    President-elect Donald Trump is requesting his three oldest children, as well as his son-in-law, receive top-level security clearance, US media reported.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Trump has asked how to get Eric, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Jared Kushner top secret clearance, CBS News reported on Monday.

    The four have roles on Trump's transition team, but are not expected to play a role in a future Trump administration, according to media reports.

    Only official government employees and contractors are allowed to have security clearance.

    Some media reports indicate the children will run the Trump businesses and also work as unpaid national security advisors.
