The brothers are both giving evidence today in a $250 million civil fraud trial involving their father's business, the Trump Organization.

Don Jr., 45, took the stand for a second day on Thursday.

Don Jr.'s testimony concluded shortly before lunch and his brother Eric was expected to follow him on the witness stand.
