The trustee has to follow the trust and keep assets in the trust. Moving assets out of a trust to himself is not allowed except in the rare occasion that the trust expressly provides it, most do not. The transfer is normally not allowed and violates duties of trustee. The transfer would be void and assets returned to the trust. A court would remove the trustee and hold trustee liable personally for any losses incurred by the trust due to misconduct.
