Eric Trump calls father's critics 'not even people'

Eric and his brother Donald Jr are running the family company while their father is in the White House.

By 2010, nine of the 17 board members of the Eric Trump Foundation were employees of, or had a financial stake in, the Trump Organization. Trump also seems to be under the false impression that his father is "great" for trying to take health care away from millions of people and withdrawing the USA from a significant climate deal.

"Mr. Trump had a cow", he told Forbes. At the worst, Eric Trump may have violated laws against self-dealing and misleading donors.

Charity experts told Forbes that the amount paid to the Trump Organization for a golf tournament fundraiser for St. Jude's "defy any reasonable cost".

Some may find Eric Trump's complaint about the erosion of morals ironic, since his father is frequently blamed for the collapse of American civic life, whether because of longstanding sexual misconduct allegations against him or mean-spirited attacks on Twitter against enemies both real and perceived.

Eric Trump took special aim at the Democratic Party, which he claimed is "imploding".

He dropped two shots on the back nine but also birdied the 15th to leave himself on four under for the tournament. Graeme Storm (68) and Max Orrin (73) of England and Benjamin Hebert (71) of France were three shots back.

'We paid third party cost and expenses and related items we could not get donated.

'Contrary to recent reports, at no time did the Trump Organization profit in any way from the foundation or any of its activities'. Forbes said that he has directed more than $11 million in donations there, and helped raise an additional $5 million for that hospital through events hosted by other groups. No credit?' And he went nuts. "He said, 'I don't care if it's my son or not - everybody gets billed.'" The costs continued to go up, from $142,000 in 2011, to the maximum of $322,000 in 2015. Although Eric Trump claimed that his family donates use of the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, N.Y., public records show that the club has accepted $1.2 million in payments over the years. "He flipped", said Ian Gillule, the former membership and marketing director of the Trump National Westchester golf course. Last year, the Washington Post found that Donald Trump had given away only about $7.8 million from his own pocket in the past few decades, despite Trump's repeated promises to give away millions more.

The man who, it was revealed this week, funneled money out of a charity for children with cancer and into his father's businesses, is saying Democrats and others who oppose Trump aren't people.

From 2009 to 2014, the president did not donate to the foundation at all, Forbes reports.

At the end of 2016, Trump stepped aside from all direct fundraising efforts for his eponymous organization, which was subsequently restructured and renamed.
