Eric Trump said he had decided to stop directly soliciting contributions to the foundation because he now recognized donors could be seeking access to his father. “As unfortunate as it is, I understand the quagmire,” Trump told the Times. “You do a good thing that backfires.”
The Trump siblings’ “Opening Day” gala offers attendees the chance, for a mere $500,000 to $1 million, to take a picture with Trump himself. Big money donors at that level will also get a chance to go hunting with Don Jr. and/or Eric, who are well-known for their history of killing beautiful, endangered exotic wildlife.
