The CIA ends aid to Syrian rebels, the U.S. looks at sanctions against Venezuela and Iran, and the shooting of an Australian in Minnesota raises questions on two continents.
President Donald Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., have long been ardent supporters of their father. They’ve appeared on television and at rallies backing his campaign and presidency, and they’ve agreed to lead the family business while he’s in the White House.
Unlike their sister, Ivanka, the sons do not have official White House roles, but that doesn’t mean their paths don’t intersect with the administration’s. Donald Jr. has admitted to holding a meeting last year with a Kremlin-connected attorney who was promising to give the Trump campaign damaging information about Hillary Clinton. And his statements about the meeting have contradicted some of the White House’s claims.
With the presidential progeny making headlines, we look at Donald Junior and Eric — and separate scions fiction from fact.
