Accompanying her father, US President Donald Trump, on his first official trip to Poland, first daughter Ivanka Trump paid her respects to the Polish Jews who died during the Holocaust. She visited the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes on Thursday, where she laid a wreath, and the POLIN Museum of the History of the Polish Jews in Warsaw.

While Ivanka traveled to the monument, President Trump has come under fire from Jewish leaders for not making a stop there. The chief rabbi of Poland, Michael Shudrich, along with the president of the Jewish Community of Warsaw and the president of the Union of Jewish Committees in Poland, called it "a slight."

During the president's visit to Israel in May, the Trump family visited the Western Wall, and laid a wreath at Yad Vashem. 

President Trump is making a speech in Warsaw on Thursday afternoon and will then travel to Hamburg for a G20 summit. During his speech in Krasinski Square in Warsaw, Trump highlighted the relationship between Poland and the United States, spoke about Poland's Jewish community, and was joined on stage by individuals who took part in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
