Trump to Name Son-in-Law as Senior Adviser

US president-elect Donald Trump’s son in-law, Jared Kushner, will serve as White House senior adviser, transition team sources said on Monday. Kushner, the businessman husband of Ivanka Trump, has requested a security clearance and will fill the top role, a senior transition team official told NBC News, UPI reported. ABC News cited two transition officials in its report confirming the news. Immediately following Trump’s election, many believed Kushner would be named as White House chief of staff after he met with President Barack Obama’s top adviser, Denis McDonough. But that post ultimately went to Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus. “I would love to have Jared helping us with deals with other nations, and see if we can do peace in the Middle East and other things. He’s very talented,” Trump said last month. Kushner, 35, was an influential member of Trump’s campaign and served as an adviser to the president-elect up to his election.
