The first daughter was spotted slipping into Trump’s seat at a working session on “Partnership with Africa, Migration and Health,” putting her shoulder-to-shoulder with British Prime Minister Theresa May. Russian President Vladimir Putin was sitting one seat down.

What is this about? Beyond managing a line of shoes, what exactly qualifies Ivanka Trump to be sitting among world leaders, especially when tensions are running high among many super powers?

Granted, it is hard to identify what experience Donald Trump has that would qualify him for being a key player in such a meeting, as well, but he, at least, was elected by the people.

This is the definition of nepotism run amok and a sign American democracy is in serious trouble.
