Trump has been a vocal advocate for policies benefiting working women and vocational training. But she also has faced criticism in the United States, particularly from those who think she has done little to temper her father's conservative agenda.

Sharing a stage with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, International Monetary Fund director Christine Lagarde, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and others, Trump was asked by the moderator whom she was representing — President Donald Trump, the American people, or her own business interests.

"Certainly not the latter," Trump said,As Trump described her father as "a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive," she drew scattered groans and hisses from the audience, prompting moderator Miriam Meckel to press her for a response.
