Aides said the president has not ruled out the possibility of his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner, exiting their White House positions. The person wasn't authorized to publicly discuss private policy deliberations and insisted on anonymity. "What they need is a chief of staff or someone else with a Rolodex of 5,000 names and a broad network to come clean this up", the official said in the report.
