1. Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law, has been appointed as a senior adviser to the president. Kushner is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka, who will also be working in the White House in some capacity. Kushner has experience in business and played a key role in his father-in-law's presidential campaign.

2. However, a 1967 anti-nepotism law includes "son-in-law" in appointments that are prohibited. The law was passed after President John F. Kennedy appointed his brother Robert to serve as attorney general. But some ethics experts have argued that Kushner could legally serve in the White House as long as he doesn't receive a salary.

3. So, should Trump's son-in-law serve in his administration?
