While attending a W20 summit in Berlin on Tuesday, Ivanka Trump discussed her new role as a White House advisor and the economic progress for women in the U.S.—and managed to get booed in the process, according to The Washington Post. The discussion was part of a leadership panel that included German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"That is something 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," Ivanka said, according to CNN, causing the crowd to start booing and hissing. Maybe because her father has literally talked about grabbing women by the pussy, which doesn't exactly scream "champion of women."

"I've certainly heard the criticism from the media and that's been perpetuated, 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 his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man," she continued.

Ivanka, you know that your personal experience with your dad doesn't translate to how he treats women as a whole, right?

The oldest Trump daughter has her own White House office, and though she's stepped down from her fashion brand and decided not to promote her upcoming book, she's still received criticism that she hasn't done enough to avoid conflicts of interest. Still, Ivanka said at the summit that she doesn't regret staying involved in politics.

“It has been a little under 100 days but it has just been a remarkable, incredible journey,” she said.
