According to one German paper, reports by U.S. media outlets that Ivanka Trump was booed in Germany are incorrect.

A panel of women, including Ivanka Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, shared a stage in Berlin on Tuesday for the “Women20 Summit.” As moderator Miriam Meckel asked questions, Trump remained calm and composed, according to reports.

Meckel asked Trump about her role at the White House. Stating that she no longer represents her business, Trump replied, “I am rather unfamiliar with this role, as well, as it is quite new to me,” she said. “It has been a little under 100 days, but it [has] just been a remarkable … an incredible journey.”

Trump added, “So, it’s very early for me. I’m listening, I’m learning, I’m defining the ways in which I think I’ll be able to have impact.”
There was one moment that her composure was apparently tested, however.  When asked about paid leave, Trump said, “That is something [in which] I’m very proud of my father’s advocacy. Long before he came into the presidency, he championed this in the primaries. He’s been a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive.”
The crowd reacted at that point with what some media outlets reported as “a response,” while others called it booing, hissing, jeering, and a negative reaction. The Washington Post reported, “Germany booed Ivanka Trump. America says she doesn’t belong in the White House.”

According to Germany’s Bild:

At this point, there was some unrest in the audience. There was no booing or heckling at all, however. This makes it even more surprising that US media are painting an entirely different picture of Ivanka’s appearance in Berlin. The murmuring that could be heard as Ivanka defended her father against criticism was interpreted as massive booing of the President’s daughter. The alleged hostility toward Ivanka during her visit to Berlin was a lead headline at US outlets such as ABC, CNN, and Fox, along with several major newspapers.

Furthermore, while Bild says there was “unrest” and “murmuring,” the U.K’s Telegraph called the vocalizations “jeers” and said Trump was “immediately forced onto the defensive as she was questioned about her father’s attitude to women.”

Meckel went on to question Trump about her fathers’ “attitudes toward women,” and said it “might leave one questioning whether he is such an [sic] empowerer for women.”

“I’ve certainly heard the criticism from the media and that’s been perpetuated,” Ivanka replied. “Thousands of women who have worked with and for my father for decades, when he was in the private sector, are testament to his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man.”

The first daughter noted that on a personal level, she can say that President Trump “encouraged me and enabled me to thrive.” She says she grew up empowered and supported. “There was no difference for me and my brothers.”

Bild reports, “Many people were surprised by Ivanka Trump’s performance in Berlin. Contrary to the stereotype, the daughter of the US President made a sophisticated and level-headed impression.” They report that “the glamorous White House ambassador” cleverly handled herself.
