Trump Jr. says report of family getting Hawkins County property ‘not true’

In a Tuesday afternoon tweet, Donald Trump Jr. denies a report that he, his father, other family members and the Trump organization were deeded a lot in a Hawkins County subdivision.

Says the tweet: We love Tennessee and it’s incredible people, but this is not true. There’s a link to a Las Vegas TV station’s report on the transfer of an acre lot in a Rogersville, Tenn., subdivision from developer Phillip Henard to President Trump, family members including his son and the Trump Organization.

And here’s an excerpt from a Tennessean report on the supposed deal:

Jeff Thacker, Hawkins County assessor, said because the transaction involved a quitclaim deed —  a type of real estate instrument that carries less weight than warranty deeds — the agreement is suspect.

“I have mailed a letter to the Trump Foundation today asking them to verify the validity of this document before I put it on the tax records in their name, which would be subject to taxation,” Thacker said on Tuesday.

“As far as this being bogus or whatever, all I’ve read is what’s been reported in the paper … it’s as clear as mud.”
