Eric Trump: COVID is Plot Against Dad, Will Disappear After Election
Donald Trump truly loves hosting political rallies. Unlike all other President’s, Trump has continued to hold large scale events even when his isn’t campaigning for election. The crowd control measures installed to combat COVID-19, however, prevent the President from hosting his beloved rallies.
According to son Eric Trump, there is something sinister about the way coronavirus restrictions prevent his father from holding the events. During a Saturday night Fox News appearance, Trump hinted Democrats will use COVID-19 to prevent the President from holding rallies until after the election.
The President’s son made the comments while speaking with Jeanine Pirro. He told the Fox host, “Listen, Biden loves this. They think they’re taking away Donald Trump’s greatest tool, which is being able to go into an arena and fill it with 50,000 people every single time. So you watch, they will milk it every single day between now and November 3rd.”

Eric Trump continued, “And guess what, after November 3rd, coronavirus will magically all of the sudden go away and disappear and everybody will be able to reopen.”
The President’s son ended his conspiracy theorizing by telling Pirro, “They’re trying to deprive him of his greatest asset, which is the fact that the American people love him, the fact that he’s relatable, and the fact that he can go out there and draw massive crowds.”
Eric Trump also parroted a common claim that the President’s rallies draw more than 50,000 people. The events are regularly held in venues that hold for fewer people than that. For example, Donald Trump claimed that he had 40,000 to 50,000 people at a 2019 New Hampshire event. The venue held less than 12,000 people.
