Trump's trust lets him take money at any time
Press secretary Sean Spicer was asked during the daily White House press briefing if Trump has reached across the aisle to Democrats more than a week after the House GOP's healthcare bill fell flat because of opposition from Democrats and the conservative House Freedom Caucus. A little expression covered somewhere down in an arrangement of as of late discharged letters between the Trump Organization and the government administration indicates exactly how little partition there really is.
According to the newly reported documents, the change to the trust provides that the trustees "shall distribute net income or principal to Donald J. Trump at his request, as Trustees deem necessary for his maintenance, support to uninsured medical expenses, or as the Trustees deem appropriate".
There is no stipulation requiring that Trump disclose any of these transactions between he and his trustees (his son, Donald Jr. and the company's Chief Financial Officer, Allen Weisselberg), and so he could theoretically benefit directly from his businesses while in office without the public ever knowing. That is on the grounds that both the trust and Trump Organization are secretly held.
But Trump's son, Eric, whom the filing calls "chairman of the advisory board for the trust", told Forbes last month he intends to update his father on the business quarterly, adding, "My father and I are very close". Spicer also dismissed ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit journalism organization that has won three Pulitzer Prizes, as a "left-wing blog".

"It makes a somewhat meaningless trust agreement all the more meaningless", said Larry Noble, general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, a nonprofit watchdog group.
Mr. Trump has pledged to get reports only on the Trump Organization's basic financial performance, although that has no force of law.
The original trust document, ProPublica said, did not contain language limiting when the president could request money from the trust, though it did say Trump was the "exclusive beneficiary". Eric Trump is the President of a large number of The Trump Organization's operating companies and is the Chairman of the Advisory Board.
Obviously, the income from his businesses would benefit Trump, affording him the luxury he is accustomed to. Things are always delegated in business, down to who the hotel clerk is at the Trump hotel.
