Eric Trump: Democrats are 'not even people'

Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump's son Eric said in an interview Tuesday that Democrats are "not even people" in a response to a question about their efforts to find evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

On Tuesday evening, Eric Trump, one of the Trump children supposedly managing the family business while their father manages the nation, went on Fox News to complain about the Democratic Party in an astonishingly vitriolic attack. I mean, morality's just gone.

US President Donald Trump previously faced criticism after a media report on the Trump Foundation's activities showed it had used charitable donations for Trump's benefit, including purchasing a $20,000 portrait of Trump. "We don't - we just don't mix", Eric said, Politico reported.

Striking a self-righteous tone, Trump said of the Democrats, "They try and obstruct a great man; they try and obstruct his family".

In the first several years of Eric Trump's foundation, the golf tournament seemed to be functioning relatively normally, with expenses averaging about $50,000-higher than you would think would be necessary if the golf course was being offered for nothing, but not out of bounds. "They have no message".

Literally, they took money from cancer stricken-kids, via a golf charity event, and stuffed it into their own pockets. You see the head of the D.N.C. who is a total whack job.

So how did the young Trump end the day?

The Forbes story also reported that the Eric Trump Foundation had sent $500,000 to other charities, including some 'connected to Trump family members or interests, including at least four groups that subsequently paid to hold golf tournaments at Trump courses'.

The "yuppie vampire" vibe emanating from Donald Trump's second son has been noted before, but yesterday we found out that comparison was more prescient than even the most savage meme-maker could have realized.

"We get to use our assets 100 percent free of charge", he told Forbes.

"Those are special times in their lives and that's what the support of the public allows St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital to do", Shadyac said about the money raised to help kids get well.

Trump is now helping run the family business with his brother, Donald Trump Jr., while their father serves as president.

And the amount that the Trump Organization charged the foundation for the event skyrocketed in recent years, far exceeding standard costs for similar events, according to golf charity experts Forbes interviewed.

Eric Trump steps off Air Force One as he arrives at Andrews Air Force Base on April 16.

Trump told Tuesday night that the charity's expense-to-fundraising ratio 'doesn't include the millions I sent directly to St. Jude and not through ETF'.
