Trump and Merkel are on a panel discussion today as part of the W20 Summit, a women-focused effort within the Group of 20 countries, entitled "Inspiring women: Scaling up women's entrepreneurship."

Trump will also visit a technology college run by the Siemens company and go to the German capital's memorial to the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis.

Trump stepped away from running her fashion brand to take a role as an unpaid White House adviser in her father's administration. She has spent time talking about women's empowerment, often at White House forums and roundtables.

People close to Ivanka said that she sees nothing unusual about the arrangement -- it is simply how she has worked with her father for years, as a senior official at the Trump Organisation and as Donald Trump's partner on the reality TV show "The Apprentice".
