How many of Donald Trump’s family are involved in his Presidency?
- Ivanka – has just been given an office in the Whitehouse and previously served as executive vice-president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization.
- Jared Kushner – senior adviser to the president
- Melanie – the first lady of the United States (but has chosen to stay in New York until June, with Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron)
The Trump’s are not the first Presidential family to assign places from within.
An anti-nepotism law was passed in 1967 prohibiting a president from appointing a family member. Before the statute passed, President John F Kennedy famously appointed his brother Robert Kennedy as US Attorney General. President Bill Clinton similarly appointed his wife and then-First Lady Hillary Clinton as the head of a health reform task force in 1993.
