In Trump We Trust

The Real Deal

Barbara Lawrence was quoted in The Real Deal regarding the Trump Organization's trust agreement. Trump’s younger son, Eric was named chairman of the advisory board that’s supposed to work with the trust, but lawyers said the structure in place provides little clarity about who’s in charge of the assets held by the trust, as advisory boards tend to give advice rather than make decisions. Lawrence explained, “sometimes there’s an investment advisory committee who advises the trustees, but the trustees would be the ones with ultimate authority in terms of how to act.”
