Donald Trump's eldest son said that becoming the president of U.S. and moving into the White House would be a "step down" for his billionaire father, The Hill reported.

"Unlike Hillary Clinton, who's gotten very rich being a politician, peddling American influence, he hasn't — this is only a step down," Trump Jr. told Fox News after the third and final presidential debate.

 

 

"He hasn't spent his whole life to be up on the debate stage like a career politician," he said. "He spent his life creating jobs, building things, doing things that would benefit American workers in this country."

Lauding his father's presidential bid, he said, "Imagine, if he was doing this for his whole life, he'd be the greatest politician in the history of the world."

This is not the first time Trump Jr. has made such a gaffe.

In September, he stirred a controversy after he compared Syrian refugees to Skittles candy.

"If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you," he tweeted, "Would you take a handful? That's our Syrian refugee problem."
