"My father is running [because] he's tired of seeing us taken advantage of. He's tired of seeing us used. He's tired of seeing currencies of countries manipulated," Eric Trump said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. 

"At the same time, while Hillary was Secretary of State ... her and Bill made $141 million. Here's a person who's supposed to be going around the world representing the United States's interests. ... It's abuse of power. It's corruption within government." 

Trump said that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, should have been the country's "greatest diplomat" but was giving speeches "every night" at Goldman Sachs and bringing in millions. 

"All while being a government employee," Trump added. 

"As a nonpolitician, I think I just roll my eyes. ... It's really the worst thing imaginable. And that's why my father has self-funded his campaign up to this point. 

"He doesn't need this job, but he wants to do something for this country that has given him so much."
