However, its response to helping Ukrainian refugees has been highly criticised.
During the interview, the foreign secretary said the UK is doing "all we can to support the refugees", which prompted White to quiz whether that meant the doors will be open for Ukrainians to seek refuge.
She said: "So, are we opening our doors in that case, or are we just expecting other countries to do that?"
"Well, the prime minister has always been clear that there will always be a home in Britain for refugees," Truss replied. "We are very concerned about what's happening on the ground and we're urgently looking at what more the United Kingdom can do."
The ITV host then candidly hit back and said: "It will be interesting to see how long that takes, Liz Truss,
"Because currently, we have children lying on floors in train stations who could really be doing with knowing where they will be sleeping in the next couple of nights."
Home Secretary @trussliz says the UK is doing 'all we can' to support Ukrainian refugees. The government has been criticised for not going far enough in simplifying visa controls https://www.itv.com/news/2022-02-27/russia-targets-ukraines-airfields-and-fuel-supplies-as-invasion-continues\u00a0\u2026pic.twitter.com/rYj5yfuVLh
People have since turned to social media to applaud White for asking the questions "that need to be asked."
One said they had a "heart filled with love and admiration" for the ITV host and her straight-talking responses.
This whole interview with Liz Truss was something I was so proud of, but this last bit here....I need all journalists to start getting on to these politicians and asking them the questions that need to be asked! \n\n@CharleneWhite proud of you pic.twitter.com/rgA9cRftAs

Another Twitter user called the ITV journalist "brilliant" for her final remark.
Yes! I literally shouted \u201cgo on Charlene!!\u201d At the TV when she said this. Just brilliant
Others were quick to criticise the UK's lack of preparation and "shameful" delay.
Shameful that @liztruss hasn\u2019t *already* changed visa rules so that Ukrainian refugees can come here.\u201cThis is something we\u2019re looking at\u201d isn\u2019t good enough. Government has been predicting this crisis for weeks - why haven\u2019t they prepared for this better? #Raworth #SundayMorning
Another compared the UK's response to what other countries have achieved in a matter of days.
\u201cAll we can\u201d? Look at other countries and they already did in the last 4 days.. Lighting up buildings in multicolour doesn\u2019t constitute\u2018doing\u2019. Posturing and gesture politics isn\u2019t \u2018doing\u2019.
No this government is not doing everything it could! and we are ashamed of our government. Remove restrictions and shelter these people in their hour of need!\n#Ukraine\n\nhttps://www.instagram.com/reel/CahA-KHOyHM/?utm_medium=copy_link\u00a0\u2026https://twitter.com/itvnews/status/1497873178718310401\u00a0\u2026
