Eric Trump says he is sick of no one standing up for his father, President Donald Trump, following a week that saw his Press Secretary, Chief of Staff, and Communications director leave their positions within the Whtie House.
Eric Trump said his father is carrying the “whole weight” of the Republican party on his shoulders while turmoil strikes his administration.
“My father said it, you know, he said it a couple of weeks ago in a tweet. He said, you know, ‘Am I going to have to carry this whole weight on my shoulders? When are some of the people in my own party going to start protecting me?’” Eric Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “Now listen, I’m an outsider, I am looking in on the White House. … But I want somebody to start fighting for him.”
Trump said his father is “the best fighter in the world” and there is no one who can do a better job of fighting for him than himself.
“But how much weight does he have to carry by himself? How can a party that is doing so much better than the Democrats. … Why wouldn’t they embrace this? My father has the voice of this country. The people of this country love him. Why wouldn’t they get in line?” he said a reference to the three Republican Senators who voted against the latest attempt to repeal Obamacare on Friday.
Eric Trump also placed the blame on Democrats as well.
“Democrats would rather see my father fail than see this country succeed,” he added.
