President-elect Donald Trump’s sons aren’t involved in a fundraising event for conservation charities that’s scheduled for the day after Trump’s inauguration, a spokeswoman for his transition team said Tuesday.

The announcement was contradicted by the fundraiser’s own spokesman, who said Eric and Donald Trump Jr. were honorary co-chairmen and would attend the Jan. 21 event.
