Eric Trump just made a massive announcement sure to put a smile on President Trump’s face. Erik keeps a low profile. He prefers it that way and goes quietly about his business.
He did make brief national news when his huge $10 million-dollar donation to St Jude’s Children Hospital was revealed. It was a good story, a good result for the kids and for a while the media treated it as such.
But then the media had to find fault and created a scandal around nothing. They tried to tie his foundation, which gave the donation to the corrupt Clinton foundation.
It was a bogus charge rebutted by Richard C. Shadyac Jr., president of the St Jude’s who wrote,
“I am amazed by the many ways that you have personally embraced our cause for our children and families.”
“As you are aware, we are expanding our lifesaving work and are working to push cure rates even higher in this country and around the world, while improving the lives of survivors by developing and advancing treatments that reduce side effects. We are only able to do this because of the support provided by donors and supporters like you.”
Today, Eric Trump and his wife, Lara Trump, said they are expecting their first child.
“We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool,” Eric, 33, told People. Lara is in her second trimester and says that she feels great now after a rough couple of months.
“I was exhausted in the beginning,” she says. “It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me.”
“It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”
The couple haven’t decided on a name yet, “We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” says Eric.
Added Lara, “We sort of screwed ourselves over there.”
This will be Donald Trump’s ninth grandchild.
