Where the key players from the 2016 campaign are now

A world of change has swept over Washington in the wake of the 2016 presidential election, and the upcoming 100th day of the Trump administration makes for a good mark to check in on some familiar faces from the trail.

Here’s a round-up of some of the best-known characters from the campaign with updates of what they’re doing these days.

Donald Trump: In the White House

The former real estate mogul and reality TV star is now settled into his latest address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Trump’s 100th day in office comes this Saturday, and his team has been touting their accomplishments throughout the week, talking about the executive actions Trump has signed and the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

The first lady has hosted a handful of events in Washington and been by her husband’s side for a number of appearances, but she has not become a fixture in the White House — at least not yet. She made it clear soon after the election that she would be staying in New York through the school year so that the couple’s young son, Barron, wouldn’t have his schedule interrupted.

The choice to have the first couple live separately has not come cheap, with security for Trump Tower costing between $127,000 and $146,000 per day according to an estimate by the New York Police Department. That cost increases to an average of $308,000 when the president is in New York.

President Trump‘s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump was a regular presence on the campaign trail, and that continued through the start of her father’s presidential term.

She posted frequent updates on social media showing her inclusion in roundtable discussions and at official events alongside her father, but it wasn’t until the end of March that she was given a formal title of “assistant to the president.” The title came after her receipt of security clearance, a government-issued device and a White House office. She is now legally responsible for upholding government ethics rules, though she is not taking a salary.
