Appearing Tuesday 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 his father, President Donald Trump, and the roster of rival candidates vying to replace him in the White House.
A partial transcript is as follows:
MARTHA MACCALLUM: What’s your reaction that John Durham has asked to expand his investigation. He needs more agents, he has a longer timeframe than they originally thought when they started this whole thing.
ERIC TRUMP: This corruption in D.C. is unbelievable. Again, my father said we have the greatest economy in the history of this country. Our country is doing phenomenally well. The Democrats are trying to do everything they can to distract against the fact that we have 3.5% unemployment, the lowest unemployment in the history of this nation. He has done an unbelievable job.
It’s an absolute clown show. This is a clown show because they know they don’t have any people left to run against my father in 2020. 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.
