Having the von Trumps running the show isn't exactly a surprise, as it would be impossible for Trump to split his time between running his businesses and running the country. The choice to bequeath his business to his three protegés seems logical—that way he can still have a big hand (pun intended) in controlling what is done with his business ventures without officially holding the CEO title. Just think of Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric as three little marionettes being controlled by the tiny hands of the president. Who's the puppet now?
