Eric Trump, the second son of President Trump, gave a speech at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, Aug. 25, ending with some direct and personal remarks to his father.
Eric spoke of the president’s first four years in office and how he has continuously fought for “America’s forgotten workers.”
“Our movement followed the pattern of so many that came before us,” Eric Trump said in a pre-taped speech from inside the historic Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, Washington. “First, we were ignored. Then we were laughed at. Then they fought us. And then, together, we won,” he said.
Taking aim at the radical Democrats, Eric said they “want to destroy the monuments of our forefathers. They want to disrespect our flag. Burn the stars & stripes that represent patriotism and the American Dream,” he claimed.
“They want to disrespect our national anthem by taking a knee while our armed forces lay down their lives every day to protect our freedom. They do not want the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools. Many don’t want ‘One nation, under God,” he said.
“They believe the only path forward is to erase history and forget the past,” he added. Eric, together with Donald Trump Jr., is an executive at the Trump Organization.
“The Democrats want to defund, destroy, and disrespect our law enforcement,” he said. “The Democrats want an America where your thoughts and opinions are censored when they do not align with their own.”
“This is the fight that we are in right now. And it is a fight that only my father can win,” he said.
Speaking directly to his father, the president, Eric referred to the president’s deceased younger brother Robert who died on Aug. 15, 2020.
“Dad, let’s make Uncle Robert very proud this week. Let’s go get another four years,'” he said in a televised speech at the virtual convention, reported the Daily Mail.
He finished his speech with touching words for his father, “I love you very much. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.”
