President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka drew a strong reaction Monday for posting a photo of herself at the Oval Office desk.
The photo shows Ivanka flanked by the president and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the prime minister's visit to the White House on Monday.
The photo quickly sparked heated reaction on both sides...
@IvankaTrump the first woman photographed at that desk should be the one who earns the seat, not appointed by Dad. How out of touch are you?

Did the US elect Ivanka Trump as President? Why is she sitting at one of the world's most iconic desk?

@IvankaTrump it's inappropriate for you to be in those meetings and seated at that desk. You are not the POTUS

@IvankaTrump get off the desk and work on saving your company's employees job.

@IvankaTrump It's not fake news when she sits at the president desk. It's just not news. A "kid" sitting at her dad's desk. I'm very ok w it
