President Trumps old office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan sits unoccupied now, unofficial storage space for the gathering trove of memorabilia that his two oldest sons say they hope will eventually be turned over to their fathers presidential library.
But just one flight down, in Eric and Donald Trump Jr.s cramped offices, their father is ever-present in the seven copies of a recent issue of Golf Digest with his photo and the headline Golfer-in-Chief on the cover stacked on Erics desk; in his visage looping endlessly on CNN (yes, they watch CNN); in the cardboard cutout of the president watching from behind a stash of blueprints in the corner.
This is the conundrum facing the two brothers as they assume control of the empire their father built: How do they move forward, and navigate the ethical shoals, at a business predicated entirely on the brand of the man they have vowed to distance themselves from?

Anyone who worked for their alpha male Father knows how even a decade after he’s gone, he still looms over every decision ( in a good way )

I remember playing American tanks vs German tanks in the mid-seventies when I was six or seven and he told me no no, the German tanks are now Russian tanks :).
I’m betting that in 8 years their father will be back at the helm, or at least Chairman Emeritus of the company. Donald Trump can’t do nothing and remain sane, and will likely have had more than his fill of the slimy world of politics by then...so what else would there be to do except go back to his old job? His father lived to 93, and his mother to 88 - so he’ll have a LOT of years left.
Haha! Is that real or a Photoshop job?
That’s a PhotoShop.
