      Two sons of U.S. president Donald Trump are expected to be in Vancouver for the February 28 opening of the Trump International Hotel & Tower.

      This is according to a Vancouver Sun article, citing the hotel's public-relations adviser, Talk Shop Media.

      For Donald Trump Jr., 39, and his younger brother Eric, 33, it will be a return visit to the city.

      In 2013, the Trump brothers were in Vancouver with their sister, Ivanka, and their father to announce that the family name would appear on a highrise in the 1100 block of West Georgia Street.

      The Arthur Erickson-designed tower has 63 floors and cost a reported US$360 million to develop.

      “It’s an amazing place. It’s a beautiful place, and we’re going to make it more beautiful,” Trump Sr. stated at the time. “It is a very expensive building to build, but I think it’ll be one of the great buildings not only in Canada, not only in the United States, anywhere in the world. It’s that good.”

      Since Trump Sr. announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination, the project has been the site of several political protests.

      Meanwhile, the Trump brothers have attracted controversy in connection with their love of big game hunting.

      Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are both executive vice presidents of the Trump Organization.

      In his first post-inauguration interview, Eric Trump told New York Post columnist Lois Weiss that he focuses on hotels, a winery, golf courses, and construction.

      “I made the purchases of every single one of those golf courses, and I rebuilt every single one of these properties,” the younger brother said.

      His older brother's responsibilities include commercial properties and hotels, according to the article.
