PRESIDENT-ELECT Trump has placated critics by replacing son-in-law Jared Kushner as senior adviser with his 10-year-old son, Barron Trump.
The 70-year-old said he perfectly understood criticism of his earlier appointment, given that Kushner is “not even a blood Trump.”
He continued: “Fair. Okay, media? Fair point. The guy’s an in-law. He married my daughter but he doesn’t have genetic greatness. I accept that.
“Little Barron may just be a boy but I’d made my first million by his age, he’s pure Trump 100 per cent, and he’s easily as mature and stable as I am.
“He’s great at the cyber, he likes holding onto the nuclear button when I’m tweeting, and he’s gonna be so incredible at beating ISIS it’ll make your head spin.”
Barron said: “I like the army men. Let’s make the army men have a really big war.”
