Eric Trump Calls Joe Biden and Kamala Harris 'Lazy', Asks 'Where Are These Two?'

Eric Trump has said President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are "lazy" compared to his father, former President Donald Trump, and claimed there's a "vacuum" of power at the White House.

Trump, who is executive vice president of the Trump Organization, spoke to Newsmax TV's Cortes & Pellegrino on Monday and highlighted the recent spike in gas prices and increased migrant crossings at the southern border, among other issues.

"You know, it's sad. My father had these problems under control," Trump said, calling the border situation "an absolute mess" and touting the U.S.-Mexico border wall, which was a major plank of the former president's 2016 campaign.

Trump compared Biden and Harris unfavorably to his father and criticized them for not giving more press conferences.

"I think they're lazy," Trump said. "I think they lack motivation. I think they lack the charisma to do what my father did.

"My father was on a plane every single day. He was literally going somewhere every single day and where are these two? Why don't you ever hear from them?

"They're not giving press conferences. They're not going out in the Rose Garden like my father was. They aren't doing press conferences as they're getting on Air Force One. They're not traveling anywhere. I mean, there just seems like there's a vacuum in Washington. There's no energy. There's no speed. There's no desire to actually fix these problems, and that's depressing."

"People are seeing the mess that these people are making of this country right now; they're seeing how bad these policies are," Trump went on.

"As all of it unravels, these people who might not have liked a little mean tweet once in a while – or might not have liked somebody who was less PC from personality standpoint – are actually kind of recoiling and saying, 'you know what, on second thought, that man was actually incredibly effective for this country versus what we have right now.'"

"And I think what it's going to lead to in 2022 is going to be incredible. I think what it's gonna lead to in 2024 is going to be something very special. I don't think it's the last you've seen of Trump to say the least," he said.

"I really think we're gonna have decisive victories because of it. I mean, Steve, you know you couldn't have a larger contrast between two world views, and this current worldview isn't working," he said.

Former President Trump has said he is considering another run at the White House in 2024 but has not yet made a formal announcement. Republicans will be hoping to take back the House of Representatives next year when Biden faces his first set of midterm elections.

Newsweek has asked the White House for comment.
