After Ted Cruz divided the convention by betraying the American people and Donald Trump, the convention was reunited by Eric Trump’s compelling and brilliant speech. Eric soared the crowd to new levels as he labeled his father “his hero, his best friend, and the President of the United States.”
“It’s an honor to be here for a man I love so, so, so much,” Eric Trump started in what would be an impassioned endorsement of his father.
It was so moving, Donald Trump began to cry.
Eric Trump built his speech on promoting his father’s resume, calling for a president with “common sense” who knows the “art of the deal,” referencing his father’s famous book. He made the case that Donald Trump is running for every class of American.
“If you’re sitting on the couch out of a job and unemployed, my father is running for YOU!,” proclaimed Eric as the crowd cheered in unison.
