Call it the nepotism loophole.
From the London Daily Mail:
Donald Trump appoints ‘incredibly successful’ son-in-law Jared Kushner to White House as ‘Senior Advisor’ – but he won’t be paid a penny to avoid nepotism laws
- Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was named ‘senior advisor to the president’ on Monday
- Kushner was instrumental in Trump’s campaign and had signaled that he planned to move to Washington and work for the president-elect
- He has been separating himself from his global real estate business, while he and Ivanka Trump have settled on a Washington, D.C., home
