The President is elected not his family then why the family members of the president take part in politics and take part and make speeches in not all but many political meetings.I'm not talking about the First Lady but people like Ivanka Trumpetc, etc... Isn't this discrimination? They don't have the right because the people didn't elect them. Does the Constitution state anything about this?

  • "Isn't this discrimination?" What? Against whom? – F1Krazy Jun 25 '20 at 7:58
  • It is nepotism, which our system fails to resolve – Joe Biden Jun 25 '20 at 8:59
  • This is not something that is generally practiced, certainly not to the extent that it is under the current administration. As for why it's done in the current administration, that would involve the psychology of the current President. – jamesqf Jun 25 '20 at 17:26

There are thousands of roles that each president appoints. By definition, none of those people were elected. Would you prefer each of those were also elected? How big would that ballot be?

Trump is only unusual in not caring there is the appearance of nepotism.

  • Why, other Republicans can also be appointed by him, instead of his son or daughter – Joe Biden Jun 25 '20 at 9:02
