It has been made clear in numerous incidents that the Trump family does not think that the law applies to them. Eric Trump is certainly an example of this.
Documentary Filmmaker Alex Holder spoke at length with multiple Trumps in the leadup to the January 6th election. According to Holder, Eric Trump thought inciting violence was “fair game.”
The filmmaker recently told the Independent, “When I asked Eric about the potential danger of sort of rhetoric and the sort of the belligerence, he felt that it was … fair game in that it … was sort of the equivalent on the other side of the political discourse, or he felt that it was the right thing to do … because the election was stolen.”
Filmmaker Alex Holder says that Eric Trump was unconcerned by the possibility that his father’s lies about the 2020 election could incite his supporters to violence. Which proves Donald Trump and Eric Trump knew violence was inevitable.

Holder also noted that he thought violence would be a very real possibility on that January day. “The idea of violence, to me, seemed likely because of the fact that when you tell 75 million people that their vote didn’t count, and the person that’s telling you that is not just the guy you voted for, but also the incumbent President of the United States, the chance of violence was always there.”
