Donald Trump is fresh off an interview (opens in new tab) with Fox News' Chris Wallace, where he happily chatted about how much he'd love for Ivanka Trump to be involved in his presidential administration. You know, the same Ivanka who is vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization.
"We're working that out right now," Trump said. "I think we'll have to see how the laws read."
Anti-nepotism laws exist precisely to prevent conflicts of interest from occurring, and Trump is allegedly removing himself from his business as a result. But, is he really doing so if his daughter could be working for both the Trump family biz and the White House? Unclear, but probably not.
Oh, and to make everything more complicated, the president elect also wants Ivanka's husband Jared Kushner involved in his administration.
Ivanka has previously stated that she would not be working with her father in a "formal administrative capacity." That said, she also met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (opens in new tab) (while simultaneously finalizing a business deal in Japan (opens in new tab)) and is said to be moving to D.C. (opens in new tab), so who knows what her plan might be.
