Somebody might need to contact the Office of Government Ethics, because this is outrageous.
Already before the inauguration there were grumblings that Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, would unfairly benefit from Donald Trump’s presidency – in other words, nepotism in the highest office in the land.
Well, it is true that Ivanka and her husband landed top tier positions as special advisers to the president.
But that has a lot to do with their individual talents, and the fact that they’re some of the few people in the world Trump feels he can trust unconditionally.
Also, for this to truly be nepotism, Ivanka and Jared Kushner would have to be personally benefitting from the arrangement in some way.
The thing is, while both are putting in long hours in service to the American public, they are being paid NOTHING.
That’s right, in accordance with annual reporting requirements, the White House has published the salaries of its staff.
There are 25 special aides in the White House at present. Most are making the standard annual salary of $180,000.
But Ivanka and Jared Kushner? They’re both taking home the grand total of $0.00.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call true ethics.
Can anyone truly say Obama would’ve done the same?
But the thing is, given all these two are doing for America, and the tireless hours they are putting in, do they really deserve to take home nothing??
