Donald Trump’s eldest daughter has accepted an invitation from German Chancellor Angela Merkel to attend a women’s economic summit.
It was an awkward trip for Ms Merkel, as Mr Trump did not shake her hand in front of the cameras in the Oval Office.
“Looking forward to working together in Berlin next month to promote the role of women in the economy and the future of our workforce globally #W20,” Ms Trump wrote on social media.
Ms Trump, a mother of three who took a step back from her executive position at the Trump Organisation to move to Washington DC, spent time with Ms Merkel while the German leader visited the President.
Her lawyer said she would “voluntarily” comply with the government’s ethics rules, raising questions as to whether she would circumvent transparency.
