Eric Trump Receives Criticisms After Admitting Forcing Children to Recite Pledge of Allegiance

Eric Trump, the second-eldest child of twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, revealed to the founder of the ReAwaken America tour Clay Clark and pseudo-prophet Julie Green, that he subjects his preschool-aged children to strict daily routines.

Required Prayer, Pledge of Allegiance

He said this include required prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States.

Trump was cited as saying, “Every morning at 4:30 a.m., I get out of bed and lead my five-year-old and three-year-old in the Pledge of Allegiance.”

“They even say them now, and they say them beautifully. After saying the Lord’s Prayer and two additional family prayers, I have them express something important to them,” according to Trump.

The son of the former president said, “I do this every single night at 7:45, and no matter where I am in the world if I can’t be there, I’m doing it on FaceTime with my wife and kids. I see my – and, honestly, guys – that’s how I live a clean, happy life.”

Trump was caught in 2017 siphoning off charitable donations meant for terminally ill children with cancer into his family’s businesses.

The Eric Trump Foundation reportedly siphoned $59,085 from donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in 2012 to use for its annual golf invitational fundraiser at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York, according to IRS documents, ABC News reported at the time.

Social Media Response

What Trump sanctimoniously shared with the right-wing religious fundamentalists received a negative response on social media:

“The more frequently someone publicly declares their piety, the more probable it is that they are not religious.”

“Was that before or after the children of cancer sufferers’ money was stolen?”

Then I go rip off the taxpayer with my tax-scamming family business, The Trump Organization.”
