President elect Donald Trump appointed his influential son-in-law Jared Kushner as a White House senior adviser on 9th
This puts estate executive Kushner in position to exert broad sway over both domestic and foreign policy.
It will influence particularly Middle East issues and trade negotiations.
Kushner is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka. She will not be taking a formal White House position.
Mr. Kushner’s own eligibility for the White House could be challenged, given a 1967 law meant to bar government officials from hiring relatives.
Mr. Kushner will resign as CEO of his family’s real estate company and as publisher of the New York Observer.
The anti-nepotism law had appeared to be the main obstacle to Mr. Kushner joining the White House.Know More About Jared Kushner
