This is just one more thing to raise eyebrows and set tongues a’wagging.
She is not part of the administration, yet, she’s always with him, and now she’s sitting at the desk in the Oval office.
President Trump’s very liberal daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been the power behind the throne, so to speak, and she and her husband, Jared Kushner, have a bigger part to play in the decisions coming from the Trump administration than possibly even Steve Bannon.
On Monday, Ivanka Trump posted to her Twitter account:
A great discussion with two world leaders about the importance of women having a seat at the table! ???? pic.twitter.com/AtiSiOoho0

Loyal and adoring Trump fans won’t see a problem with this.
Some criticized the image as being a show of nepotism from the president’s eldest daughter, and objected to her heavy involvement in Trump’s administration despite not having an official role.
@IvankaTrump lord, how many "bring your daughter to work" days is this administration going to have?

On Sunday, President Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders. The purpose of the council was to increase female entrepreneurship in both nations.
The meeting was arranged by Ivanka Trump, who has been the leading voice for more moderate to progressive concerns among White House advisers.
More of that cradle-to-grave, big government involvement that Ivanka is so fond of.
It probably helps Ivanka’s brand to keep these things going, as well, especially in wake of so many stores discontinuing her line.
But she is not elected, has no official role in the administration.
Keep telling yourself that.
