Eric Trump has been no stranger to controversy. Now, he's spoken out once again about his father and he didn't hold back...

Trump has hardly been a president free of controversy.

But it seems his son Eric still holds him up as a beacon of morality and good.

And he hasn't been afraid of speaking out...

Just days after claiming his father saved Christianity, he has now made another shocking statement.

Now, on September 29, Trump took part in the first presidential debate.

Trump V Biden was never going to be a civilized affair, but the scenes that unfolded were nothing short of brutal.

Tensions between the candidates have been bubbling for some time now...

And, it seemed that their mutual feelings of resentment finally reached a boiling point.

And, in a moment many weren't expecting...

Biden suddenly lashed out at President Trump when he continued to speak over him.

While many have criticized Biden for his unprofessionalism...

Others have applauded the candidate, noting that he "said to Trump what they've been wanting to say for the last 4 years."

There were many eye-opening moments from the ninety-minute debate.

For example...

The president was grilled on the newly surfaced allegations regarding his income tax.

Asked if it was true that he paid just $750 in income tax in 2016, as reported by The New York Times last week, Trump said, without hesitation: "I paid millions of dollars in taxes, of income tax." Biden used this opportunity to ask for evidence of these tax payments, adding that Trump "takes advantage of the tax code."

Trump was also asked to condemn white supremacist groups...

But instead chose to focus on the left. He said: "Sure I'm willing to do that, but almost everything I see is from the left-wing. I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace." And, when asked to give this group of people a name, he responded with "Proud Boys." Proud Boys, a neo-Nazi organization, appeared to use Trump's "stand back, stand by" call in a new logo posted on Telegram shortly after the debate.

The President did provide some good news with regards to a coronavirus vaccine, however.

When Biden pointed out that 200,000 Americans have died during the pandemic as a result of the President's "lack of plan", Trump retaliated by insisting that "millions would have died if Biden was in charge." He then added that the US is "weeks away" from a vaccine, and his administration had done a "great job."

Biden's son, Hunter, was then dragged back into the firing line.

The President brought up Biden's son, claiming the mayor of Moscow's wife gave him millions of dollars and raising questions over his links with Ukraine. He also mentioned Hunter's drug problems.

Clearly, his words about Hunter hit a nerve with Biden.

"His family we can talk about all night," Biden clapped back, adding that "it's hard to get any word in with this clown - excuse me, this person". The pair also clashed over Biden's now-deceased son, Beau, and his military service.

The insults continued to flow.

"Everything he's saying here is simply a lie, everybody knows he's a liar," Biden said during an exchange about healthcare. He also called Trump "the worst president this country has ever had."

And, of course, President Trump didn't take them quietly.

via: Getty

Not to be outdone, Trump got in plenty of digs as well, firing at his opponent: "There's nothing smart about you Joe. Forty-seven years, you've done nothing."

But, out of their many valiant attempts to slander one another...

via: Getty

There was one moment that stood out amongst the rest.

Now, not everyone was too impressed...

With many finding the moment to be "unprofessional" on Biden's part.

However, on the other hand...

People have found a whole new level of respect for Biden, and have even called his words the "highlight" of the evening.

Because, as you may have already heard...

via: Getty

Biden actually told the president to "shut up."

Yep, it's something many dream of doing one day.

The moment came during the first segment of the debate on the topic of the Supreme Court and people were living for it, to say the least.

But now, news has come in that could put Trump's future leadership in jeopardy.

It has been confirmed that the President and his First Lady have been infected with the virus that has already killed 208,000 Americans and devastated the economy.

But on the other hand, lots of angry and spiteful messages have been thrown at the pair following their diagnosis.

Even though the virus has a fairly steady survival rate...

Seventy-four-year-old President Trump is actually in the high-risk category.

The statistics speak for themselves.

via: Getty

According to CDC statistics, patients between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-four are 5 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than someone aged eighteen to twenty-nine.

This means that patients of Trump's age have ninety times greater chance of death than others...

Which isn't at all good news for the President.

Following the huge news...

Trump's son, Eric, spoke out, asking people to pray for his dad.

More specifically Eric Trump said:

"Donald Trump is a true warrior. He will fight through this with the same strength and conviction that he uses to fight for America each and every day."

But that wasn't all...

"I ask you to join me in praying for his recovery. I have never been more proud of someone and what they have had to endure."

However, Eric ended up at the center of controversy last week after what else he said about his dad.

via: Getty Images

Eric made some controversial claims about Trump during a recent interview with a North Dakota radio station, and it hasn't gone down so well with people.

In the audio recording, Eric claimed that his father "saved Christianity."

via: Getty Images

Yep, really.

After the audio emerged on social media...

via: Getty Images

Twitter couldn't stop mocking him.

And now...

He's spoken out once again.

Eric was interviewed by ABC on Sunday morning.

via: Getty Images

And was asked about a new NYT report suggesting Trump engaged in several alleged pay-for-play deals with private companies.

Rather than respond to the allegations...

via: Getty Images

Eric instead accused ABC, the Democrats, and the NYT of sabotaging Trump.

But, he also went on to say something that made everyone turn their heads...

via: Getty Images

Eric says his father has "lost a fortune" during his presidency and actually doesn't need the job at all. "The last thing ... Donald Trump needs in the world is this job,"

Eric went on to say that his father sticks it out because it's the "right" thing to do for America.

Although let's be honest, they'll definitely be a fair share of people that would be happy for him to be shown the door if he really doesn't need the gig. For more political controversy, scroll on...
