Eric Trump told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that the Republicans' failed effort to repeal and replace Obamacare was "disappointing," but that President Donald Trump "will get it done."
"The swamp is far deeper than I ever thought it was, which is pretty shocking," Trump, 33, told "The Joe Pags Show" in an exclusive interview.
"I had a front-row seat to this whole crazy thing — and I thought it was pretty deep."

He noted that Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican who cast last month's vote killing legislation to end several basic elements of the Affordable Care Act, "fund-raised off of that promise to repeal and replace Obamacare."
"You take a guy like John McCain — and God bless him and everything that he's been going through — but he fund-raised off of that promise to repeal and replace Obamacare."
McCain, 81, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, was re-elected to a sixth term in November.
"Then, he was the one vote that threw the thing into a tailspin, which is shocking," Trump said. "That was his promise.
"That's not very settling to me personally. It's disappointing."
But Trump believes that the president will succeed in repealing the healthcare law.
"What I give my father tremendous, tremendous credit for is that he will not stop," he told Pags. "He will not stop.
"He promised to repeal and replace — and, mark my words, he will get it done.
"He will get it done.
"He will get tax reform done," Trump added. "He will keep this economy booming.
"These things are very, very, very important."
