The attacks against the First Family are getting worse and Eric Trump is fighting back. The entire immediate family of the POTUS has come under extreme criticism over the last six months and according to middle son Eric, it’s totally out of bounds. In a new interview with “Fox & Friends,” he detailed what he and his family has faced.
Eric and wife Lara have, for the most part, stayed out of the spotlight and in New York in order to run the Trump business empire. This is most likely because they’re expecting a new addition to the family in just a few months and the toxic environment of attacks are not conducive to a stress-free pregnancy.
Eric isn’t shying away from the issue though, he’s ready to call for a stop to the viciousness that his family has encountered.
Eric Trump lambasted Democrats and the news media in an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning, citing attacks on every sibling except for Tiffany Trump.
“They attack us for everything,” Trump said. “You see what they’ve done to Don [Jr.], to Jared, you see the nasty things that they say about my pregnant wife, about Barron.”
The president’s second son then turned to an ongoing investigation into his foundation being led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman that began earlier this year after Forbes alleged that Eric Trump’s charity shifted some money from a benefit for children with cancer at St. Jude’s Hospital into the Trump Organization, a move that could run afoul of prohibitions against self-dealing on the part of charities.
“I’ve raised $20 million for St. Jude, they attack me,” he said. “It’s unthinkable about what did they’ll come after us for. We’re always under siege, but it is what it is.”
Here is video of the interview.
Just in case you were of the opinion that this was a dramatization of what the First Family was experiencing, one of the liberal puppets chimed in, right on cue, and took a swing at President Trump and his relationship with his youngest son, 11-year-old Barron.

First off; since when is it ok to bring a child into your political vendetta with a politician? And secondly, maybe some people are just better at time management than others.
Thankfully there were a few Americans willing to remind Olbermann about a little thing known as common decency.
C'mon, he's a kid. Leave him out of this.

Thank you Brian, excellent admonishment.
Kids should be off limits, Keith. https://t.co/JAsN3w2E6Y

See, even bunnies know this.
If that's all he spends his time doing, why are you hysterical about him each day "ruining the country"?

That is an excellent question. In one breath they rant and rave about the mess he’s making, and in the next, they claim he can get nothing done.
We joke and make light of the liberals who never weary of pounding their head against the wall in anger at President Trump, but we’re really just laughing to keep from crying. Right now we’re able to speak up against them, and we have high hopes that the President will help us retain our rights, but the fact is that we shouldn’t have to. I’m truly sorry for the pain that people feel when they think about the President, I wish it weren’t so, but this is not how you respond to something you don’t like.
Cheap shots, personal attacks, and bullying are only going to make the situation worse. If you’ve got a policy disagreement with him, then air it out and win people over with your valid argument. But just because you don’t like the guy, doesn’t make it ok to be cruel.
