Eric Trump went on Fox News on Monday morning to talk about his father’s future, saying that the actions taken so far in the presidency of Joe Biden are making people miss former President Donald Trump.
“I think every single day, Biden makes people miss Donald Trump more,” Eric said of his dad. “When you see some of these policies that are literally destroying jobs, that are destroying industries, that are causing Texas to freeze, that are cutting off our power to our energy grids and all these other nonsensical policies. Right now, the enthusiasm, it’s better than it’s ever been.”
Eric then talked about Trump’s future after it was announced that the former president would be giving a speech at the CPAC event this weekend, an annual meeting of American conservatives, according to The Independent.
“There’s 75-80 million people who would follow my father to the end of the Earth,” Eric said, adding that they love Trump because he is not a traditional politician.
“There’s no question he will play a pivotal role in politics for a very long time to come,” Eric explained. “I really do believe he is the modern Republican Party.”
Eric also predicted that the Republicans in the House and Senate who turned on Trump and supported impeachment are “going to get primaried” when they come up for reelection.
This comes weeks after Eric declared war on the Republicans who had turned on his father.
“My father has started a movement, and this movement will never, ever die,” Eric said, adding that this movement “will transcend [Donald Trump], it will transcend all of us”
Eric doubled down on this in a Twitter post.
“I will personally work to defeat every single Republican Senator / Congressman who doesn’t stand up against this fraud – they will be primaried in their next election and they will lose,” he wrote.
His brother Donald Trump Jr. had similar comments.
“They need to fight for Trump, because if not, I’m gonna be in your backyard in a couple of months,” he said. “If you’re gonna be the zero and not the hero, we’re coming for you.”
