Eric Trump Agrees Sister Ivanka Would Make a Great VP

Eric Trump and Sen. Bob Corker agree: Ivanka Trump would make a great running mate for GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

"I agree, right?" Trump's son told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program, grinning widely. "She's got the beautiful looks. She's smart, she's smart, smart, smart. She's certainly got my vote."

Trump said his sister will be 35-years-old on Oct. 30, so she'd meet the constitutional requirement that a president be at least 35-years-old "by you know, seven, eight days."

He also agreed with show co-host Ainsley Earhardt's assessment that his sister has good business sense, replying "she's amazing."

Corker on Wednesday, while removing himself from contention as Trump's running mate, told MSNBC that Ivanka, who has been described as her father's most influential advisor, would be his best running mate, although he knows "that wouldn't pass muster, probably. But I don't know that I've met a more composed, brilliant, beautiful-in-every-way person."

But, Trump said his father has plenty of choices when it comes to a running mate, as many people are calling and asking to be put on the list.

"He's going to pick somebody who is immensely competent, that's not going to just win him a state," said Trump. "He wants somebody who is incredibly loyal and do a great job."

Trump also discussed his father's reaction to the news that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton would not face charges in connection with her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

"He is furious," Trump said. "They said she was reckless, that she compromised national security, she shouldn't have done it and she knowingly, under the oath of perjury, she said she turned over new emails and every single day more emails are discovered and more are discovered. Just the constant lies and the constant deceit, I think the American people are sick of it."

The presumptive nominee is meeting with Senate leaders in Washington Thursday morning, and his son said that he is there to get to know some of the people, and predicted he'll have a "great day."

He also defended his father over a tweet that contained an image of Clinton atop a pile of money and a six-pointed star, calling the reaction the "craziness in politics."

"You know my sister is Jewish right? My brother-in-law is Jewish," he said. "We hire more Jewish people in our organization than anybody. I mean, half of the organization is Jewish. This is the worst part of politics."
