Donald Trump refuted media allegations of purportedly asking the government to provide a top-level security clearance for his children.
US President-elect Donald Trump denied on Tuesday media reports suggesting that he had asked to provide a top-level security clearance for his children.
I am not trying to get "top level security clearance" for my children. This was a typically false news story.

On Monday, CBS News reported that Trump had asked the government about the possibility of how to get Eric, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Jared Kushner top secret clearance.
The four have roles on Trump’s transition team, but are not expected to play a role in a future Trump administration, according to media reports. Other media reports indicate that Trump’s children will run his businesses and also work as unpaid national security advisers.
