HAMBURG, Germany — US President Donald Trump has praised his daughter, Ivanka, and acknowledging the challenges he’s added to her life.

In a rare, self-deprecating moment, the president said Saturday during remarks in Hamburg, Germany that he’s been proud of his eldest daughter from “day one.”

He says, “If she weren’t my daughter it would be so much easier for her,” adding with a laugh: “That might be the only bad thing she has going, if you want to know the truth.”

The candid aside came as Trump was speaking at the launch of a new women’s entrepreneurship fund that Ivanka Trump helped bring together.

Ivanka Trump moved to Washington to work as a senior adviser to her father and has faced pressure from critics who’d hoped she’d be able to push him to adopt more moderate policies.
