President Trump’s son, Eric Trump, speaking on the second night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, cast his father as a successful first-time politician running against a Democrat who’s done little.
“Most politicians spend their entire careers in Washington DC and get absolutely nothing accomplished. For example: Joe Biden. Joe Biden is a politician who has been in government for 47 years,” Eric Trump said.
“He is a career politician who has never signed the front of a check and does not know the slightest thing about the American worker or the American business — the engine which fuels the greatest economy the world has ever known,” he said.
“The same politician who is a total pushover for Communist China and someone who would be a giant relief for the terrorists who’ve now spent years running, hiding and being taken out.”
After outlining a number of President Donald Trump’s accomplishments, and contrasting them with the policies former Vice President Joe Biden has promised to implement, Trump delivered a more personal message.
“In closing, I’d like to speak directly to my father,” Trump began. “I miss working alongside you every single day, but I’m damn proud to be on the front lines of this fight. I am proud of what you are doing for this country. I am proud to show my children what their grandfather is fighting for. I am proud to watch you give them hell.”
“Never stop. Continue to be unapologetic. Keep fighting for what is right,” Trump continued, adding, “You are making America strong again. You are making America safe again. You are making America proud again. And, yes, together with the forgotten men and women — who are finally forgotten no more — you are making America great again!
Trump concluded with a mention of his late uncle, the president’s youngest brother Robert Trump, who passed away recently at the age of 71 and who President Trump had called “my best friend.”
“Dad, let’s make Uncle Robert proud. Let’s go get another 4 years,” Trump said. “I love you very much!”
