Eric Trump isn’t backing down from putting the left on blast after he was allegedly spat on by a Chicago waitress recently.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Saturday night, the president’s son recalled the “heinous” incident. While he believes it’s not “reflective of parties,” Trump did point out that some Democrats have called for the harassment of Trump administration officials and other Republicans.
“I think that there’s almost no tolerance on the left,” he said. “They always call themselves the tolerant left, and you see very little tolerant out of that. Now, I don’t think that’s an action that’s indicative of party. I think you have a person who’s sick. You see these cases time and time again.”
“Look at Sarah Huckabee Sanders when she’s in restaurants getting screamed at. Look what happens to Ted Cruz. Look at certain people. You know, ‘When they’re down, go up and kick them in the face.’ You know, ‘It’s your duty to harass.'”

Trump then chalked up such behavior from the left to their concern that President Donald Trump will win reelection in 2020.
“They know they’re losing,” he said. “They know he’s done everything he said he was going to do and so much more.”
As IJR Red reported, the president’s son was allegedly spat on at a Chicago restaurant last week. At the time, he sounded off on the “disgusting act” and on Democrats for having “very little civility.” However, he does not plan to press charges.
The incident comes after several Republicans and Trump administration officials faced public harassment, including when former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant and when Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and his wife were chased out of another.
The string of incidents followed Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-Calif.) call for the public harassment of those associated with the president, as IJR Red noted.
