You know what’s the greatest? The Trump Organization. Did 30 deals between 2006 and 2016. Incredible, beautiful deals. You’ve never seen deals so good. Deals for hotels. Deals for golf courses. The best golf courses in the world. Very, very amazing.
But you know what’s really very, very amazing? It was all set to do more. But now, it has to settle for being slightly less great and incredible because, even though conflicts of interest do not exist, they are still keeping President Trump’s son from surpassing his father.
While the company’s revenue and income are expected to continue to rise during Mr. Trump’s term in office, it will likely be at a slower rate, Eric Trump said, because of efforts to separate the Trump presidency from the family businesses. “We would be doing 30 deals across the globe” were his father not the president, Eric Trump said in an interview….
He said he appreciates the company had to give up new foreign deals because of the “optics” of doing business overseas. “You can’t be trying to build the tallest building in Israel while trying to negotiate Middle East peace,” he said.
