On Tuesday, Eric Trump said during an interview on The Joe Pags Show that his father ‘tunes out’ criticism because it would lead to his suicide.
Eric said during the interview that “politics is the nastiest business I’ve ever seen” because the president is constantly hit with criticism.
“I mean, just the evilness and the hatred in that world is unlike anything I could have fathomed before. And no matter what he does, they’re going to hit him on it and they’re going to go after him, and it’s the swamp and it’s a corrupt system.”
“It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want him to succeed. It’s government who does not want him to succeed… No matter what he does, he’s going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out. You obviously have to be tuned into it, but at the same time you have to take it all with a grain of salt.”
“If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right and it’s important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression,” Eric Trump said. “But he’s doing a great job.”
Eric also praised his father during the interview, saying that he isn’t racist because he hired minorities to work at his businesses.
“There is no racist bone in my father’s body. He is the greatest guy in the world,” he urged.
