A Trump never admits his mistakes!
Which is why Donald Trump Jr. broke the family creed by admitting he “probably would have done things a little differently” after tweeting the email chain that exposed his meeting with Russian officials in 2016.
A source who knows the family well told People:
“Those are not words normally heard from a Trump… [Donald Sr.] doesn’t like failure and mistakes, and he doesn’t accept them. You have to justify your existence to be in his realm.”
It’s no surprise that the child most in the president’s realm is Ivanka Trump, who never would have made such a mistake — let alone admit it afterwards!
Unlike his White House adviser sister, who has always been daddy’s favorite, Don Jr. has had a tougher time adapting to the First Family spotlight.
Despite vocalizing support for his dad on social media, the 39-year-old is reportedly “miserable” running the family business with his little bro Eric Trump and would rather escape Manhattan to live a simple life in the mountains hunting big game. The source added:
“Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable.”
Sounds like he and Melania Trump are living a similar struggle!
Usually, Don Jr. will spend weekends in a rustic cabin upstate with his wife Vanessa and their five kids — unless, of course, he’s planning on meeting with Russian lawyers to get dirt on Hillary Clinton, as his emails have confirmed.
Some legal experts consider Junior’s emails treason. Though family friends know the businessman’s loyalty doesn’t lie with his country, but with his father — and will continue to stay that way.
A friend close to Don Jr. and Eric said:
“The loyalty within this family is insane. They would never speak against their dad├óΓé¼┬ª You can’t bite the hand that feeds you, but [Don Jr.] can’t wait for these four years to be over.”
Same here, DJ. Same here.
