Once it became clear that Donald Trump was going to become the 45th President of the United States, many wondered what role his family members would have on his administration. Inserting family into powerful positions in the White House is often frowned upon, and comes dangerously close to violating anti-nepotism laws, which is often pointed out by cable news critics of the commander in chief.

Trump family trouble

Not long after Donald Trump locked up the nomination for the Republican Party, it became apparent that his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were going to serve in important roles in the campaign.

As time moved on, the family of the former host of "The Apprentice" soon cemented themselves as having key spots in shaping Trump's vision for the country. After the election, Kushner found himself on the transition team, while Ivanka was known to be in her father's ear during the most important decisions that were being made. Despite this, neither had any actual role with the White House, at least up until the last few weeks. As it currently stands, Kushner is a leading voice in the administration, holding so much power that he is reportedly using that stroke to force Steve Bannon out of his job as Chief Strategist. In addition, Ivanka has landed herself a job as an adviser, though details surrounding the position have been left vague.

After Trump decided to send tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria last week in response to Bashar al-Assad launching a chemical weapons attack on his own people, reports came out suggesting that it was Ivanka who swayed the decision to strike. In response, MSNBC host Joy Reid took to Twitter on April 9 to throw shade at the First Family.

On Sunday, The Hill reported that North Korea and leader Kim Jong-un were not pleased with the United States' attack on Syria, but were using it to justify their nuclear weapons program.

"We will bolster up in every way our capability for self-defense to cope with the U.S. evermore reckless moves for a war," North Korea's state-run news outlet noted.

Reid's response

Re-tweeting the article and adding her own message was Joy Reid, who didn't hold back her thoughts when it came to Donald Trump and his family's influence in the White House. "Someone should explain to Jared the relationship btwn N. Korea, Syria & Iran so Jared can explain it to Ivanka & she can draw it for her dad," Reid wrote on her personal Twitter account. Reid's comments don't come as a complete surprise as she has become one of the president's most outspoken critics on cable news, which has resulted in her building up a growing fan base across multiple social media platforms.
