From Think Progress:

There’s supposed to be a firewall between President Trump and the business he continues to own, which is being run by his his two adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr. Both Trump Sr. and Eric have recently made public statements about their commitment to making sure the presidency doesn’t becoming a money-making venture for the Trump family.

But there’s already been indications that firewall isn’t as firm as it should be.

During a February interview with Forbes, Eric admitted that he plans to give his father quarterly financial updates about how Trump’s sprawling business empire is doing. And earlier this week, Donald Jr. told the Associated Press he “has spoken to his father more frequently in recent weeks.”

  1. Heh…good luck with that flagging presidency thing. I have a feeling it will turn into such a dumpster fire in the end, the Trump brand will be damaged for years to come.
