Eric Trump was dragged online after he claimed he leads a “clean, positive life” by waking up at 4:30 a.m. each day to recite the Pledge of Allegiance to his two young children.
The second-born son of former Republican President Donald Trump said he also recites the Lord's Prayer as well as "two other little family prayers that we have" before he makes them "say something that’s meaningful to them."
“I do this every single night at 7:45 no matter where I am in the world."
“If I can’t be there, I’m doing it on FaceTime.”
You can hear what he said in the video below.
Eric Trump made this claim during an interview with Julie Green, a self-proclaimed Christian "prophet" who runs the Evangelical organization Julie Green Ministries.
His remarks got some major side eye from Twitter users who proceeded to mock him profusely.
Eric Trump's comments comprised just one of the weird moments from his interview with Green, who told him God will "bring back" his father to the White House without the need for an actual election.
Green made clear she does not accept Democratic President Joe Biden as the "righful" winner of the 2020 general election, which Trump has falsely claimed was stolen despite all evidence to the contrary.
While she could not elaborate exactly as to how she expects God to "bring back" Trump to Washington, her words underscore the blatantly antidemocratic beliefs of Trump's far-right Evangelical base and their unwillingness to accept the results of an election Biden won decisively.
Green—who has previously claimed that Biden is actually dead—said it's not necessary "to wait for a man's way of doing things, like an election, in order to bring [back] someone who's actually rightfully the elected President of the United States of America," words that inspired her and Eric Trump to pray together on camera.
