'It'd Be Amazing Comedy': Eric Trump Says He Hopes Elizabeth Warren Runs for President
Trump Organization Executive Vice President Eric Trump said that Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren would create "amazing comedy" on the campaign trail if she ran against his father in 2020.
Eric was "Outnumbered" on Friday, and was asked by the panel what Democrats he sees as potential heavyweights matching up against President Donald Trump.
Melissa Francis added that socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, running for Congress in New York City, refused to endorse fellow socialist Sen. Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.), who could run again.
Trump said a Warren ticket would "be amazing comedy for 18 months" and that his father would easily dispatch the onetime Harvard faculty in the general election.
"Here she is, writing Indian cookbooks and claiming to be Native American in law journals -- then they find out she's 1/1024th [indigenous]," Eric said.
Asked about former Vice President Joe Biden -- who is favored in a recent poll versus other potential Democrats -- Eric said all his father would have to do is "talk about the Obama Economy."
Former Ohio State House Speaker Capri Cafaro (D) disagreed, saying Biden stands a good chance against Trump because of his "scrappy" background growing up in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
