The president's son, who serves as an executive vice president of the Trump Organization, scoffed at the idea that Biden would run on the same policies advocated under the Obama administration.

A poll released last month by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling firm showed Biden and Trump in a statistical dead heat in a hypothetical 2020 match-up.

Eric Trump on Thursday went on to push back against comments from former President Obama, who said in Canada this week that he was proud his own administration did not have scandals.

The president's son pointed to Obama administration incidents involving the National Security Agency monitoring program and the IRS targeting controversy.
