When certain people call the White House, they get put straight through to President Donald Trump.
This list of “cleared callers” includes Trump’s kids, but also billionaire businessmen he’s counted as his friends for years.

The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
Trump Jr., 40, assumed leadership of the Trump Organization along with his brother Eric after the 2016 election and has no formal role in the White House.
During the campaign, Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower — a meeting that the Senate Intelligence Committee and the special counsel Robert Mueller are investigating as part of their probes into Kremlin meddling in the election.
As a staunch and loyal advocate for his father, Trump Jr. also frequently stirs up controversy and offense on social media.
The president’s son, Eric Trump
Eric, 34, was active in the Trump 2016 campaign and has since remained a top executive at the Trump Organization with his brother.
Trump campaign associate Brad Parscale called Eric a “joint deputy campaign manager” along with his brother-in-law Jared Kushner, whose approvals were required for every decision before the 2016 election.
He, too, is a loyal advocate for his father, occasionally appearing on news programs and also defending him on social media.
