The transition team of U.S President elect, Donald Trump has come out to deny reports making the rounds that Trump has sought out high level security clearances for his kids, even before officially starting duties at the White House.
According to a transition team source who spoke to CBS News, President-elect Donald Trump is considering trying to get Donald Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, along with Jared Kushner, his right-hand man and Ivanka Trump’s husband, permission to receive top security clearance.
A Trump transition team source has denied the claims. According to this transition team source, Donald Trump never gave his children permission to take such a step and they have not started filling out paperwork for such clearances.
Donald Trump’s kids have been very essential and instrumental in his White House bid, and also manage his business empire- hence eyebrows will be raised if his kids are given top level security clearance in the White House.
It is also very unusual for a president’s children to be so filled in with White House policies and happenings.
Donald Trump’s kids were last week added to the Donald Trump White House transition team.
