THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION, 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE NW, WASHINGTON — In today’s Politico, veteran reporter Darren Samuelsohn clearly describes how Donald Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric Trump, are making money for their father and for themselves because of where their father is spending some portion of his time these days.
In theory, Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are not supposed to talk with their father about government issues, but that doesn’t stop them from raising money for Republican causes, or from supporting his ill-considered polices in public.
So we asked associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones to ask Trump Sr. whether he is happy or unhappy with his sons’ activities all around the world, and whether he ever talks with them about their work running The Trump Organization. Immediately, Trump Sr. called his two adult sons and learned directly from them that they are both sitting on the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building and the tallest structure in the world. When Trump Sr. asked them why in Allah'’s name they are there, they manfully shrugged their shoulders and said, “Pops, we just met with our Dubai counterpart, Crown Prince Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He’s only 34 years old and when this incredible Burj Khalifa was opened, he went to its top floor to waive the UAE flag. He’s just given us permission to put one of your incredible casinos right there in the Burj Khalifa, the day after you move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem!
Trump Sr. smiled, congratulated both his boys, and immediately told Jones, “I’m having a great time running not only America and making it First, I’m also having a wonderful time running the world! And I hope you’re having a good time following me around wherever I go.”
Jones stifled a guffaw.
