Eric Trump blasted the media narrative that his dad is racist amid the continuing press uproar over President Trump’s alleged “sh*thole” remark.
Eric said the only color his father cares about is green. Because he’s focused on making America rich again.
“My father sees one color: green. He cares about the economy,” Eric Trump said Fox & Friends. “He does not see race. He’s the least racist person I have ever met in my entire life. It’s total nonsense.”

The press has been obsessively chewing its cud over a comment Trump supposedly made during a closed-door meeting on immigration reform with lawmakers at the White House last week.
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin later claimed Trump had referred to some third-world African countries as “sh*tholes” during the meeting.
The president denied the reports, saying it was “made up” by Democratic lawmakers to push a narrative. This week, President Trump said he wants immigrants from “everywhere” to come to the United States. But they have to do it legally.
Meanwhile, a growing chorus of obstructionist Democrats, including Maxine Waters and John Lewis, plan to boycott Trump’s first State of the Union address on January 30 to protest his alleged “sh*thole” comment.
This week, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders fired back at reporters who insist that Trump is racist because he wants to stamp out illegal immigration and have a merit-based immigration system. For the record, immigration reform is something both Democrats and Republicans have claimed they wanted for years.
Sanders said a merit-based immigration system cannot, by definition, be racist. Because it relies on merit, not on race.
“By definition, a merit-based system is colorblind,” Sanders said at a White House press briefing. “It’s not based on race, not based on religion, not based on country of origin. It’s actually was based on the merits of whether or not this person is going to be contributing to society.”
It’s ironic that liberals who are foaming at the mouth at the thought of a merit-based immigration system are basically admitting that some ethnic groups are inferior and can’t make the cut if admission were solely based on merit. Who’s the racist now? Think about that.
Meanwhile, check out this epic truth bomb from a Nigerian immigrant who came to the United States legally. He says he’s not offended that President Trump might have called some African nations “sh*tholes” because he’s 100% correct.
“Nigeria is indeed a sh*thole,” the man said, before rattling off exactly why.
