Eric Trump wants his father to declare a national emergency at the border

Eric Trump raged against Democrats in a new interview about the border wall. He took the opportunity to praise his father as "the greatest guy in the world."


Eric appeared on Fox News' Sean Hannity show on Tuesday. There, he immediately spewed attacks against Democrats, at one point calling them "crazy."

He began:

"It doesn't make sense. Democrats are now the party of the JFK, they've become so radicalized."

Eric went on to hit on his points of contention against the Democrats, eventually suggesting it would end up like Venezuela. That country has spiraled into turmoil and economic failure.

He said:

"They don’t want law and order, they want to tax people to death, they want to get businesses out of this country, they want to let anybody in this country, they want to bankrupt the system through free health care for all."

Eric pointed out that "that's not what America's about. America's about hard-working people." He asserted that if a national emergency was what it took to attain the $5.7 billion his father wanted to build the wall, he should certainly do it.


He stated:

"I want him to declare an emergency. [If the democrats don't negotiate something fair, the president should] build the wall with the United States military because that's what people in this country want."

The disagreement between Republicans and Democrats in Congress led to the record-making 35-day government shutdown that halted a number of departments. Donald ended the shutdown last Friday, but only temporarily.


If the lawmakers are unable to prepare a bill that the president approves, he will either impose another shutdown or declare a national emergency. Democrats like the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, are refusing to budge on not funding the border wall.

Eric explained:

“They’ve become so radicalized and it’s not going to work. They’ve become crazy. The message doesn’t even make sense anymore. It’s almost an anti-American message.”

Eric pointed out that the Trump administration is not against immigration. Rather, it is for legal immigration "done in the right way." At one point he asked: "When can we start using common sense in this country?"

He went on to list improvements that his father President Donald Trump has brought to the nation. According to him, the military was rebuilt and unemployment is at its lowest.


Meanwhile, Eric was recently mocked for praising his father for something else. As promised, the President gave away $100,000 from his salary to the federal agency for alcoholism research.

On Twitter, people were unimpressed. Many were curious about which charity he sent the money to and wanted proof. Some insisted that the donation is likely for scam charity," pointing to reasons why they wouldn't believe he did it.


The reactions are in line with public opinion on how Trump handles funds. A Monmouth University poll showed that only 34 percent of the nation wants Trump to declare a national emergency in order to build the wall.

In contrast, 64 percent want Trump to stick to congressional decisions regarding the border. 93 percent of Democrats are totally against the idea while 71 percent of Republicans are for it.


Marco Rubio, a Republican senator from Florida, is actually opposed to the move. He spoke on "Meet The Press" where he called the national emergency "a terrible idea."

Of course, the whole point of the executive order would be for the President to bypass all forms of opposition and get his wall built. We hope that the lawmakers and Trump's administration come to an agreement before such steps are taken.
