Trump names son-in-law as senior White House adviser

10 Jan 2017 | By Abheet Sethi

US President-elect Donald Trump has named Jared Kushner, his son-in-law, as a senior White House adviser.

Kushner, 35, is married to Ivanka Trump, 35.

Members of the rival Democratic Party oppose Kushner's appointment, citing nepotism laws and potential conflict of interest.

Members of the US government's House Judiciary Committee have called on the Department of Justice and the Office of Government Ethics' intervention.
