Donald Trump, Jr, Eric Trump, Ivanka, and Jared Kushner, her husband, are among members of the transition committee of the billionaire businessman.
All the three children have roles in the Trump Organisation, according to the company’s website.
Ivanka is the executive vice-president of development and acquisitions, charged with domestic and global expansion of the company’s real estate interests.
Donald is an executive vice-president, and works to expand the company’s real estate, retail, commercial, hotel and golf interests nationally and internationally, while Eric is executive vice-president of development and acquisitions, responsible for new project acquisition.
During the campaign, the incoming president deflected questions about how he will handle conflicts of interest as president by saying his children would run his companies in a “blind trust”.
An observer pointed out that this would not really be a blind trust because the director of a blind trust is supposed to be independent of the trust’s ultimate owner.
Some advisers and donors who supported Trump’s campaign, and Pam Bondi, Florida’s attorney-general who was richly compensated after dropping a lawsuit against Trump University, is also in the team headed by Mike Pence, vice-president-elect .
