Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, has spoken out about the backlash faced by his father following the violent U.S. Capitol riots that left multiple people dead.

According to the 37-year-old, moves to impeach his father and ban him from social media stem from “cancel culture”.

Speaking to The Associated Press on Tuesday, per CTV News, Trump’s son claimed that “cancel culture” had been impacting his family for a long time.

"We live in the age of cancel culture, but this isn't something that started this week. It is something that they have been doing to us and others for years," he said.

"If you disagree with them, if they don't like you, they try and cancel you," added the incumbent president’s son. 

Since the riots broke out, Trump has been banned from all major social media platforms, and banks that lend to him and his companies are reportedly refusing to work with the family any longer.

On top of that, he faces impeachment for the second time in his presidency.

However, Eric Trump doesn’t seem too phased about the fate of his father or the family’s businesses.

"You have a man who would get followed to the ends of the Earth by a hundred million Americans," claimed Eric Trump. 

"He created the greatest political movement in American history and his opportunities are endless," he added.

According to CTV News, Eric was asked during the interview if he believed his father was responsible for encouraging the crowd in Washington D.C. to march on the Capitol building.

He reportedly paused, before the line went dead.
