President-elect Trump on Friday called it a “ridiculous shame” for his son Eric Trump to stop fundraising for charity due a “possible conflict of interest” with his presidency.

Eric Trump this week announced he will no longer fundraise for his personal charity by auctioning off meetings with people close to his father due to the appearance of selling access to the White House.

The Eric Trump Foundation last week canceled a coffee date auction with incoming first daughter Ivanka Trump. A planned charitable hunting trip with Eric Trump and brother Donald Jr. in honor of their father taking office has also received accusations of selling access.

In two tweets Friday morning, Trump called his son’s decision the “wrong answer!”
