Rawstory is reporting that on Sunday, Eric Trump complained that the Trump Organization and the Trump family are being subjected to an onslaught of investigations and that they are being forced to respond to subpoenas “every single day.”
The remarks were made by the former president’s son during an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.
“The problem with the Democrats is they dig so deep that they always find themselves,” Trump said. “And the reason I’m frustrated about this is every single day since my father ran for president, my father and our entire family and our company has been under investigation. Every single day, Maria, we get subpoena after subpoena after subpoena.”
“But, I mean, they weaponized the entire system in this country,” he added. “They’ve weaponized the DOJ. They’ve weaponized our military. They weaponized the educational system in this country. They’ve weaponized the medical system in this country. The Democrats weaponize absolutely everything they can to use again their political opponents.”

It appears that Eric Trump has an issue with his anger and losing control.
According to excerpts from the Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker’s book “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year,” Eric had a major meltdown on election night 2020 as the numbers rolled in and he realized his father was about to become a one-term president.
While the president’s inner circle was frantically dialing Fox News numbers after the conservative network projected that now-President Joe Biden would win Arizona, son Eric was reportedly berating workers and blaming them for the impending humiliation.
According to a chapter in the book, Eric told friends the night before the election that his father had it all figured out and would win 322 electoral college votes (Trump only got 232), and he became agitated as he watched the various state election results roll in.

“The election is being stolen,” Eric reportedly exclaimed before demanding. “Where are these votes coming from? How is this legit?”
“He yelled at the campaign’s data analysts as if it were their fault that his father’s early leads over Biden were shrinking. ‘We pay you to do this,’ he said. ‘How can this be happening?’” the book reveals.
Eric Trump, through a spokesperson, insisted that he did not berate campaign staff, as described by witnesses.
“There’s no way we lose to this guy,” Donald Trump Jr stated referring to Biden.
On November 4, sometime after 2 a.m., “Hail to the Chief” was played at the East Room celebration. Trump was followed by Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Karen Pence out the door. Trump’s statements had been prepared by Stephen Miller and his speechwriting staff, but the president deviated from his teleprompter script, instead of delivering stream-of-consciousness remarks.
“We were winning everything and all of a sudden it was just called off,” Trump said. He then added, “Literally, we were just all set to get outside and just celebrate something that was so beautiful, so good.”
“This is a fraud on the American public,” the president said. “This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election. We did win this election. So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation. This is a very big moment. This is a major fraud in our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So we’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at four o’clock in the morning and add them to the list, okay? It’s a very sad moment. To me, this is a very sad moment, and we will win this. And as far as I’m concerned, we already have won it,” Trump rambled.
This was an unprecedented claim for any political candidate to make about any election, let alone a sitting president to make about the most important election in the country. Trump was warning the 74 million people who voted for him not to put their faith in the election results.
