Donald Trump reportedly lost a fortune for running as president when he doesn’t need the job, according to his son Eric Trump.
Donald Trump is aiming for re-election, and the family has been supportive. However, according to Eric Trump, his dad lost a fortune for his candidacy when he didn’t need the job.
Donald Trump lost a fortune for the presidency
In an interview with ABC Sunday morning, Eric Trump was asked to address a report from the New York Times concerning Donald Trump’s tax document. The report claimed that the president engaged in a pay-for-play deal by giving private companies who patronized his hotels and resorts special favors.
For instance, five were allegedly offered ambassadorships, and 10 made federal contracts worth $1.35 billion. Also, Trump would allegedly ask the guests of his properties what they needed from the government.
“My father lost a fortune running for president,” Eric said in a clip shared by TMZ.
“He doesn’t care. He wanted to do what was right. The last thing Donald Trump needs in the world is this job.”
Eric went on and shared how his father would wake up in the morning and fight the media and the Democrats and get punched on the face every single day. Eric emphasized what his dad did to fight for the country and the lunacy of the radical left.
He also boasted how President Trump created the created most of the job and rebuilt the military. He also added the Americans are no longer ripped of healthcare.

Eric calls NYT reports ‘fake news’
However, the host was not satisfied with Eric’s response because it didn’t answer the question. It’s still unclear if those who spent money on Donald Trump’s properties indeed received huge contracts and other favors from the Trump administration.
Eric explained that they are hospitable and that there are tens of millions of people staying on their property every single year.
“The New York Times is absolute fake news. All they want to do is take down my father,” he added.
He also thanked the host for bringing up the New York Times, and the presidential son called out the outlet for dropping old stories starting from the morning of the debate. Eric accused them of setting up stories in the last six months to two years ago to influence the election.
POTUS chooses familiar tactics
Meanwhile, CNN political reporter Maeve Reston slammed Donald Trump for still continuing to make public appearances after his coronavirus diagnosis. For her, the POTUS is endangering the Americans by doing so.
Just nine days after he tested positive for COVID-19, he took his familiar tactics of denial, risk, and ignorance. In fact, Trump wants to push three campaign rallies this week in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Iowa.
