When Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the White House on Monday for the first time since President Trump's inauguration, Ivanka Trump sat in on a women's business initiative discussion.
Businesswoman Ivanka Trump has been an outspoken advocate of women in the workplace, and posted an image from the White House after attending the meeting with her father and Trudeau.
"A great discussion with two world leaders about the importance of women having a seat at the table!" the Trump daughter tweeted with the picture.

Some objected to the picture, saying Ivanka Trump was using the Oval Office as a "prop."

Twitter reacts to Ivanka Trump's sitting at Oval Office desk:
Civilians have sat at the Oval Office desk before, though, and others were quick to back up the first family member.
