It’s a wrong and stupid move.
What is his expertise in regarding the national briefings?
Is he conservative?
Does he have vast experience in foreign and domestic affairs that he could offer so much to Trump?
Bad bad bad.
I read that the security clearance is necessary to have access to the qualifications summaries that have been prepared on the individuals who have applied for many of the positions.
I am not trying to get "top level security clearance" for my children. This was a typically false news story.

Granted, this tweet qualifies the clearance as "top level," and it may be that Trump is seeking a lower level of clearance for family that he wants to have advising him on transition.
Adding some confusion to the story, Trump Transition Team Now Admits Request for Trump Kids' Security Clearances, Blames on "Low-Level Staffer" - Patterico@RedState
The Trump transition team is saying that a low-level staffer requested security clearances for three of Donald Trump's children, according to a top aide.
According to the aide, the request was made "without authorization" and the staffer, who is no longer with the team, "overstepped his boundaries."
Tempest in a teapot.
