Donald Trump’s son Eric doubled down on recent comments about nepotism, saying he believes nepotism is a “beautiful thing” just days after saying it was “kind of a factor of life.”
“You trust the people who are closest to you. Who is he going to trust most to run a company? He is going to trust somebody who he trusts implicitly,” he said in an interview with The Telegraph.
Eric Trump said his father “knows I deeply care about the properties, our amazing teams. And he knows I’m going to do everything I can humanly possible to take care of that.”
“Is that nepotism? Absolutely. Is that also a beautiful thing? Absolutely,” he continued. “Family business is a beautiful thing. The same applies for Ivanka. Ivanka is by his side in Washington.”
Ivanka Trump was given an official White House title last month and serves as an unpaid senior adviser with security clearance in her father’s administration.
