Donald Trump is in New York City this week to check in on his family’s real estate business, according to a new report.

The former president has shown interest in working more with the Trump Organization, which is a major reason for his New York City trip, according to the New York Daily News, citing a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Trump kept his ownership position in his real estate firm throughout his time in office, but passed off day-to-day responsibilities to his sons, Eric and Don Jr.

Trump is expected to stay in Trump Tower during his visit. He is not expected to meet with any prosecutors while in New York, where he faces an investigation into his businesses by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance and Attorney General Letitia James.

Vance, who is investigating whether Trump inflated the value of real estate assets, is seeking to meet in person with Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal lawyer, according to the Daily News, citing a source familiar with the probe.

Vance is also seeking to get more information out of Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer for decades. Vance is said to be seeking to ask questions about Weisselberg’s adult sons.
