Eric, Donald, Jr. and Ivanka asked their dad to tone it down before the election.
“The three of them met and went to see their dad in his Fifth Ave. office. They showed a lot of respect, but told him he’s worked too long and too hard to build up the reputation he has. They understand completely he’s always been outspoken and that he likes attention, but this is too much,” says a source who knew about the mid-October meeting.
Trump’s rep denies any such meeting ever took place…
As for Obama as a target, the “kids said they know it’s not helping,” says the source. “They told him you can’t throw this all away on this nonsense.”
Since the kids are the future of Trump’s empire, the insider adds, they are also worried for themselves.
“They want their dad to get respect and then the whole family does well,” the source says.
Trump’s rep called the story “completely untrue,” telling us that Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka love his use of “free speech” and would never try to rein in their father.
“They would never ever do that. It never happened. It’s simply untrue,” the rep stressed.
