Eric Trump: Hispanics Excited for His Dad to Be President
Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, said on Thursday that Hispanics are excited for his father to become president.
“People often talk about Hispanics,” Eric Trump said earlier this week on Irish radio’s RTE Radio1’s “Drivetime.”
“You know, I have more Hispanics come up to me telling me, ‘Listen, I can’t wait for your father to be president. He’s going to bring jobs back to the United States. He’s going to end the nonsense. He’s going to create good trade deals. He’s going to create better education. He’s going to create a better family structure.’”
The Hill reports:
Surveys show Donald Trump has a lot of ground to make up with Hispanics in the shift toward the general election.
The presumptive GOP nominee is viewed as unfavorable by 79 percent of Hispanics, according to a recent poll by America’s Voice and Latino Decisions. Trump got into hot water with Hispanics when he announced his presidential bid last June when he said Mexico was sending “people that have lots of problems. … They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
But Eric Trump said he doesn’t see that on the campaign trail, noting he has traveled the country over the last several months and has been by his father’s side.
“I see so little of the divisiveness, which is interesting,” he said.
“You watch it on TV, but you see so little of it out in the field.”
