President Donald Trump’s son Eric appeared on Fox News Saturday night, where he gave an interview to host Jeanine Pirro.
Pirro asked the president’s son whether it was possible that his father’s charged rhetoric inspired the MAGAbomber who lived in a van plastered with Trump’s face or the synagogue shooter who believed far-right conspiracy theories about Jews.
“Is this a sign of the rhetoric, and the outrage people are hearing?” Pirro asked. “Is there any correlation between the two?”
“I don’t know. Listen—there might be, there might not be,” Eric Trump said.
Trump then said the shooter was a “very, very sick, deranged person” and “subhuman.”
Trump said that “it seems like we’ve gotten to a point where everything has to be politicized.”
The politically motivated terror attacks should not be politicized, Trump said.
“I think we should try to pull politics out of these things,” Trump said. “He doesn’t represent the left, he doesn’t represent the right.”

BUSTED: Newly uncovered White House budget docs undercut one of Trump’s last defenses in Ukraine scandal
President Donald Trump's insistence that he only pushed Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden because he was concerned about "corruption" has been one of his primary defenses against House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.
However, the Washington Post has uncovered some White House budget documents that directly undercut the president's defense.
According to the Post, the Trump administration "has sought repeatedly to cut foreign aid programs tasked with combating corruption in Ukraine and elsewhere overseas" even though the White House has insisted that it is laser-focused on promoting good governance in the country.
Rick Perry quickly gets stumped after claiming House impeachment inquiry is breaking the law
Speaking on the Fox Business Network this Wednesday morning, outgoing Energy Secretary Rick Perry tried to dispel speculation that his coming resignation is due to his alleged involvement in the Ukraine fiasco enveloping the White House, saying that he had been planning to resign for "eight or nine months."
Perry jumped right into the subject of the impeachment inquiry targeting President Trump and the fact that his former department will not comply with a House subpoena for documents.
