Eric Trump attacked the negative media coverage of his father during a radio interview on Wednesday, saying that a person “would end up killing yourself out of depression” if they got as much negative coverage as Donald Trump.
Trump told Joe Pagliarulo, of the nationally syndicated “The Joe Pags Show,” that his father was being repeatedly attacked in the media and that it’s important for him to tune it out sometimes.
“If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right and it’s important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression,” Trump said. “But he’s doing a great job.”
Trump said that he and the rest of his family have to take the coverage “with a grain of salt.”
“It’s the media, the mainstream media, who do not want President Trump to succeed. It’s government who does not want him to succeed…No matter what he does, he’s going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out.”
