President Donald Trump's senior adviser and daughter Ivanka is not happy about the headlines on German newspapers calling her a "loyal accomplice" to her father.
Trump went to Germany at Chancellor Angela Merkel's invitation to a women's summit Tuesday. Before her arrival, the German newspaper Berliner Zeitung ran the headline "First Whisperer," and raised questions about her role in the White House.
"I don't like the word 'accomplice' because in this context, I don't know that that's productive," she told NBC News' "Today."
"One of the things that I value about my father, as first a businessman and now as the leader of our country, 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."
While in Germany, Trump denied she influenced her father's decision to allow an air strike against Syria last month, calling the idea "a flawed interpretation."
The remarks come after her brother Eric Trump told The Daily Telegraph that Ivanka has "influence" over their father, and after the reports of the Syrian chemical attack Eric Trump was "sure she said: 'Listen, this is horrible stuff.' My father will act in times like that."
"While I expressed that sentiment – as a leader of a country you can't make decision based on emotion alone," Ivanka Trump said Tuesday, according to ABC News. "His decision was incredibly well-informed and advised at every level."
