Ivanka Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump and part of his administration team, received a critical welcome by the German media on her visit to Germany to attend a women’s summit.

Referred to as the “First Whisperer” and a “loyal accomplice” to Donald Trump by media in Germany, Ivanka responded by conveying her dislike of the term accomplice.

I don’t like the word accomplice. In this context I don’t know that that’s productive. One of the things I value about my father (Donald Trump) is that he curates ideas and he likes to hear from people with divergent viewpoints. And that’s not always true in politics. It’s actually seldom true.

Earlier this year, the ‘First Daughter’ was also mocked in a skit of the popular show Saturday Night Live (SNL). The skit features renowned actress Scarlett Johansson supposedly impersonating Ivanka, who is labelled as ‘complicit’.

As a reaction to this video, Ivanka was told CBS News:

I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.
