Donald Trump’s son Eric took the stage at the Republican National Convention and gave his father an impassioned endorsement.
“It’s an honor to be here for a man I love so, so, so much,” the 32 year-old began as he launched into describing his father’s journey to the Republican presidential nomination.
The younger Trump noted how he and his siblings pledged their “unwavering support” to their father’s campaign to restore the American dream, adding that none of them expected the unprecedented “movement” that would start.
“Today, my father stands before you with the most primary votes of any Republican candidate in the history of our nation,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd that included his father, who could be seen sitting with the other Trump children. “He shattered voter registration records across the country. He has defied the predictions of every single political pundit and turned traditional debates into must-see TV.”
He spoke about his father’s “courageous decision” to put his business aside because he “could no longer stand to see what was happening to our great country.” He delivered a blow by blow account, noting “incompetent foreign policy,” an “inept administration,” attacks against the Second Amendment and the effects of political correctness.
Trump, the third child of Donald and his former wife Ivana, reinforced his father’s ability to step in and fix problems caused by “government incompetence.”
“My father is running for you,” Trump said appealing to Americans across the nation.
“Vote for the candidate who you know is running for the right reasons,” he said. “Vote for the candidate who can’t be bought, sold, purchased, bribed, coerced, intimidated or steered from the path that is right and just and true.”
He concluded by addressing his father directly. “Dad, you are my hero, you are my best friend, you are the next president of the United States,” he said as the crowd cheered.
