Eric Trump backs father, terms AOC’s ‘squad’ ‘an absolute clown show’: 'You don't love our country, get out'
Eric Trump has come out supporting his father Donald Trump as he blasted four congresswomen--Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, popularly known as "the Squad"-- by saying the lawmakers are "an absolute clown show."
The Trump scion's reaction on Wednesday comes after his father wrote on Twitter over the weekend that the four women lawmakers should “go back” to their countries of origin "if they didn't like it in the US".
The president's tweets had drawn severe backlash from the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Eric described the radical progressive wing of the Democrat Party as the "the most hate-filled group I've ever seen before."
"I love the tweet," he said. "If you don't love our country, get out. Leave."
Eric told disgruntled American citizens they would definitely feel a new level of gratitude toward their nation if they visited other countries and compared them with their homeland.
"If you complain about our country, go somewhere, go experience somewhere else in the world," he said. "I've seen a lot of the world. We have it so great in America."
"I'm not saying America doesn't have certain problems," Eric said as he urged others to "go see the conditions around the world, and you'll be so fortunate you live here."
"We are blessed to live in this country," he added. "And if you're not happy about it, I like his message. Leave."
Eric had some more harsh words for Ocasio-Cortez and her freshmen liberal colleagues. According to him, the Democrat party is mired in race-baiting politics and that Republicans will only take advantage of the situation.
"I describe 'the squad' as an absolute clown show," he said. "I mean, listen: Back up two weeks. You had Kamala Harris call Biden a racist, right? Then all of a sudden you had the squad call Pelosi a racist. Then all of a sudden they ask my father, 'Is Pelosi a racist?'"
"No, of course, she's not racist," he continued. "It's just a term that they like to use every day. You know, two nights later she's calling my father [a racist] – I mean, this is what's happening to the party, and it's totally feeding into our hand, and I hope they keep on doing it."
Eric, who serves as Executive Vice President at The Trump Organization, also slammed 'the squad' for refusing to condemn a radical group called Antifa that broke into an ICE facility and replaced its U.S. flag for a Mexican flag. Furthermore, he claimed, "they say anti-Semitic things every single day."
Ilhan Omar had sparked outrage earlier this year after claiming American politicians supporting Israel only did it "for the Benjamins", a reference to an anti-Semitic trope about affluent Jews controlling Washington.
