1A Huge Loss
To prove his commitment to transparency and good governance, Eric Trump confirms that he will not take new donations for his foundation amid allegations of selling access to his father.
The son of President-elect Donald Trump runs the Eric Trump Foundation (ETF), a charity for terminally ill children.
Interestingly, Eric also considers stepping out of the management and let ETF run without him.
This is after Trump Sr. made an earlier move to shy away from conflict of interest worries.
Veteran board member Andrew Joblon pointed out that the only ones losing in this decision are the children. He stressed that Eric, and the rest of the Trump family, never used the foundation to leverage their business relationships.
Joblon even assured Eric that they could resume their efforts once his father is out of office.
“Fighting childhood cancer is a cause that has been central to my life since I was 21 years old,” Eric told the Associated Press.
