Outrage As Trump’s Son-in-law Emerges Top White House Adviser

By Ikenga Chronicles January 10, 2017

US President-elect’s, son-in-law Jared Kusher has on Monday emerged as one of the senior white House advisers. Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, is a property developer with a wide range of business interests.

The 35-year-old played a key role in the presidential campaign and his new White House job will cover both domestic and foreign policy.

Democrats are calling for a review of the appointment, citing nepotism laws and potential conflicts.

Members of Trump’s team have argued that a law barring officials from giving government jobs to relatives does not apply to White House positions.

Kushner was often seen by his father-in-law’s side during the presidential campaign and was heavily involved in its digital strategy.

Several of Trump’s Cabinet picks have business interests that will be scrutinised at confirmation hearings taking place this week.
