His nephew’s family claimed Donald and his other siblings had unduly influenced their father who suffered from dementia. They challenged the will. This angered Trump and he cut off support for the child with cerebral palsy.

The Daily Mail has more on this story in “Donald Trump admits cutting off medical treatment for his nephew’s sick baby after will dispute with alcoholic brother’s family.”

Undoubtedly this story will be used for political reasons as long as Donald Trump remains a presidential candidate.

Contacting an estate planning attorney could possibly help avoid such issues.
