Eric Trump, son of Donald Trump Jr., has just welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world. Twitter has ignited into a storm of responses, praising the Trumps and congratulating President Donald Trump on his new grandson.
Eric Trump’s wife Lara gave birth to a baby boy just hours ago. The new father announced the birth of his son on Twitter with a picture of the newborn, which has millions of Americans in a state of glee.

“@LaraLeaTrump and I are excited to announce the birth of our son, Eric “Luke” Trump at 8:50 this morning,” he announced on Twitter. He was met with a shower of admiration from Trump supporters and even moderate liberals alike, congratulating him on his first son.
“Congrats you guys!!!” one user tweeted out. “He’s arrived! Praise the Lord!” another said. While many of the responses were positive, some liberal trolls decided to take to the message board and comment extremely rude and hateful remarks over the infant child.
Congrats you guys!!!! So happy for you two. President Trump has another beautiful grandchild. ❤️

One twitter user urged the Trumps to stop reproducing, saying that “we don’t need anymore #Trump’s.” She was immediately met with a storm of fire and fury from Trump’s die hard supporters, making her immediately regret her statement.
Real nice coming from a teacher. Do you also shame the kids from conservative homes?

Fox News adds to the story:
Donald Trump Jr, who has five children himself with wife Vanessa, congratulated his brother on Twitter saying: “Congrats buddy. Welcome to the club. Now that the niceties are out of the way it’s older brother revenge for that drum set to my kids.”
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, also tweeted a sweet message on the new parents.
“Welcome to the world, baby boy. I can’t wait to meet you,” she wrote on Twitter shortly after the announcement.
This is the first child for Eric and Lara Trump, who got married three years ago at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. This is also President Trump’s ninth grandchild, with three coming from the Ivanka and Jared Kushner side.
