Donald Trump Jr. told Fox News on Monday that the media's "vicious" coverage of him and his father doesn't bother him "one bit," adding, "I kind of enjoy the fight."
Trump was asked how he thought the media would cover him if he entered politics, presumably as a candidate, since Trump noted that he's "already in the political arena" by campaigning for his father and Trump-supporting Republicans.
"So you can see in the media's coverage of me that they're pretty vicious," he said. "But the truth is, it doesn't bother me one bit. In fact, I kind of enjoy the fight. I think the mainstream media has so discredited themselves over the past few decades and especially over the past four years, that most people outside of the beltway don't take their lies, smears, and attacks very seriously at this point. It's actually sad because the American people deserve and expect a free press who they can trust to tell the truth in an unbiased way, but with very few exceptions, that's not what we have today."
He also said that if he "had done a fraction of what" former Vice President Joe Bidens Son "Hunter Biden has openly admitted to doing, the Democrats would have thrown me in jail," pointing to Biden's job on the board of a Ukrainian energy company and his position on the board of Amtrak.
"The reality is me and my family were international business people before politics, and we have always been damn good at it," Trump said. "With the Bidens, they only became an international business by selling Joe's taxpayer-funded office."
