The daughters of both candidates have married nice Jewish boys. Bill and Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea, is married to the investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, while Trump’s daughter, Ivanka is married to Jared Kushner who is principal owner of a real estate company and publisher of the weekly New York Observer. She converted to Judaism.

How much influence they may have on the policies of their in-laws remains to be seen. Mezvinsky is known to support his mother-in-laws policies, and Kushner helped write a pro-Israel speech for Trump and is said to advise him on matters pertaining to the Jewish state. He is also a practicing Orthodox Jew who is raising his children Jewish.
