Who is Donald Trump Jr.? He currently serves as a trustee and executive director of the Trump Organization and is a big booster for his dad’s political agenda. But their relationship wasn’t always so close. Junior is the son of Trump’s first wife Ivana who divorced him because of his affair with Marla Maples. He reportedly didn’t speak to his father for over a year and, while attending his father’s alma mater, he partied pretty hard.
He later joined his father’s business in real estate development, and even continued the Trump legacy of judging Miss USA pageants.
He joined the campaign trail with his father. In the heat of the race, Rob Goldstone, a publicist with close ties to the Russian government offered him compromising information on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government. He was told via email “…the document would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father…”
He responded saying” If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.” On June 9th, 2016, Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, a Russian-American lobbyist, and potentially others, met with a Russian lawyer at Trump Towers. This meeting has since been called “treasonous,” and has put his legal dealings in question.
