Ivanka Trump's first international trip as an official federal employee was met with a rough start.

The president's daughter was booed and hissed at by the crowd and grilled about her father's attitudes toward women, Politico reports.

Moderators did not hold back, asking her, "The German audience is not that familiar with the concept of a first daughter ... who are you representing: Your father as president of the United States, the American people or your business?"

Trump said she "certainly" did not represent her business, but did not define what her White House role was. 

When she touted her father's advocacy for women, the audience, largely female, booed and hissed. When pressed, she said her father treated her and her two brothers exactly the same.

When asked about her father's attitudes that "might leave one questioning whether he's such an empower-er for women," Trump dismissed the claims as "criticism from the media."
