Ivanka Trump receives mixed reaction to picture of herself seated at Oval Office desk

US president Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka has posted a photo of herself seated at the Oval Office desk while her father and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau stand on either side of her.

The first daughter posted the picture on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, with the message: "A great discussion with two world leaders about the importance of women having a seat at the table!"

While the picture earned Ms Trump plenty of backing from supporters of her father on social media, others said she had not earned the right to sit behind the desk.
