DO YOU THINK it’s ok to boo a speaker at an event? And does it make a difference if that person is a world leader’s daughter?

While attending a women’s summit in Germany yesterday, US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka was booed at after praising him as an advocate for women and families during a discussion on paid maternity leave.

“That is something I’m very proud of my father’s advocacy, long before he came into the presidency, he championed this in the primaries. He’s been a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive,” she said.

So we’re asking: Do you think it’s acceptable that Ivanka Trump was booed at?
