Eric Trump: Trump-Russia Probe ‘Greatest Hoax of All Time’

In a new ABC News interview aired Tuesday morning, Eric Trump called the Trump-Russia collusion allegations the “greatest hoax of all time.” During his interview, Donald Trump Jr. echoed his father in calling the investigation into possible coordination between his father’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin’s election meddling a “witch hunt.” The president’s eldest sons, who have ostensibly taken over management of their family’s Trump Organization real-estate business, announced Monday that they will expand their signature hotel chain into mid-market properties. “It has nothing to do with politics,” Trump Jr. said of the new hotel line. “We're trying to make money off of a hotel brand that we feel there's an underserved market to. I think more companies could probably do better by being a little bit more patriotic.”
