My trust fund made me miserable

Adam Roberts, who grew up going to the same beach club Ivanka Trump visited in tony Newport, RI, has also struggled to feel comfortable with his money. His inheritance, which totals more than $1 million in assets, revealed a side of his family that made him uncomfortable.

“I remember getting the trust statement when I graduated from college and seeing that I had ExxonMobil and Chevron stock — at a time when I was learning about climate change and the ways these large corporations exploit people and the planet,” Roberts, 34, tells The Post. “My first reaction was to disassociate and compartmentalize.”

But that only made him feel more like part of the problem.
