The First Daughter, Ivanka Trump is becoming an official government employee in the coming days. She will be an unpaid employee working in the west wing. She is joining her husband, Jared Kushner, as an unpaid adviser to her father, Donald Trump in the White House.
During the press release on Wednesday, she said,
“I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the President in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House Office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees,” Ivanka Trump said in a statement. “Throughout this process, I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role.”
All we can say is this the power of politics. People of USA are not happy with this decision. Now the elder daughter of Donald Trump will be an adviser to the President following her husband Jared Kushner and will file her own Form 278 which means she is legally bound by ethics rules. The statement from White House said,
“We are pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as the first daughter and in support of the President.”
The attorney of Donald Trump, Jamie S. Gorelick said,
“Ivanka’s decision reflects both her commitment to compliance with federal ethics standards and her openness to opposing points of view. She will file the financial disclosure forms required of federal employees and be bound by the same ethics rules that she had planned to comply with voluntarily.”
The elevation of Ivanka Trump elevation has prompted critics to note the potential violation of the nepotism law which was passed in 1967, which suggests that no public official from the President down to a low-level manager at a federal agency — may hire or promote a relative. However, the law states that any appointee found to have violated the law is “not entitled to pay” by the federal government, it means there will be no official salary for Ivanka Trump if she will be elected as an official employee in White House.
Well, as they say, might is right, it’s the reign of Donald Trump. He has the power to make or break the rules. The example is right there!
