Eric Trump fell aside on Sunday when requested a few new report that Trump makes use of accommodations and companies to run a pay for play rip-off.
When requested about The New York Times story, Trump stated, “My response is that we’ve lost a fortune. My dad’s lost a fortune running for president. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t care. He wanted to do what’s right. The last thing I can tell you that Donald Trump needs in the world is this job. He wakes up in the morning, and he has to fight you, and he has to fight the entire media. He has to fight the Democrats, and he gets punched in the head every single day. He wakes up, and he fights for this country, and he fights against the lunacy of the radical left.”
After Trump then ranted about Joe Biden, ABC’s Jon Karl requested him to handle The Times story, and he answered, “We’re a huge hospitality company. We’ve got tens of millions of people staying at our properties every year. The New York Times is absolutely fake news. All they want to do is take down my father.”
NEW: “My father has lost a fortune,” Eric Trump tells @jonkarl when pressed on a NYT report that Pres. Trump turned “his own hotels and resorts into the Beltway’s new back rooms, where public and private business mix and special interests reign.” https://t.co/FPwDtGBwFl pic.twitter.com/LYdD9BmQwN

The New York Times story laid out how a whole lot of particular pursuits and people are gaining access to Trump and particular favors by spending cash at his properties. It is a basic pay to play rip-off that’s ensuing the constructing of a brand new swamp the place individuals who need favors or entry give cash to Trump by way of his companies.
Pay to play scams are a type of corruption and bribery.
Eric Trump by no means addressed the allegations. Instead, he tried to cover the household’s potential prison conduct behind fake rage and victimhood.
The huge distinction between the 2016 marketing campaign and 2020 is that Trump and his children can’t change the topic to Trump’s opponent. Their doubtlessly prison conduct is being uncovered and all they will do in response is meltdown on nationwide tv.
