Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump must undergo training to ensure they don't engage in fraud in the future.

President Donald Trump’s eldest three children have agreed to mandatory training to ensure they avoid defrauding charitable organizations in the future, after their father’s foundation was shuttered due to misuse of funds.

Quoting The New York Times, RawStory reported that Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump “were ordered to undergo mandatory training to ensure they do not engage in similar misconduct” as part of a settlement with the New York State Attorney General’s office.

All three Trump children were officers at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which prosecutors accused of “fraudulently misappropriating funds for the president’s personal expenses.”

As part of the settlement, the president paid $2 million to eight charities as restitution and had to admit that he had misused foundation funds for his personal political campaign, as well as other personal expenses.

Those included using foundation money to “pay off his businesses’ legal expenses, and to buy a $10,000 portrait of himself that wound up being displayed at one of his Florida hotels.”
