Why is Ivanka Trump sitting in Donald Trump’s chair?

Ivanka sparks anger as she sits between Trump and Justin Trudeau.

Trump has been accused of nepotism once again as his daughter, Ivanka Trump, takes a seat in the president’s chair.
Ivanka tweeted the picture along with the caption:
“A great discussion with two world leaders about the importance of women having a seat at the table!”
The photo was taken after she attended a roundtable discussion on women in the workforce.
The White House said she “helped recruit participants and set the agenda”.
But the picture sparked outrage with Twitter users, one user noting she was “upset because the first woman in that seat should’ve been the one who earned it.”
Others accused the Trump family of nepotism, with one man asking: “How many 'bring your daughter to work' days is this administration going to have?”
It comes shortly after the POTUS received huge backlash for getting involved in Ivanka's dispute with retailer Nordstrom, who dropped her clothing line.
Other users were quick to note it's just a chair at the end of the day.
