President Trump’s second son, Eric Trump, just confirmed that the rumors are true. His family is devastated, but he’s speaking out anyway.
Appearing on Fox News, Eric broke his silence about the spitting attack he experienced while eating at a Chicago restaurant. He said that even though it was a “heinous act,” he won’t be pressing charges.
He said it’s better to take “the high road” in this case, and he also refused to make this a partisan issue. “I don’t think it’s reflective of parties,” he said of the woman’s actions.
Eric has been in the public eye for most of his life, but the media attention — even where he dines — increased when his father became president. He seems to be taking it all in stride, much like the rest of his siblings.
During the same interview, Trump also commented on the Democratic candidates seeking to run against his father in 2020. He said that when you talk about “paying for everything for everybody,” there’s a big problem.
Trump said that this rhetoric from Democrats proves “they’re not taking care of the citizens of their own country,” and are instead more interested in promising handouts to “people who came to this country illegally.”
