Eric Trump Wants to Meet Jesus Christ and Ask Him About Joe Biden

Eric Trump has said Jesus Christ would be his ideal dinner guest and he would ask him about President Joe Biden and the contrasts between Democrats and Republicans.

Trump, the 38-year-old son of former President Donald Trump, made the comment in an interview with Candace Owens for conservative outlet The Daily Wire.

Biden won the 2020 presidential election, but Donald Trump and some of his allies have repeatedly made false claims that the election was stolen from him, as well as offering fierce criticisms of Biden's first year in the White House.

In the interview aired on Tuesday, Owens asked Eric Trump for his ideal dining companion "dead or alive," adding that he couldn't choose his father.

"How about Jesus?" Trump replied.

Owens responded that Jesus was a good answer and asked what Trump would ask him at that hypothetical dinner.

Trump joked: "Did you envision this happening to the United States of America?"

He added: "Did you ever envision a person as incompetent as Joe Biden running the United States of America? How in the world did this happen?"—prompting laughter from Owens.

Trump then appeared to address the question more seriously, saying: "Honestly, I might ask him if this is actually a ploy to show people the difference between Republican leadership and Democratic leadership. Sometimes I think about that."

He went to praise his father's record on unemployment and manufacturing and criticized President Biden for inflation and supply chain problems, among other issues.

Returning to the theme of differences between Republicans and Democrats, he said: "You see this dichotomy between two people, and that stark contrast—does that actually help educate the United States? And I think it really might."

Eric Trump also said he believed that the election had been stolen from his father. Courts and election officials have consistently rejected claims of mass voter fraud and other irregularities.

Trump, who is executive vice president at the Trump Organization, described himself as a "guy who wants nothing to do with politics who's just representing somebody that they love tremendously."

In the interview with Owens, he also expressed criticism of COVID-19 vaccines—taking a different line than his father, who has made frequent statements supporting vaccination.

"To me, the vaccine represents literally the stripping of freedoms in this country, which is deeply, deeply, deeply troubling," Eric Trump told Owens.

"If [Democrats are] willing to strip your rights to your own health care, well, what are they willing to do to religion? What are they willing to do to the Second Amendment? What are they willing to do to our Constitution?" he said.

Newsweek has asked the Trump Organization for comment.
