    Exclamation Junior, Eric and Ivanka - Profiting off Daddy's Name

    Why no criticism of these three? They're raking in millions for basically the same thing Hunter Biden did: profit (supposedly*) off their daddy's name.

    How Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump Have Profited Off Their Dad's Presidency


    No one knows a “clear conflict of interest” when they see it better than the president's children.

    As House Democrats continue their impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump’s efforts to leverage foreign aid for political favors, among his most ardent defenders, as usual, are Trump’s adult sons Donald Jr. and Eric.
    “Why didn’t @JoeBiden recuse himself from dealing with Ukraine?” Don Jr. tweeted recently. “His son was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company that had been investigated by the prosecutor who Joe pushed to be fired.” This, Don Jr. argued, created the “appearance of impropriety,” and constituted a “clear conflict of interest.”


    Eric was similarly critical of this arrangement in an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show on October 2. Hunter, Biden’s son, “didn’t know anything about the industry he was in,” Eric protested. “He didn’t have any discernible duties, and he’s getting paid $50,000 a month? And then he gets $1.5 billion from China? Laura, it’s insane.”


    Again, this sequence of events is not especially flattering for Hunter Biden, and at the time, according to The New Yorker, White House aides expressed concern that he could be seen as “leveraging access for his benefit.” But in Trumpworld, this string of loosely-associated buzzwords is now enough to sustain a conspiracy theory that the younger Biden has earned “millions.”
    Setting aside the alternative facts underlying the Trump kids’ criticisms, however, their decision to wade into this controversy is notable for a different reason: During their father’s tenure as president, Don Jr. and Eric have repeatedly managed to cash in on their newfound positions of political privilege in their business dealings. So, too, have their sister Ivanka and brother-in-law Jared Kushner, both of whom hold senior positions in the administration and whose companies and investment portfolios netted them anywhere between $29 million and $135 million last year, per their financial disclosure forms. Here are some of the highlights of when the family's business intertwining with government affairs constituted the “appearance of impropriety” and “conflict of interest.”

    Ah No you are wrong. It is not the same thing. Their father (Donald Trump) was buidling brand and business in the real world and they grew up in that.

    Joe Biden was never anything other than a politican. He was builiding contacts on the part of the American people that Hunter took advantage of .

    Maybe you can show where any of Trumps kids or Son in Law got a Special TANF loan. Maybe.....but I doubt it.

    The Trump children are accomplished businessmen. Hunter Biden is just an alcoholic drug addict and was never anything else.

    From Wiki:
    Junior's CV:


    Career


    After graduating from Penn in 2000, Trump moved to Aspen, Colorado, where he hunted, fished, skied, lived in a truck, and worked as a bartender for a year, before returning to join the Trump Organization in New York. Trump has supervised building projects, which included 40 Wall Street, Trump International Hotel and Tower, and Trump Park Avenue,[16] In 2006 he helped launch Trump Mortgage, which collapsed less than a year later.[10] In 2010 he became a spokesperson for Cambridge Who's Who, a public relations firm that had received hundreds of complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau.[10] He appeared as a guest adviser and judge on many episodes of his father's reality television show The Apprentice, from season 5 in 2006 to his father's last season in 2015.[17]

    Eric Trump:


    Career

    The Trump Organization


    Trump c. 2009

    Trump is executive vice president of development and acquisitions of the Trump Organization.[10] He worked with his sister, Ivanka, to redesign and renovate Trump National Doral and its Blue Monster course in Miami, Florida.[11]
    In 2013, Trump received Wine Enthusiast Magazine's "Rising Star of the Year" Award.[12]
    Amid the Trump-Ukraine scandal – where President Trump asked the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden – Eric Trump strongly criticized Hunter Biden, accusing him of nepotism. Eric Trump claimed that unlike Hunter Biden, "When my father became president, our family stopped doing international business deals." However, when Trump became president, rather than place his assets in a blind trust, he made Eric a top executive in the family business, which has continued to operate and promote business deals across the world during Trump's presidency.[13][14][15][16][17][18] PolitiFact and the Washington Post fact-checker rated Eric Trump's assertion that the Trump family "got out of all international business" as false.[19][20] PolitiFact noted that not only has the Trump family engaged in international business dealings since Trump became president, but that some of the Trump children, including Eric, have openly celebrated their international business activities during that time.[19]
    In October 2019, Eric Trump complained about the Bidens, "Why is it that every family goes into politics and enriches themselves?" Shortly before he made that statement, President Trump had decided that the G-7 summit would be held at the Trump Doral resort, which was owned by the Trump family business. President Trump reversed his decision amid bipartisan condemnation from Republicans and Democrats.[21][22]

    Ivanka Trump:


    Career

    Business

    Trump briefly worked for Forest City Enterprises as a real estate project manager.[24] In 2005, she joined the family business as Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at the Trump Organization.[25]
    In 2007, she formed a partnership with Dynamic Diamond Corp., the company of diamond vendor Moshe Lax, to create Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, a line of diamond and gold jewelry sold at her first flagship retail store in Manhattan.[26][27] In November 2011, her retail flagship moved from Madison Avenue to 109 Mercer Street, a larger space in the fashionable SoHo district.[28][29]
    In December 2012, members of 100 Women in Hedge Funds elected Ivanka Trump to their board.[30]
    On October 2, 2015, it was reported that "Ivanka Trump's flagship store on Mercer Street appear[s] to be closed" and, noting that the shop had been "stripped clean".[31] In October 2016, the only dedicated retail shop and flagship boutique for Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry was located at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York City, with her brand also being available at Hudson's Bay and fine-jewelry stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.[32]
    She also had her own line of Ivanka Trump fashion items, including clothes, handbags, shoes, and accessories, available in major U.S. and Canadian department stores including Macy's and Hudson's Bay.[33] Her brand was criticized for allegedly copying designs by other designers,[34][35] and by PETA and other animal rights activists for using fur from rabbits.[36][37] In 2016, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled Ivanka Trump-branded scarves because they did not meet federal flammability standards.[38][39] A 2016 analysis found that most of the fashion line was produced outside the U.S.[40] Ivanka Trump-brand shoes have been supplied by Chengdu Kameido Shoes in Sichuan and Hangzhou HS Fashion (via G-III Apparel Group) in Zhejiang.[41]
    On February 2, 2017, after months of customers boycotting and poor sales,[42] department store chains Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom dropped Trump's fashion line, citing "poor performance."[43]
    On February 9, 2017, presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway controversially encouraged Fox News viewers to purchase Trump's retail products.[44] In June 2017, three people with the organization called China Labor Watch were arrested by Chinese authorities while investigating Huajian International, which makes shoes for several American brands, including Ivanka Trump's brand. The Trump Administration called for their release.[45][46]
    On July 24, 2018, Trump announced that she shut down her company after deciding to pursue a career in public policy instead of returning to her fashion business.[47][48]

    WOW! Why don't you DEMONIZE HIM?
    As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. --H.L. Mencken,

    The Trump enterprises have done very well, and way before Donald Trump became President. Unlike the Clintons, or Obamas, this family doesn't need the White House to become wealthy.

    Trumps filed bankruptcy five (?) times, Ivanka’s company went belly up, Junior had the Titan Atlas failure, and Eric ran the Trump organization. Nuff said there.
