Proving the old adage that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, a new report suggests that Donald Trump Jr. and his brother, Eric, are indeed grifters just like their old man, and even demanded a stake in his Truth Social company even though they played no role in the formation of the social media site which has been plagued by financial problems since it went live in February.
Will Wilkerson, a co-founder of Truth Social, told The Washington Post that Don Jr. and Eric asked for a “handout” even though they deserved nothing.
Wilkerson was one of the very first Trump Media & Technology Group employees and later served as vice president of operations until Thursday when he was forced off the board by the ex-president. Why?
