Donald Trump's son Eric, following his father's lead, complained Monday morning that two new polls putting Hillary Clinton ahead were skewed because more Democrats than Republicans were questioned.
"They actually admitted to polling more Democrats than they did Republicans in that poll," Trump's son told Fox News' "Fox & Friends"
about the polls, one from NBC News/The Wall Street Journal and another from ABC News/The Washington Post over the weekend.
The NBC/WSJ poll put the presumptive GOP nominee at about 5 points behind Clinton, but the ABC/Post poll put Clinton ahead by 51-39 percent.
Trump said in battleground states, there are "hundreds and hundreds of thousands of Democrats and independents who went over to register during the primaries," and that his momentum is "tremendous."
On Sunday, Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack the polls:
Also on Monday, Trump's son defended his choice to go to Scotland to open his new Turnberry golf course, telling the show that his father was there to support him, not to use the Brexit news to promote his business interests, as a new ad from the Clinton campaign says.
"Every president is tested by world events, but Donald Trump thinks about how his golf resort can profit from them," the 30-second ad released Sunday says, reports NBC News
. "In a volatile world, the last thing we need is a volatile president."
"Hillary tried to spin it like he was out there playing golf," Eric Trump told the Fox News program.
"He was supporting me, no different than [when] I go to every debate to support him. That's what we do for each other."
The Brexit vote, he continued, was an "amazing thing, an iconic day. So sad if you look at what President [Barack] Obama said. He said that effectively the United Kingdom is going to get in the back of the line if this goes through."
The Brexit vote has many parallels to the United States, he continued, and his father "called it right."
"I spent a tremendous amount of time over there, and it's very much the same as the sentiment of the U.S. right now," Trump continued. "They want borders. They want security. They want jobs. They want faith.
"These are the same things that are happening in the United States right now. The fact that our leaders are missing these cues from the people, with our greatest allies is astonishing."
He also pushed back on complaints that his father talked about the golf resort's reopening, telling the program that he "talked about it for 10 minutes, but then for 45 minutes he talked about Brexit."
Further, Trump said his father "didn't touch a golf club in the 36 hours he was there," and complained that Obama, after "every single major tragedy we have had as a nation, do you know where he's been? He's been on a golf course."
Meanwhile, he said that Clinton called Brexit wrong.
"This is a secretary of state, supposed to be representing the United States interests abroad," he said. "She's supposed to have her finger on the pulse of what's going on and once again she got it wrong. No different than she got it in Libya, in Syria in Iraq and just about everywhere else we have gone into."
