Eric Trump Calls Joe Biden & Kamala Harris ‘Unpatriotic’
The comment was made in an interview on Greg Kelly Reports, a news discussion program on the right-wing channel Newsmax. The show’s host asked Eric about his opinion on Democratic Missouri Rep. Cori Bush‘s tweet, which she shared on July 4 that stated the holiday only celebrates the freedom of white people.
When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people.
This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.

Eric said that Democrats make provocative statements like these to distract people from the Democratic party’s policies.
“There’s no one who has a greater cheerleader for the United States of America than him,” said Eric referring to his father. “I mean, he would go out in this beautiful red that said USA on it. Where’s that patriotism with Biden? Where is that patriotism with Kamala? In fact, it’s the exact opposite.”
Eric said that Biden’s policies will help the Republican party win in the 2022 midterm elections. He noted that he believes that Biden’s record would propel his father to re-election in 2024 if he decides to once again run for president.
“My father doesn’t need this job,” Eric said. “He did it because he saw a country that was going down the tubes, and it’s happening again right now.”
Donald Trump has not publically declared that he is running for president in 2024, though he told Fox News host Sean Hannity recently that he had already made up his mind.
Many Republicans are concerned about Trump running for president again because they believe he could hurt moderate Republican candidates running in state races. The recent indictment of the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg for a 15-year tax fraud scheme could also complicate his prospects.
