Should the president's children be allowed to work in the White House? | The Tylt
First Daughter Ivanka Trump was just given a West Wing office and top security clearance, although she will draw no salary and will not bound by any government ethics rules. Federal anti-nepotism laws supposedly forbid presidents from hiring family members, but since Ivanka has no official role, the laws do not apply to her. Critics are calling this move a major conflict of interest; Ivanka and her supporters say she has every right to advise her father. What do you think?

So many people defending Ivanka being given a West Wing office would have been livid if Hillary won and gave Chelsea an office— Josh Billinson (@jbillinson) March 20, 2017
And now we have Ivanka Trump. Not elected, not appointed, not confirmed. What rules govern these unofficial positions? "Voluntary ethics."— Alexandra Erin (@alexandraerin) March 21, 2017
