WATCH: Eric Trump Describes Getting “Subpoena After Subpoena” After His Dad’s Election Loss
Eric Trump is begging for sympathy as he tells news audiences that he’s receiving “subpoena after subpoena” since his father left the White House. Still, he’s not done pushing the notion that his father will run again — something that Donald Trump is fundraising on, though there’s no official statement that he intends to run.
Eric appeared on Fox News to address issues including Nicki Minaj’s Twitter ban and the backlash after she claimed that a friend of a cousin had suffered genital swelling after being vaccinated against COVID-19; a much-hyped Donald Trump 2024 campaign for presidency; and the legal burdens he’s suffering after his family’s single term in government.
Via RawStory, here’s a Fox News clip of Eric complaining that he is being subpoenaed in multiple legal investigations. Although he doesn’t specify which investigations, it’s likely that he’s being questioned in the case against the Trump Organization for tax fraud, and may also have been questioned in other cases. In June, Rolling Stone published a guide to some of the investigations currently hitting the Trump family, including an investigation into election tampering, and one for incitement of the January 6th riots.
Eric may not have made the connection, however, between his father’s use of his time in power and these investigations, because he makes it clear that he still wants Donald Trump to run for president again, saying that Trump is “the only person who can save this country.”

Trump has been pushing this possibility, both directly and through surrogates, but those close to him say that he won’t run again, and that he’s only using a hypothetical run as a fundraising tool.
