Trump addressed concerns an increasingly busy campaign schedule could be a challenge for his father. “He does not lose and quite frankly he’s a guy that has more energy than anybody I’ve ever met before, I call him the ‘energizer bunny,’ I mean he does not stop, I’ve literally never seen the man take a vacation.”
On Donald Trump potentially going up against Hillary Clinton in the general election Eric Trump says: “I think he would actually love to… I think there is a horrendous track record right there that I think he would pick apart.”
The younger Trump also addresses the qualities and experiences his father brings to politics from the business world.
“This is a guy who’s built an empire of amazing hotels and golf courses and real estate buildings and everything else, I mean everything the man ever touched, ‘The Apprentice’ right, turned to gold,” he said, “you’re entering a totally new realm but that’s what makes him refreshing.”
Trump also addressed his father’s lighter side, “one of the things that a lot of people don’t know about him is that he is an incredibly funny guy.”
Trump said he thought the Democratic debate “was a little bit slow, it certainly didn’t have the fire of the Republican debate, it certainly didn’t have the action, nor do I think they quite frankly came at any of the candidates the same way they came after the GOP candidates.”
