Eric Trump allegedly revealed in a 2014 interview that Russia funded the family’s golf resorts ‘all the time’.
The President also reportedly told the same journalist that the family had “access to $100 million” for their newest course in North Carolina.
Golf writer James Dodson revealed the claims this month in an interview with a Boston radio station – explaining that he had met Donald Trump and his son three years ago when he was invited to play golf at their Trump National Charlotte course.
Mr Dodson said he had asked the now-President how he had secured funding for the courses and Mr Trump ‘sort of tossed off that he had access to $100 million’.
The journalist then followed up with Eric Trump – who was also on the resort that day – during a ride in a golf cart.
