Donald Trump's sons, Eric and Donald Jr., went on "Good Morning America" to promote a new hotel chain in Mississippi that is based off his campaign slogan.

Donald Trump's son, Eric, claimed that Donald Trump's critics are "not even people" during an interview with conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity. He went on to blame the Democratic Party (which is in the minority in both the House and Senate) for sabotaging his dad's agenda.
Donald Trump took money meant for St. Jude's Children's Hospital and transferred it to the Trump Organization, a "charity" that has come under major scrutiny by state and federal regulators.

Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump along with two other investors created a charity called Opening Day Foundation that is selling access to Donald Trump on and around inauguration day.

Donald Trump's son Eric claimed that the Presidential recount in Wisconsin will kill "at least 5,000 children." The baseless claim is taken from a Forbes article that suggested the Green Party should have spent the money they are for the recount on malaria prevention for children instead.
