A newspaper in Germany said the U.S. media got it wrong when they claimed President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump was not booed at a women’s panel in Berlin Tuesday.
The German paper Bild reported that many were surprised with the performance of the presidential daughter as she made a sophisticated and level-headed impression at the panel.
Trump was participating in a panel discussion at the W-20 on women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship. It is a G-20 summit that aims to promote women equality and participation in the workforce.
Trump was one of eight participants that included German Chancellor Angela Merkel, International Monetary Fund director Christine Lagarde and Queen Màxima of the Netherlands.
Bild said they were surprised how American news organizations like the New York Times painted a different picture of what happened. “There was no booing or heckling at all, however,” Bild said.
The paper said the murmuring heard as Ivanka defended her father’s policies was interpreted as booing from the audience.
The Daily Caller reports:
According to the paper, there was “some unrest” in the audience, but nothing like US media outlets reported. CNN reported that Ivanka was booed and hissed by the crowd when she defended her father.”Ivanka Trump Got Jeered in Germany, and Late Night Joins In,” wrote The New York Times. Time Magazine devoted not one but two stories to pushing the narrative that Ivanka was booed. The Washington Post pushed out a piece titled, “Germany booed Ivanka Trump. America says she doesn’t belong in the White House.”
