President Donald Trump's son, Eric, chastised the liberal media for upcoming books set for publication about the 2016 presidential election, saying reporters "continue to get it wrong," just as their predictions were for the president's campaign, and said his father was "well on his way" to making America great again.
Trump made the statements in a forward to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich's upcoming book, "Understanding Trump," which is due for a June 13 release, the Washington Examiner reported Friday.
"'Understanding Trump' is an inside look into possibly the greatest campaign of all time. My father gained the most primary votes of any GOP candidate in the history of the nation. He shattered registration records across the country. He turned traditional debates into 'must-see TV.'
"At a time when most would hold fast to a lifestyle that had become the epitome of the American Dream, my father chose to bring that dream back to those it had eluded for so long," he wrote.
"Many books will be written by the very people who got it wrong, and quite frankly, who continue to get it wrong, but this book will stand apart because Newt was one of the few who got it right — he is a friend and he was there from the beginning," he continued.
Trump explained Gingrich was able to understand the disconnect lawmakers in Washington and the media have with Americans who have felt left out in modern politics.
"He understood how disconnected career politicians and the mainstream media had become for so many Americans seeking the American Dream — an ideal that seemed unattainable to many for the first time in history," Eric Trump wrote.
He ended the remarks by writing the president's policies were already having a positive effect.
"As to my father, there is no greater man. He is compassionate and caring. He is brilliant and strong. More than anything, he deeply loves our great country. He ran on one promise, to Make America Great Again, and he is already well on his way!" he wrote.
