Eric Trump: My dad’s legal problems are making him a ‘martyr in the African American community’

During an appearance on right-wing conspiracy theorist Clay Clark‘s show, Eric Trump used some curious reasoning to explain what he says is growing support from the African American community for his father, Donald Trump.

“Now you’re seeing certain segments of the population—like the African American segment of the population—who are coming out and saying, ‘They’ve done the same crap that they’re doing to Donald Trump, they’ve done it to us for years,’” Trump said. “They’ve indicted us for nonsense. They’ve thrown the legal system at us. They haven’t given us a chance in Hell. It’s been a rigged system.’”

“They’ve literally made my father a martyr with certain segments of the population that they otherwise claim to own,” Trump added. “It’s backfiring on them. It’s the law of unintended consequences.”
