Donald Trump Jr. – son of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump – tells Stephen K. Bannon on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily that his father is “a blue collar guy” with a balance sheet.

“He’s a blue collar guy with a big balance sheet,” Trump, Jr. said about his father. “His ideal night isn’t going to some black tie nonsense,” but instead watching a ball game and enjoying the food.

He said his father is “a hard working guy” that made sure he raised his children to always be grounded.

“What could have happened to us in a place like New York City…I think we’re one of the few people in those circumstances who understand how fortunate we are,” Trump said about growing up wealthy in the big apple. He said his father had the children start working at a young age.

“He made sure we were well educated, that we respected people, that we saw the other side of the world,” Trump told Bannon. He added that he has friends in Iowa and visits Iowa often to hunt, saying he – like his father – tends to be “a blue collar guy at heart.”
