Eric Trump: Dad Showed ‘Courage’ to Not Attack Bill Clinton’s Infidelity

Eric Trump said Tuesday that it took “courage” for his father to avoid mentioning Bill Clinton’s infidelity during Monday night’s presidential debate. “I mean, he very well could’ve looked down—and he said it when he came off the debate stage, ‘I wasn’t gonna respond to that question because I saw Chelsea in the front row and I just wasn’t gonna go there out of respect for her,’” the son of the Republican nominee told 1040 WHO Iowa radio host Simon Conway. “And that was a big moment for me and probably will actually become, my life and this campaign, and probably will be something I’ll always remember.” The younger Trump added: “He really took the high ground where he had the opportunity to go very, very low. And I’m proud of him for doing that. I mean, I’m really proud of him for doing that. And I think people recognize that. I mean, there are a lot of people who came up to me, including many in the media, who said listen, he could’ve just crushed her on that last question. And he would’ve probably hurt a family if he did.” Trump claimed during the debate that he would refrain from mentioning something “very rough” for the Clinton family when asked about his own history of sexist comments directed at women.
