Eric Trump: ‘Hillary’s Been a Politician Longer Than I’ve Been Alive’
Bartiromo reported that an estimated 100 million people will be tuning in to Monday’s event at Hofstra University in New York State.
Trump, executive vice president of acquisitions and development for the Trump Organization, said his father would do best to be himself and that Bartiromo’s audience estimate is a “testament to what [his] father has created.”
“He’s doing this for the right reasons. [He is] authentic and true,” Trump said, “I think he can bring everybody together.”
Trump said that watching his father compete for the presidency helped draw stark contrast between the New York businessman and his Democratic opponent, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
“He’s talking to working-class Americans who have been left behind by career politicians—and that’s exactly who Hillary Clinton is.”
“We’re disrespected all over the world. [In China], President Obama literally [had to] come out of the service entrance of his plane.”
“Hillary’s been a politician longer than I’ve been alive. [After] Iraq, Syria and Libya…we’re one trillion dollars worse off because of it.”
Regarding Clinton’s invitation for Pennsylvania-born billionaire Mark Cuban to sit in the front row at the Hempstead, N.Y. event, Trump dismissed the move as anything that could rattle the Republican nominee.
“I think Mark Cuban is confused, frankly,” Trump said, noting that the ‘Shark Tank’ star has occasionally given credit to Donald Trump despite recent comments to the contrary.
