On Wednesday, Eric Trump mocked leftists' accusations that his father is a racist. "My father sees one color," said Eric, "Green."
Host Brian Kilmeade brought up leftists calling President Trump a "racist" following the report that he referred to some countries in Africa as "s***holes" during a bipartisan immigration meeting. The president has denied the report.
"He said some things about race and that people are calling him a racist for the last five or six days," said Kilmeade. "I know you don’t agree with that but is there anything you could bring to this conversation that is important?"
"My father sees one color: Green," responded Eric.
He explained that his father cares about the economy first and foremost, which is currently booming and subsequently helping black Americans, whom his father is being accused of holding racial animus toward.
"That's all he cares about, he cares about the economy. He does not see race, he is the least racist person I have ever met in my entire life, it’s total nonsense, and you know what, at the same time they’re saying that, they’ll never report that African-American unemployment is the lowest it has ever been, the lowest it’s ever been in this country," he said.
Under President Trump, black unemployment has indeed hit a record low. "The black unemployment rate of 6.8% in December was the lowest since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking it in 1972, a year in which the rate ranged from 11.2% and 9.4%," reported CNBC earlier this month. For the first time ever, black employment for Americans aged 16 and up fell below 7%.
"They won’t give him any credit for that, and by the way he campaigned on that. But then, they’ll go out and call him racist," complained Eric.
"It's very sad, it’s a race to the bottom," he said of Democrats. "They stoop very very low, and the reason they do this is they don’t have their own message."
"What is the message on the Democrat side right now?" he asked. "Who are the front runners? What do they stand for?"
Democrats "don’t stand for anything," he continued, "they’re being obstructionists they’ve wasted a tremendous amount of money. They come out no matter what he did, if he was to solve cancer tomorrow they would criticize him for it, I mean, it’s very very sad."
