Eric Trump Goes Off On His Father's Critics: 'They're Not Even People'

Posted June 08, 2017

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received praise from his son Eric Trump who said America needs a president "who understands the art of a deal".

Trump Foundation - already under the spotlight for questionable philanthropic efforts - reportedly directed $100,000 in donations to the Trump Organization through Eric Trump's foundation as revenue.

Others were quick to call him out on a report by Forbes, released Tuesday, stating Eric had transferred $1.2 million from the Eric Trump Foundation to the Trump Organization between 2007 and 2015, money which was supposed to help treat children suffering from cancer.

The testimony came near the start of two days of hearings that will look, in part, at whether Trump sought to obstruct an FBI investigation. According to Ian Gillule, who served as membership and marketing director at Trump National Westchester at the time, the elder Trump "had a cow" when he realized the Trump Organization wasn't milking the charity to recoup all its costs.

The Eric Trump Foundation has legitimately raised million for kids with cancer, including almost $8 million from his foundation alone since it was established in 2007. He flipped. He was like, 'We're donating all of this stuff, and there's no paper trail?

"Contrary to recent reports, at no time did the Trump Organization profit in any way from the foundation or any of its activities". No credit?' And he went nuts.

Cooler for Wednesday, with spotty rain possible
Southeast winds will stay between 10 to 15 miles per hour , becoming south around 5 miles per hour after midnight. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Also, according to the report, Eric Trump took some of the money that was meant for St. Jude's and instead directed it to his charity, which then in turn also paid for the use of Trump properties at other events. He added that he's "never seen hatred like this", though we could probably point him to a few acts of hatred carried out in the past few months that just might compete with the Democrats' interest in due process. "Neither could golf tournament experts or the former head golf professional at Trump National Westchester". "To date, Eric Trump has raised more than $11 million for St. Jude's hospital".

Trump may have been focusing on the Democrats who have pushed for a continuation of the Russian Federation probe and renewed their commitments to fight climate change, but he was really talking about anyone who has opposed the president, and we can not let his words distract us from the administration's actions.

Despite this, Eric Trump still claims that all the money raised for the tournament goes directly to St. Jude Children's.

Eric Trump claimed in December that he would no longer fundraise, citing conflict of interest concerns.
