Eric Trump wonders what the media reaction would be if it was found out his father Donald Trump received a debate question in advance. From Sunday's broadcast of ABC's This Week:
STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me finish on this first, though. Your father has said he's going to sue.
If he's president, does he really want to be involved in a legal suit like this?
TRUMP: I don't know. You know, you -- my father is a guy who -- who will fight and he will fight for this country and he's always fought for himself. And quite frankly, throughout this whole process, he's needed to fight for himself.
And he believes in a right and a wrong. And -- and when he feels that there's injustice, I think you should stand up to ourselves. And quite frankly, we wouldn't have the problems that we have in this nation right now if somebody did a better job -- if our politicians did a better job standing up for our country.
And he stands up for himself. He's a fighter. That's who my father is. And he -- and quite frankly, he's a great fighter. And, you know, he believes in calling out right and wrong.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But, you know, several of these -- he says these stories have been debunked, but at least in one case, the "People" magazine reporter, she told six different friends and colleagues at the time.
TRUMP: George, I just don't believe it. I just don't believe it. And then you come out now with -- with -- with three weeks left in an election, three weeks left in an election. And you know what somebody told me?
They go, Eric get ready for October. They told me this months and months ago, get ready for October. Your family will live through the worst, most unthinkable, hardest month of your lives. Get ready for October.
What they'll throw at you, what the Clinton machine will throw at you, you know, the dirty tricks, the things that will come out, the things that they'll orchestrate.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But do you have any evidence...
STEPHANOPOULOS: -- the candidates are behind this?
TRUMP: -- it's unlike -- well, listen, you see that -- you see the hidden videos. That's pretty bad stuff. When they're talking about going out, paying...
STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, I was talking about these other allegations.
TRUMP: -- paying people to commit voter fraud, paying people to go incite fights at -- at rallies which get people hurt, I -- I think you see their true colors.
I think you also see their true colors in -- in these WikiLeak emails, where they're going out making fun of Christians, making fun of Evangelicals, making fun of "needy Latinos," when Donna Brazile is giving debate questions to Hillary ahead of time. I mean, George, you -- you know us for a long time.
Can you imagine what would happen if my father got the debate questions?
STEPHANOPOULOS: You'd get pilloried, there's no question about that.
