Eric Trump: Russia Controversy Is ‘A Total Hoax’

Eric Trump spoke to Fox News’ Jesse Watters in an interview that aired tonight and said that all the talk about Russia is “a total hoax.”

Watters said that despite his dad’s successes, “the media keeps harping on Russia, Russia, Russia.” So, the Fox Newser asked, “What’s he gonna do to neutralize that?”

Trump dismissed all of this as “nonsense” and a “witch hunt,” even citing his father’s decision to strike Syria as evidence.

“There’s some pretty disappointed people out there,” he told Watters, “so they want to further a narrative for their own political agenda. And I really believe that they would rather see this country fail than see him succeed.”

Watters said, “So the Russia thing’s a hoax.” Trump said, “It’s a total hoax.” (His father used the same word in March.)

The big news last night, as you’ve probably heard, is that Jared Kushner reportedly wanted to set up a secret communications channel with the Kremlin.
