“Last night, he gave an awesome speech…I was so proud of him. He came out, and he goes ‘listen, I have made mistakes in the campaign. I’ve probably … said things I shouldn’t [have]’. … That’s the father I know. I mean the guy’s got a heart of gold,” Eric Trump told FBN’s Stuart Varney.

“He’s a politically incorrect guy, where he has never run as a politician, that is not who he is,” he said.

When asked, Eric said that he wasn’t sure if his father would reach out directly to the family of Muslim American war hero and fallen Army Capt. Humayun Khan.

“There were some bad things said about him and there was a little back and forth. My father has been more pro-military and more pro veteran than probably anybody in the history of our country. He thinks it’s a disgrace what’s happening to our vets,” he said.
