Eric Trump, younger son of former President Donald Trump, sat down for an interview on Newsmax, where he said that with fireworks over Mount Rushmore cancelled again and college students saying they are ashamed to be American, there is basically a “war” on patriotism and the American flag.
“They want to get rid of our Pledge of Allegiance. They want to get rid of our national anthem. They want to get rid of ‘under God,'” Trump said during the “Greg Kelly Reports” program on Monday.
“I mean, there is a war on this country. There is a war on this flag, and it’s quite frankly one of the reasons my father ran to become commander in chief,” he said during his chat with guest host Carl Higbee. “It’s one of the reasons, frankly, he won.”
Eric Trump said people are “sick and tired of the nonsense” and said that once the college students seen in a recent video saying they see the United States as oppressive and unjust have had time to travel abroad and see what other countries are like, they will likely “realize how incredible this country is.”
Trump said two tweets by Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., slamming the Fourth of July as representing the freedom of white people only, are “ironic.”
”[W]hen they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people. This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free,” Bush stated in a tweet that was recently published.
“We know what our own freedom looks like. End the slavery permitted under the 13th amendment. End the War on Drugs. End police violence. End health care, housing, and education apartheid. WE are the experts on our own liberation. And we won’t stop until it’s won,” she went on to say in a follow up post.
But Trump noted that Bush, who is Black, is herself one of the most powerful people in the U.S. government. “She’s a congresswoman. I mean, she’s doing awfully well, right?”
The younger son of President Trump went on to state that the left makes these kind of statements to help keep folks distracted from Biden’s “horrible policies.”
“Look what’s happening. Look at energy prices in this country. Look at inflation in this country,” he said, going on to add that countries such as China and Russia have absolutely no respect for Biden.
“Then you go down to southern border and you look at the disaster. … And then you look at the fact that he literally can’t get out a sentence without fumbling,” Eric Trump said.
“You might not have liked a mean tweet or what you perceived as a mean tweet, but there’s one thing you can say about [Donald] Trump: He was a very honest president. There’s no one who is a greater cheerleader for the United States of America than him,” he continued.
He then hinted at the fact that his father is mulling over a 2024 bid for the White House.
“My father doesn’t need this job. He did it because he saw a country that was going down the tube, and it’s happening again. Right now,” he stated in conclusion. “We, as a family, love this nation [and] will never stop fighting for the greatest country in the world, which is [the] United States of America.”
