Eric Trump appeared on Fox News Tuesday morning complaining that former President Barack Obama is taking credit for victories his father, President Donald Trump, has accomplished during his first two years in office.
Making a cameo on Fox News's Election Day coverage Tuesday, Eric Trump accused Obama of "taking credit" for how much America was "winning," and that it was Obama himself who destroyed what the Democrats were now running on: health care. Trump gushed about his father's reputed accomplishments while in office and gave his dad credit for making the country "win at everything."
"His name is not on the ballot, but America is winning," the president's son told the Fox panel Tuesday morning, referring to his doting dad. "We are winning at everything we do. Our economy is winning, our military is winning, our veterans are winning, we're winning with jobs, we're winning with trade, we're winning with everything right now guys.
"If Americans reward that, if Americans reward a person and a party who has won and turned this country around and has made America the greatest country in the world, the greatest economic power this country has ever seen? Then we do amazing today."
When Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade asked Eric about the speech Obama recently delivered in Chicago, saying the former president appears to have a “personal” problem with the current president, Eric accused Obama of trying to take credit for his father’s accomplishments.
"He does have a personal problem," replied Eric. "He's taken credit for a lot of my father's accomplishments, but you see the passion, you don't see the passion at his rallies, you see the passion at my father's rallies."
Fox News host Steve Doocy noted to Eric that in his speech Obama said: "The character of this country is on the ballot," but then said that Obama had never mentioned Trump by name. "But he was talking about your dad," he said.
