The children, who will naturally inherit their father’s wealth, seem to be aware of how their father’s tarnished reputation can hurt their dad’s — and eventually their — business:
“They want their dad to get respect and then the whole family does well,” the insider added.

With Trump’s calls for his birth certificate becoming increasingly aggressive and insulting — clouding many of the dire economic issues that needed attention at the time — President Obama released his long form birth certificate in April 2011, rightfully criticizing the media for fixating on such “silliness”:
