Eric Trump: Leaking Dad’s Taxes ‘Sad,’ ‘Scary,’ like ‘Third World’ Country

On Sunday Morning Futures today, host Maria Bartiromo teased an upcoming interview with Eric Trump. With his father and sister now in the White House, management of the Trump organization has fallen to Eric and his older brother Donald Trump, Jr.

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.

“It’s really sad that we’re in an environment where tax returns are leaked by whoever it may be,” he said. “Just think about how dangerous that is, how third world, that 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,” he continued.

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 his father left the company. All in all, it was boilerplate Trump, with Eric reminding Bartiromo that the Trump Organization is “a great company” on three separate occasions.
