WATCH: Eric Trump Says Insurance Companies Were Laughing When His Father Tried to Get Bond

Donald Trump and his adult children constantly talk about his wealth and success. Still, many wonder how rich and successful he is if no insurance company is willing to back his bond. So Trump spent the week again humiliated over the lies about his wealth. 

Eric Trump, not exactly his father's best surrogate, appeared on Fox News Sunday morning to try to mitigate some of the embarrassment. But as he almost always does, Eric made his father look worse rather than better. 

"I went after the largest sureties in the world, the largest sureties in the country," he began. 'They said, ‘Eric, the last time we’ve seen a bond that size is when we did the Big Dig of Boston, which was a $25 billion construction project that lasted almost 25 years!’ They’re trying to put my father out of business, they’re trying to take all his resources that he’s trying to put into his own campaign for the presidency."

The former President's son continued:

"They have (Judge Arthur Engoron) come up with an astronomical number, give you zero time to post a bond, a bond that’s not even commercially available in the United States. It’s not — no one’s ever seen a bond this size. Every single person when I came to them saying, 'Hey, can I get a half-billion-dollar bond?' Maria, they were laughing. They were laughing. Top executives of the largest surety companies had never seen anything of this size. What, they’re going to start seizing assets if he can’t put up something that’s not available in the United States?
