A power of attorney document authorizes an agent to act for the person that made the power of attorney. It does not confer authority over trust property. Only a trustee can act on behalf of the trust, so the power of attorney document won't override the requirements outlined in the trust. If the trust requires that all or a majority of the trustees to make decisions regarding the trust and trust property, then all or a majority of the trustees must act.
