Eric Trump joined Maria Bartiromo this morning and spoke for the first time since President Trump’s tax returns were leaked by Rachel Maddow. First, he pointed out how the leaking of these returns RUINED the Democrats argument because it showed Trump paid higher tax rates than all of them.
But he didn’t stop there! Eric Trump UNLOADED on the media and the Democrats for stealing and leaking personal information. WATCH below:
“It’s really sad we’re in an environment where tax returns are leaked. Just think about it. Just think about how dangerous that is, how third world it is of a practice…when personal information is being put out by people for political agendas. As a civilian it’s actually scary to me.”

From Fox News:
During the interview, Bartiromo asked about the recent tax leak that showed President Trump paid an effective 25% tax rate for the year 2005. The younger Trump didn’t mince words.
Trump’s tough talk came at the very end. The tease — which lasted a ten full minutes — mostly focused on what Eric and the Trump Organization have been doing since their father left the company. All in all, it was boilerplate Trump, with Eric reminding Bartiromo that the Trump Organization was “a great company” on three separate occasions.
