Eric Trump: Media Tried 'Really Hard' But Everyone Knows Russia's A Hoax

Eric Trump, echoing his father’s words, claimed Tuesday that the federal investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the president’s 2016 campaign is “a total hoax.”

The executive vice president of the Trump Organization, the president’s second-eldest son, told Newsmax TV that the news media are determined to bring down the administration. Regarding the collusion probe, the 33-year-old businessman declared: “They tried really hard, but it didn’t fly. And everybody realizes the whole thing was a total hoax and a spoof and that there was nothing there. I’m proud of (the president). Listen, no matter what we do, we’re going to get hit.”

Eric Trump called the politics in the nation’s capital “nasty,” adding: “It’s the nastiest business I’ve ever seen. It’s just the evilness and the hatred in that world is unlike I could’ve ever fathomed before. And no matter what he does, they’re going to hit him on it — and they’re going to go after him. It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want him to succeed. No matter what he does, he’s going to get hit.”

The president’s son explained how he has learned to cope with the constant criticism. “You have to tune it out,” he said. “Obviously, you have to be tuned into it, because you need to know what’s being said. At the same time, you have to take it all with a grain of salt. If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right. It’s important to keep it in context. Otherwise, quite frankly, you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression.” Trump insisted that his dad “is doing a great job” and “has kept every single promise that he’s made.” The president “is doing everything that he said he would do, and we have a better country because of it,” according to his son.

In a Fox News interview last month, Eric Trump accused news reporters of being in a “race to the bottom” in their coverage of the Russian scandal. “The media has really gone to shambles,” he said. “They would rather focus on Russia. They would rather focus on these nonsense stories than real news that people care about. It’s a sad thing for democracy. It’s a sad thing for the morality of the country.”

Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller and his legal team continue to investigate charges by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russian leader Vladimir Putin ordered cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman during last year’s race. Putin operatives also have been accused of planting “fake news” about Clinton in social media and hacking voter-registration systems in the United States.

Mueller is looking into whether anyone associated with the Trump campaign conspired in those efforts. In addition, he is probing the allegation that the president obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey in an attempt to thwart the bureau’s probe of Russian election meddling. Mueller has empaneled a pair of grand juries to determine whether criminal charges are warranted.
