Aras Agalarov and his pop singer son Emin have known the Trumps for years. Now the Donald Jr email scandal has put them in an unwanted spotlight
He’s a billionaire construction magnate who likes shiny and expensive things and built a luxury tower block adorned with his own name: it’s not surprising that people have referred to Aras Agalarov as the Russian Trump.
Agalarov and his pop singer son Emin have known the Trump family for years, and emails released this week by Donald Trump Jr suggest the Agalarovs may have been a conduit for Russian efforts to help the Trump camp.
Aras is a very careful, shrewd operator, and he will be absolutely horrified that his name has been dragged into this
@AgalarovAras I had a great weekend with you and your family. You have done a FANTASTIC job. TRUMP TOWER-MOSCOW is next. EMIN was WOW!
