Eric Trump becomes second Trump to appear on radio show with ties to white nationalism
Eric Trump appeared on a radio program with ties to white nationalist James Edwards on Wednesday, proving yet again that the Trump campaign doesn’t seem too concerned about its image, according to Right Wing Watch. He’s the second Trump to do so.
The young Trump spoke with “Liberty Roundtable” host Sam Bushman about Tuesday’s vice presidential debate, as well as how his father will save America’s “inner cities.”
Edwards is the host of the racist radio show “The Political Cesspool,” which he founded in 2005 just outside of Memphis, Tennessee.
The show’s mission statement suggests that it “stands for the Dispossessed Majority” and is “pro-white,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
After appearing on “Liberty Roundtable” with Bushman and Edwards earlier this year, Donald Jr. was under fire for agreeing to speak on the show with the white nationalist.

He denied knowing that Edwards would be on the show or that he had any knowledge of his background, claiming “He was brought into the interview without my knowledge.” He added, “Had I known, I would have obviously never done an interview with him,” Bloomberg reported at the time.
Now that Eric spoke on the same radio talk show on which his brother appeared, it would seem that the Trump campaign isn’t even trying to distance itself from the white nationalist movement.
