The New York Post reports:
Eric Trump, speaking on the second night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, cast his father as a successful first-time politician running against a Democrat who’s done little. “Most politicians spend their entire careers in Washington DC and get absolutely nothing accomplished. For example: Joe Biden. Joe Biden is a politician who has been in government for 47 years,” Eric Trump said.
“The same politician who is a total pushover for Communist China and someone who would be a giant relief for the terrorists who’ve now spent years running, hiding and being taken out.” On Tuesday, Eric Trump also offered a lengthy list of what he said were his father’s accomplishments, including the killing of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.
The Daily Beast reports:
“A few things to note about Eric Trump’s remarks there,” Rachel Maddow began on MSNBC. “When he declared peace in the Middle East, I’m sorry to have to report, but peace in the Middle East has not broken out.
Also ‘never-ending wars are finally ended.’ There are no wars that Trump has ended, and as we noted earlier in the program, it appears that President Trump has increased the number of U.S. military personnel serving abroad since he’s been in office compared to what was in place when he got here.”
Maddow noted that Eric Trump claimed America has “once again became the envy of the world” once President Trump was sworn in. “America’s standing in the world in terms of how well respected we are, in global opinion surveys has plummeted, sadly, since President Trump has been in office,” she said.
Eric Trump just said that Joe Biden’s election would be a “giant relief for terrorists.”
And this absurd insult to the 9/11 generation will barely register amid the waves of fear-mongering and falsehoods.
