Eric Trump is telling blatant lies and he’s using Fox & Friends to ensure Donald Trump’s most loyal followers are convinced of his family’s innocence.
Appearing on his father’s favorite TV show on Thursday, Eric Trump claimed that the Trump Organization has absolutely zero investment ties with Saudi Arabia and Russia.
“There’s zero investments in Russia, there’s zero investments in Saudi,” Trump said. “We have absolutely nothing to do with those countries.”
His comments directly contradict his very own statement in 2014 in which the President’s son boasted that his family was receiving international investment money after U.S. banks refused to fund Trump’s continuous business failures.
“We don’t rely on American banks,” Eric Trump said. “We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”
When Donald Trump announced his Presidential bid at Trump Tower in 2015 the soon-to-be President proclaimed, “I love the Saudis… Many are in this building.”
A recent report also suggests that a single visit from a Saudi Prince and their entourage can provide an entire quarter worth of revenues for a Trump Hotel.
Eric Trump may claim the Trump Organization has no ties to the Saudi’s or Russians but the evidence is as clear as day.
Here’s Eric Trump blatantly lying:
