Eric Trump sometimes wonders if his father winning the presidency was worth the “pressure” his family now faces, but despite his occasional doubts, Trump is encouraged by what he claimed are daily accolades from the American people, according to The Daily Beast.
“[T]here is not a day that goes by where people don’t come up to me on the street and say, ‘Hey, thank you for what your family is doing, like, thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made,’” Trump told Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade during a radio interview.
The president’s son said he used to “kind of almost roll my eyes at the statement, ‘thank you for the sacrifices,’” especially because “so many people have paid the ultimate sacrifice” for the country.
But now into his father’s third year as president, the younger Trump said gets it.
“I mean, this was a billionaire who gave up an unbelievable life to go get punched on the chin every single day,” Trump said. “To get abused, and quite frankly, as a family we’ve done that as well.”
Trump is currently running the day-to-day affairs of the Trump Organization with his brother, Donald Trump, Jr., after President Donald Trump took office in 2016.
