A new piece from The Atlantic claims a rivalry between Don Jr. and Ivanka
But Andrew Surabian, a former White House assistant who acts as spokesperson for Don Jr., tweeted in reply: "Why did @TheAtlantic refuse my name on behalf of Mr. Jr.?" on behalf of Don Jr. to print on the record statement in response to the fake & thinly produced piece? I have counted 25 copies of single sourcing or worse in McKay's piece. & # 39;
The McKay Coppins report quotes interviews with dozens of people around the Trumps, including friends, former employees, White House officials, and campaigners & # 39; when writing the story.
The article covers a period of nearly three years dating back to the 2016 presidential campaign to the current White House, focusing on the children of Trump and how they will behave in the family empire.
After Trump won in 2016, his children took different paths when it came to serving the family: Don Jr became a popular republican surrogate on the campaign track, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner joined the White House as advisors and Eric Trump focused on running the Trump organization, the real estate empire of the family.
The two oldest star in it the story of the Atlantic, detecting a collision between Don Jr. and Ivanka going back to the last presidential match and reporting that as Don Jr. & # 39; s public persona grew thanks to his time on the campaign track, the rivalry between him and Ivanka increased.
The article claims that Don Jr. and Ivanka had become & # 39; paranoid that the henchmen of the other were planting harmful stories about them in the press & # 39; and that Don Jr. confronted his sister.
& # 39; Tell your people to stop throwing me at the media, & # 39; he said, someone familiar with the conversation told it magazine.
White House Communications Deputy Director, Jessica Ditto, told Dailymail. com she gave a statement to the Atlantic denying any tension, but the magazine didn't run.
& # 39; This is all false and a thin single anonymous source will not succeed in creating a break in the family & # 39 ;, Ditto said.
However, the play mentions spokespersons for the family and notes them & # 39; contested this account and denied that there is a gap between & # 39; the brothers and sisters.
It was also claimed that there was a battle between the eldest son and Ivanka, along with Kushner, to lead the campaign.
Two republican agents working for the campaign claimed the now infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 – set up by Don Jr with campaign officials and a Russian lawyer with connections to the Kremlin who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton – was the son's oldest attempt to try and take over.
& # 39; The Trump Tower meeting was Don's move to take over the campaign & # 39 ;, a former assistant told magazine. & # 39; He tried to show his father that he was competent. & # 39;
A spokesperson for Donald Trump Jr. told the magazine that & # 39; fiction & # 39; used to be.
President Trump has also reportedly blasted Don Jr. for the meeting.
& # 39; He is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, & # 39; said the president.
& # 39; He was not angry with Don & # 39 ;, a former White House official told the magazine. & # 39; It was more like accepting his son's idiocy. & # 39;
The Trump campaign was acquitted by special counsel Robert Mueller after his investigation of the campaign's activities of any allegations of collusion with Russia.

Surabian, spokesperson for Don Jr., called the Atlantic editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg on Twitter about the play. & # 39; Is this what you call journalism, @JeffreyGoldberg? & # 39; He wrote.
Surabian also posted his statement that he gave to the Atlantic: "I never thought that The Atlantic's reporting standards would be below the standards of any tabloid I have ever dealt with." McKay & # 39; s report belongs to the category of three people who today cover the political scene: Michael Wolf, Gabe Sherman and now McKay Coppins. I am astonished that the Atlantic would carry out its reporting, which in the most sensational case is based on a single source, which was in the fictional room, of the fictional scene describing the alleged source with regard to Don Jr. and Ivanka Trump. McKay has no details about where this fictional conversation took place, when this fictional conversation took place or if there are witnesses to this fictional conversation. Ask yourself why it is, & he said.
In the meantime, Don Jr. a hit on the campaign track, and he sought out republican republicans who enjoyed hunting and wearing jeans and boots. He demonstrated the ability to stir up the crowd of #MAGA, as Trump supporters are known, and flourished in throwing up the red meat conservatives who had been thrown out of the run-up to the elections.
& # 39; You can finally do something for me, & # 39; Trump said to his oldest, a former assistant told magazine.

Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle were regularly present on the campaign track
Before joining the White House, Ivanka Trump focused on the family's business empire. She had her own clothing line, a jewelry connection and a book deal.
She appeared routinely on NBC & # 39; s & # 39; The Apprentice & # 39; next to her father.
But when the elections ended, she chose to become a figure in his administration and close her business to work on policy initiatives such as paid family leave. She also worked to promote women's economic problems and accompanied her father on the world stage during meetings with fellow leaders.
However, part of it was fired, such as when she was mocked in July after a video of her trying to communicate with foreign leaders went viral.
In the video, Ivanka Trump was in conversation with the then British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron and Christine Lagarde, director of the International Monetary Fund.
Lagarde gives a mystical response to a comment from Ivanka, who launched a thousand memes that mock the first daughter.
Ivanka Trump has touted success at the White House, including her claim that she has registered companies for 12 million new jobs for training opportunities, and Trump has bragged about his daughter's skills. He has recommended her to high-profile jobs such as U.N. ambassador and head of the World Bank – neither of which have succeeded.
Don Jr. has meanwhile speculated a lot that he is going to politics.
He and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle are regularly present on the campaign track.
His name has been announced on many occasions – also for offices in New York, where he lives, and Montana, where he hunts.
Don Jr. told DailyMailTV in October 2018 that one day he could work for the office.
He said he would never exclude anything. … I enjoy the campaign. & # 39;
A republican senator told President Trump that without Don Jr. & # 39; s work in 2018 the party may not have held the senate, the Atlantic Ocean reported.
& # 39; I believe it, & # 39; Trump would have responded.

In the play, the president also reportedly expressed frustration with his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who acts as a senior advisor in the White House, whose portfolio includes reform of the criminal justice and peace process in the Middle East.
Trump would be furious in 2017 about a report that Kushner used a private e-mail server to do business with the government.
& # 39; How can he be so stupid? & # 39; Trump fumed, according to a White House official who was present. & # 39; That's what Hillary did! & # 39;
Trump has repeatedly & # 39; Crooked Hillary & # 39; on the 2016 campaign track for the use of a private e-mail server during her time as state secretary.
& # 39; Shut her up, & # 39; his crowd of supporters usually shouted.
