During a recent interview, Eric Trump lauded Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin as an ideal partner for his father Donald in his administration if he gets elected into office. According to Eric, Johnson is the type of politician who can help enact Donald’s vision for the country as president.
Within just a few days before the election next week, Eric explained how Johnson will be able to serve as valuable member of Donald’s administration. Currently, Johnson, who assumed office in 2011, is struggling with an uphill battle against former Senator Russ Feingold of the Democratic Party, who has 18 years of experience working in the Senate.
However, as noted by Eric, Feingold’s long tenure as a senator isn’t what the country needs right now since as seen in the previous years, career politicians often lack the proper drive to address current pressing matters.
“People want somebody who’s not a career politician to fix problems,” Eric told the Associated Press via Darien News. “Our politicians have done very, very little for this country.”
According to Pete Meachu, the spokesperson for Donald’s campaign party in Wisconsin, although Johnson is the underdog in the senatorial race against Feingold, he still has the proper knowledge and skills to help Donald from within Washington.
“The Wisconsin Senate race is tighter than ever because everybody knows Ron Johnson is the outsider running against Senator Feingold, a failed career politician who has spent decades in Washington failing to fix our country’s problems,” he said.
“I’m here to speak on behalf of my father but I think you need someone to set a macro vision for the country and then align smart, competent people to execute that,” Eric added about Johnson.
The move by Eric and Donald’s party to push for Johnson in the Senate is still part of the Republican Party’s plan to maintain majority control over the country’s House of Representatives and the U.S. Congress. For the GOP, establishing a strong presence in the government will be able to ensure the success of Donald’s administration.
