Donald Trump Jr. flew to Indonesia this week to help cut the ribbon on two new Trump-branded resorts. When he was there, he told
reporters that the idea that the president’s business interests in the
country would affect American policy was “totally asinine.” But even as
Trump Jr. dismissed the potential for a conflict of interest, his
father’s business partner, Indonesian billionaire and political
impresario Hary Tanoesoedibjo, explicitly promoted the event as a visit
from the US president’s son.
