On Saturday (April 1), former President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump criticized the Manhattan Grand Jury’s decision to indict Trump, describing it as a “mockery” of the legal system.
The younger Trump made his remarks during an interview on “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
He lamented how the Trump family had been “attacked from moment number one” and how the Manhattan District Attorney’s office had pursued the former President as a “priority” for six years but hasn’t found “a damn thing” in the documents they reviewed.
Eric Trump also praised the support Trump had gotten in the aftermath of the indictment, explaining that people understood “that we’ve literally become a banana republic,” a reference to a developing nation that is rocked with political and economic instability often because of corruption and authoritarian rule.
He continued that Bragg’s case had made “a mockery of our legal system in this country.”
After the Manhattan Grand Jury approved an Indictment of Trump following an extensive Probe by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Trump’s family and his allies rushed to his defense.
The criticism of the Manhattan probe is the same — it is politically motivated and a witch hunt — but the intensity has changed.
For example, Senator Lindsey Graham, appearing on Fox News’s “The Sean Hannity Show,” called on viewers to donate to Trump’s campaign as he was the victim of “political voodoo” and an attempt by his political adversaries to drain him of funds.
Trump will be arraigned on Tuesday (April 4), with the charges the former President faces unknown as the indictment remains sealed.
