Eric Trump is the second son of the 2016 US President-elect Donald Trump. He is married to Lara Yunaska since the last two years. Eric has basically affiliated with his father’s empire the Trump Organisation and is the current vice-president of development and acquisitions.
Eric Trump is estimated to have a net worth of 150 million dollars – much less than that of his father. In 2011, Donald Trump had bought a 6.2-million-dollar vineyard and winery in Virginia estate. Later, he probably sold, or gave, the property to Eric Trump. Eric lives in Trump Parc East’s apartment which is valued at slightly more than 2 million dollars, featuring three well-furnished rooms. Besides, Eric and Lara also own a house in Westchester and an apartment in Central Park South building.
Eric also manages the 18 Golf courses owned by his father and is known for an expansion of hotel business in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and other commercial cities.
Besides his involvement in the Trump Organisation, Eric is also a philanthropist and founder of Eric Trump foundation which is assumed to have donated more than 28 million dollars to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since 2006. However, Eric has frequently been accused of misuse of the funds raised during the charity events at the Trump Golf courses. Reportedly, the money raised was primarily used to cover the costs of the events although the foundation claims to have donated 100% of it.
Despite some prevailing controversies, Eric Trump is undoubtedly the next face of Trump empire. He isn’t one of the ’20 Most Important Young Philanthropists’ and ’Top 30 under 30’, published by Forbes, for nothing.
