Eric Trump, the younger son of President Trump, supported his father during the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.
ERIC TRUMP: Good evening, America. When I stood on this convention stage four years ago, no one fully understood the historic change that was about to take place. We could all feel it. Something was happening. A movement was forming just below the surface. The forgotten man and woman, voiceless in Washington, DC, were preparing to rise up.
Our movement followed the pattern of so many that came before us. First we were ignored. Then we were laughed at. Then they fought us. And then, together, we won.
From that moment forward, America came first. America started winning again. America became respected again. But with every movement, there's a counter-movement.
In the view of the radical Democrats, America is the source of the world's problems. As a result, they believe the only path forward is to erase history and forget the past. They want to destroy the monuments of our forefathers. They want to disrespect our flag, burn the stars and stripes that represent patriotism and the American dream.
They want to disrespect our national anthem by taking a knee while our armed forces lay down their lives every day to protect our freedom. They do not want the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools. Many of them don't want one nation under god.
The Democrats want to defund and disrespect our law enforcement. The Democrats want an America where your thoughts and opinions are censored when they do not align with their own. President Reagan said, freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, and it must be protected.
This is the fight that we are in right now. And it is a fight that only my father can win. My father ran not because he needed the job, but because he knew hard-working people across this great country were being left behind. The media mocked these patriots and the flyover states in which they lived.
