Eric Trump dismissed the article as a "hack job" while calling the media the "worst part of society." 

"It was such a disgusting article, and that's The Washington Post, and that's their M.O., unfortunately. Every article is just a pure kill job," Trump said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.

The Post reported that Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpRussia's election interference is a problem for the GOP Pence to pitch trade deal during trip to Michigan: report Iran oil minister: US made 'bad mistake' in ending sanctions waivers MORE hasn't personally given to his own foundation since 2008. And of the 188 charities the Post contacted that had some connection to the billionaire, 11 received a personal donation, while 44 declined to comment. Another 48 didn't respond to the Post's inquiries. An additional 85 had no record of receiving a personal donation from Trump. 

But Eric Trump claimed the opposite. 

"Charity is such a big part of our company and of our lives. My father has contributed so much to what I've done. He contributes so much to every charity," he said. 

"The worst part of society is that you can't have an objective and unbiased media. ... You know, it's a hack job, and it's done for various reasons. It's very, very sad."
