President Trump's two sons and his daughter-in-law met with Republican leaders Thursday to discuss strategy ahead of the next two elections.
Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Eric's wife, Lara, met with GOP leaders at the Republican National Committee's headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The trio stayed for roughly two hours and discussed the Republican Party's strategy ahead of the 2018 midterm elections and 2020 presidential race, the Washington Post reported.
Trump's two sons and his daughter-in-law volunteered for Trump's campaign, and Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., now run the Trump Organization.
According to the Washington Post, there is disagreement among Republicans as to whether the meeting with the three family members was appropriate.
The Washington Post said the meeting bothered two prominent Republicans who were briefed on the gathering. But two others familiar with the session said it was appropriate for Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Lara Trump to shed light on what they believe would be helpful to the president before the next contests.
In addition to the Trump family members, RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, RNC chief of staff Sara Armstrong, former Trump campaign digital strategist Brad Parscale, and Trump campaign committee director Michael Glassner attended the meeting.
Former White House deputy chief of staff Kate Walsh, who advises a nonprofit group that backs Trump, was also in attendance.
The meeting follows a slew of reports involving Trump, his closest advisers, and alleged ties to Russian officials, and the revelations are occurring as the FBI continues to investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.
The latest, from the Washington Post, said the president's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner asked Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak to set up secret communication channels with the Kremlin and the Trump transition team.
Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said Saturday he wouldn't be concerned about backchannels Kushner was attempting to set up with Russia.
