Trump Sons Backpedal on Selling Access to Donald
These are hard times for the Trump clan. First they had to cancel auctioning off a coffee date with Ivanka, and now they’re having to back off on the plan to sell access to Unpresidented-elect Donald Trump:
The invitation made an extraordinary offer: Donors willing to write a check for $500,000 to $1 million would be granted access to Donald J. Trump the day after he is sworn in as president, along with the opportunity to participate in a multiday hunting or fishing trip with his oldest sons, Donald Jr. and Eric.
But on Tuesday, the Trump Organization put out a statement distancing the family from the fund-raiser, saying the event had “not been approved or pursued by the Trump family,” even though legal documents show that Eric Trump served on the board of directors of the recently formed charity behind it, the Opening Day Foundation.
Legal papers, board of directors, names on published invitations, but nope, they had nothing to do with it. So … fake news. Moving along now.
