Announcement Date: May 18, 2017

Eric Trump told The Wall Street Journal he was “actually shocked” to be asked about his brother, Donald Trump, Jr.’s, meeting with the Trump Organization’s Dubai business partner. Two days earlier, the business partner, Hussain Sajwani, posted a picture on Instagram of him and Trump, Jr. having lunch, writing that the two had discussed “new ideas.” Asked if his father’s administration had been discussed by Trump, Jr. and Sajwani, Eric Trump said there was a “complete separation” between the Trump Organization and the White House.
