad Donald Trump was inaugurated as US President, but was appointed as an unpaid advisor to the president earlier this month.
IVANKA TRUMP has spoken about how proud she is of her father's advocacy for families and his championing of women in the workplace.

Risa Heller, a personal spokeswoman for Ivanka Trump, referred The Post's questions to the White House. "She will not solicit funds", the official said, according to the Post.
"I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that's happening and we have to come together and we have to solve it", she told NBC in an interview aired Wednesday morning.
