“robust” discussion [quotation marks?]

Hello,

I was wondering about the quotes around the word, robust. Is the reason linguistic-usage- or political?
I'm only concerned if there are any language problems.

Apparently, Ivanka Trump even expressed how she felt about being involved in such an important meeting via Twitter, saying that she was honored to join Chancellor Merkel and her father in the “robust” discussion on Workforce Development.

Edit:
I forgot to mention the possibility of the author amused by her using a big word. Could robust be a big word for Trump's daughter?
