    The possible use of the word “unmasked” has led some social media users to speculate whether Trump's children have been in contact with one or more foreign governments.

    US President Donald Trump recently announced that his adult children – Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. - were “unmasked” in intelligence reports on the day of his inauguration in 2017.

    This development was first reported by NYT correspondent Maggie Haberman, who, citing two people familiar with the matter, tweeted that Trump made this statement during a Senate lunch.

    ​As the Daily Mail points out, it was not immediately clear which of the aforementioned trio of Trump's adult children would be mentioned in intelligence reports on the 2016 election campaign.

    A number of social media users seemed perplexed by the reveal, wondering aloud about what might have attracted that kind of attention to the president's adult children and whether they were in contact with one or more foreign governments.
