NOPE! Eric Trump Lies that Daddy Gave All Foreign Money Made at His Hotels to the Treasury

The congenital dishonesty of Donald Trump and his family is one of the most reliable indicators of membership in that clan. The patriarch is notable for his having been documented to have told more than 30,000 lies during his occupation of the White House. And his cult followers love him all the more for it.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

But Trump’s progeny are no slouches either. In the midst of the avalanche of arrests and arraignments of Papa Trump, ‘lil Eric Trump is striving to change the subject and to pretty-up his felonious father as a paragon of virtue. Never mind the four indictments with 91 counts, or the porn star hush money, or the sexual harassment and rape, or the stolen classified documents, or the fraudulent financial filings, or the attempted coup. Eric wants you all to know that Daddy wouldn’t take a penny from foreign officials patronizing his hotels and golf resorts. Also, all of the other charges are trumped up, and he has “proof.”

On Monday Eric appeared on the official Trump-fluffing network, Newsmax, to deliver his latest reputation make-over. It was a pathetic – and disturbingly manic – performance that sought to cast Donald as a humble public servant, utterly uninterested in profit or personal gain. And if you buy that, you probably also believe that he’s a loving father and a faithful husband. Spinning furiously, Eric said that…

“If somebody came into one of our hotels while my father was president and they were from a foreign country, a government official from a foreign country – you know what we’d do? We’d donate all the money from that margarita they bought at the bar to the US Treasury.”

Sure he would. When he wasn’t busy showing them classified contingency plans for military engagements with hostile foes. Trump would never accept money from foreign officials seeking favor from the United States. Well, except for all times he did just that. As reported by NPR last year

“Documents released by the House Oversight and Reform Committee show extravagant spending from foreign leaders at former President Donald Trump’s luxury hotel in Washington, D.C., which the committee says could have violated his oath of office by distorting U.S. foreign policy for personal financial gain.

“Government officials from Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and the People’s Republic of China collectively spent over $750,000 at the Trump International Hotel during his presidency, according to committee chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and, she said, did so ‘at sensitive times for those countries’ relations with the United States.'”

Note that this report deals only with monies received at Trump’s hotel in Washington, D.C. Other more expansive reporting shows that Trump earned as much as $160 million dollars from foreign sources while president. A more expansive investigation by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) found that…

“Throughout his time in office, President Trump, his family and his Republican allies repeatedly assured the public that his refusal to divest from his businesses wouldn’t lead to any conflicts of interest. Americans were promised that Trump would donate his salary, which he did, until maybe he didn’t — all while siphoning millions from taxpayers that more than offset his presidential pay. When it came to foreign conflicts of interest, Trump and his company pledged to pause foreign business. They did not.”

Not surprisingly, the most frequent contributors to Trump’s coffers were from the Middle East and China. But according to Eric even the price of a single cocktail at the hotel bar was too much to hang on to. So maybe Trump reimbursed the twelve bucks for the drink, but kept the ten grand per night for all the rooms. In any case Eric is proving adept at the family business of lying. But then, he’s had plenty of practice.
