Tiffany Trump, the President's youngest daughter, will enroll in Georgetown's Law School this coming Fall after completing her undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
Tiffany Trump will not be the first Trump child to receive a Georgetown degree. Her half-brother, Eric, graduated from Georgetown's McDonough School of Business in 2006. Her older half-sister Ivanka also attended Georgetown for two years as an undergraduate before transferring to her father's alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania.
Eric Trump is still involved with Georgetown and sits on the board of the The Business, Society, and Public Policy Initiative at the McDonough School of Business. When asked about his sister's acceptance, Eric responded, "I am so proud of Tiffany. Georgetown University is a truly amazing school and she is going to love her time in Washington DC."
Being a member of the First Family, Tiffany Trump will receive some level of Secret Service protection while at Georgetown. While this may have been noticeable at other universities, there are plenty of Georgetown students who are related to government employees and diplomats, so the added security should be barely noticeable.
Tiffany's decision to go to school just two miles away from the White House means that yet another member of the Trump family will be in Washington DC during Donald Trump's Presidency. Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, are already living in DC and working as White House advisers. First Lady Melania Trump and son Barron will be moving to Washington DC from New York City as soon as Barron's school year is over.
President Trump's opponents have long criticized his post-election arrangements with his adult-age children. Critics argue that the President did not do enough to allay the public's fears about conflicts of interest when he put his two eldest sons in charge of the Trump Organization. Additionally, the inclusion of Ivanka and Jared as White House advisers has led some to argue that the President is violating the country's anti-nepotism laws. Technically, the President cannot legally possess a conflict of interest - he is exempted within the law - and the White House argues that because Trump's daughter and son-in-law are unpaid, they do not fall under the anti-nepotism statutes.
Social media was not kind to Tiffany Trump when the news broke, with many on Twitter using the news as an opportunity to criticize the Trump administration.
For decades, an unwritten rule has existed in American politics that dictated that the President's children, especially school-age children, are off-limits. When 11-year-old Barron Trump found himself in the political spotlight earlier this year, former First Child Chelsea Clinton took to social media to implore others to just let Barron "be a kid."
