Eric Trump slammed Sen. Ted Cruz for not endorsing Donald Trump, arguing that Cruz’s speech Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention was “classless.”

Appearing on CBS’ “This Morning” on Thursday, Eric Trump said, “Listen, I think the speech was — the speech wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good. I think the fact was, this whole convention hall had 25,000 Trump fans in here, right? When he didn’t do, when he didn’t do the right thing. Remember, he signed a pledge at the beginning of the process and when he didn’t do the right thing, people went crazy.”

“I was actually in the green room right behind the stage, I was about to go on and give my speech, this room, I’ve never seen boos like heard boos like that,” Trump said. The arena “was literally shaking with boos. I mean, how do you get booed out of your own convention, by your own party, and by your own delegation? It was unbelievable.”

“[T]he people in this arena spoke for themselves. I don’t even have much comment on it but I think the people in this room spoke for themselves.”

Host Charlie Rose followed up asking if he was “pleased” that Cruz got booed, to which Trump replied, “I thought it was classless to tell you the truth. I thought it was a little bit classless. You know if you gonna go to a convention, you either go to support or you just don’t go at all.”

Trump added, “that’s just Politician 101.”
