“No choices have actually been made concerning Ivanka’s function,” Hope Hicks, Trump’s spokesperson, informed CNN.
Titles for Ivanka and her spouse, Jared Kushner, have actually not been figured out. Kushner, a publisher and business person, is anticipated to have his own function outside of the household workplace– the most current indicator that he might be bound for the West Wing.
Kushner has actually played a crucial function in Trump’s project, as a leading advisor, along with President-elect Donald Trump‘s 3 adult kids– Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka.

The information stay dirty, nevertheless, both since of Trump’s opaqueness and a federal nepotism law. Passed in 1967, the law specifies no public authorities– from the President to a low-level supervisor at a federal firm– might work with or promote a relative.
