Appearing Tuesday, Oct. 8, on the Fox News Channel’s “The Story” with Martha MacCallum, Eric Trump called the Democrats an “absolute clown show” during his remarks on the formal impeachment inquiry targeting President Donald Trump.
“The Democrats are trying to do everything that they can distract against the fact that we have 3.5 percent unemployment, the lowest unemployment in the history of this nation. He’s done an unbelievable job, Martha,” Trump said. “This is a clown show, because they know that they don’t have any people left to run against my father in 2020.”
Eric Trump said Democrats have known they’re going to lose the 2020 election, adding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “jumped the gun.”
“They know they’re going to lose. Nancy Pelosi jumped the gun. She doesn’t know what to do at this point. They’re floundering in the wind. And honestly, I think if they keep this up, I think it’s guaranteeing my father re-election. The fundraising numbers we have coming in right now are out of control,” he added.
“It’s a clown show. They know they can’t win,” @EricTrump said about the Dems.

In addition, Eric Trump said if he were in the same position as Hunter Biden, he also would face consequences.
“Could you imagine if that was me, Martha? Could you imagine if I was Hunter Biden and I took $1.5 billion from the Chinese?” Trump asked. “Could you imagine if I got $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian gas company?”
He called the Democrats hypocritical.
“It seems to me that all these Democratic kids are on the boards of all these gas companies, which is really interesting because if you look at the U.S., they won’t let us drill for oil and gas in New York. They won’t let us do it in Pennsylvania. You need to try and stop at every turn,” Trump said. “So, it’s OK to drill for oil and gas in Ukraine. It’s OK for kids to sit on boards of Ukrainian companies. But, when we try and do it here in the U.S., it’s the Green New Deal, it’s all that. I mean, the hypocrisy is incredible.”
