Trump Jr. defends father on ‘The View’: He’s ‘controversial,’ but ‘took on the establishment’

President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. defended his father on “The View” Thursday, saying that the president is “controversial” but “took on the establishment.”

Trump Jr. responded to a question from Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R.-Ariz.), about whether he feels “good” about how he and his family “have hurt a lot of people.”

“I understand that he’s controversial,” Trump Jr. said. “I understand that he’s offended a lot of people, but I also understand he took on the establishment, and that’s the premier sin in American politics these days to do that.”

Trump Jr. described the president as a “counterpuncher” who is taking up the fight conservatives have neglected to do in the past.

{mosads}“My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American dream [for those] who’ve watched politicians with no business experience send that American dream abroad to countries that hate our guts,” he said on the show.

The president’s son has been a staunch defender of his father, denouncing Democrats, the media and even some Republicans for criticizing President Trump.

He has also backed his father in his push for investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
