During the second night of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, Eric Trump heavily criticises Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, claiming that Biden did "not know the slightest thing about the American worker or the American business" and had accomplished "nothing" during his entire governmental career. He further added that Biden was "a total pushover for Communist China" whose presidency would be "a giant relief for terrorists."

Eric Trump also accused Democrats of wanting to "disrespect our national anthem by taking a knee, while our armed forces lay down their lives every day to protect our freedom" and to "destroy the monuments of our forefathers."

Voting for Donald Trump would be a vote for "the American spirit, the American dream and the American flag," and would ensure that "freedom will never be a thing of the past," so Eric Trump.

"In closing, I’d like to speak directly to my father," Trump said during the end of his speech. "I miss working alongside you every day but I’m damn proud to be on the front lines of this fight. I am proud of what you are doing for this country."
