    Trump’s daughter has attended a series of events in Germany over the last couple of days. However, her ambitious schedule has been met with a mixed reaction, especially the women’s empowerment talks, with many picking up on her father’s recent blatant remarks on the subject.

    On Saturday, Ivanka Trump attended the Munich Security Conference, with one of the questions raised during the discussion being women’s economic empowerment as a “catalyst for global peace, national security and economic prosperity”, as she put it in her Twitter post.  She then shared a picture from the joint dinner with the high-profile speakers and guests, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and captioned it in German, translating her previous post, which was most inspiring and filled with gratitude.

    Many thought the positive vibes that Ivanka had expressed were not in the least shared by the German chancellor. One commenter even suggested that Merkel “despises” her, presumably judging by the expression on her face:

    “Too bad that Angela Merkel cannot say the same thing”, one Twitterian posted in German.

    Some took a chance to laud Merkel and naturally compare her leadership to President Trump’s:

    Many netizens just chose to crack jokes about Ivanka, formerly a prospering businesswoman and “purse maker”, suggesting her being utterly unfit for her government post:

    Parallels with her dad also arrived in abundance:

    Many, in the meantime, butted in cracking a couple of hilarious jokes and even posting laughable gifs:

    Others applauded “the awesome” Ivanka, while there were those who shamed her for double standards, recalling the way she had “exploited workers”, including undocumented, low-paid women “in sweatshops making tacky products for business”. Some naturally brought up “a long history of interesting statements about women” made in the Trump family, namely the president’s notorious “grab them by the p***y” line:
