Eric Trump gave a tongue-in-cheek response while defending his father from claims of racism on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning.
“He said some things about race and that people are calling him a racist for the last five or six days,” first posed host Brian Kilmeade. “I know you don’t agree with that but is there anything you could bring to this conversation that is important?”
“My father sees one color,” Trump responded. “Green.”
“That’s all he cares about, he cares about the economy. He does not see race, he is the least racist person I have ever met in my entire life, it’s total nonsense, and you know what, at the same time they’re saying that, they’ll never report that African-American unemployment is the lowest it has ever been, the lowest it’s ever been in this country,” he continued.
“They won’t give him any credit for that, and by the way he campaigned on that. But then, they’ll go out and call him racist,” Trump added before throwing a question back at the opposition. “It’s very sad, it’s a race to the bottom, they stoop very very low, and the reason they do this is they don’t have their own message. What is the message on the Democrat side right now?”
“Who are the front runners? What do they stand for?” he asked. “They don’t stand for anything, they’re being obstructionists they’ve wasted a tremendous amount of money. They come out no matter what he did, if he was to solve cancer tomorrow they would criticize him for it, I mean, it’s very very sad.”
It’s worth noting that black unemployment hit the lowest point since 1972 in December, 6.9 percent, according to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
