6:04 pm
the hour, we are continuing with the countdown. go, the road to the white house, i am off to philadelphia. after the show today, david clark and i are going to be there, larry elder, my fellow talkshow host, dr. jon voight will join us in selected cities. we will be in philly tonight, ohio in columbus area near ohio stadium at the state university tomorrow afternoon. sunday we will be in tampa at the river church. orlando, inll be in winter springs at the star light. 2016details, go to decision .com. we are rallying the troops, encouraging the vote, getting people out there. at that is what eric trump has been doing. he is an executive vice president of development and acquisitions for the trump organization. he has a dad who is now arguably
6:05 pm
the most famous man in the world. let's welcome eric trump. eric trump: it is great to be back. i gotllagher: it is true, to believe your dad is now the most famous man on the planet. everybody knows who donald trump is, right? eric trump: it is amazing. it is hard to believe, when put in that context. mr. gallagher: the whole year has been hard to believe. right now, when we see the kind of momentum that your dad has. your father right now has, i believe, a really, really good shot. you look at some of these key states. cnn lays out the six ways he can win. we are looking at ohio, florida, new hampshire. incredible turnabout in virginia. that is just no question the cloud that hangs over mrs. clinton and the fbi investigation and all that stuff
6:06 pm
that has been revealed with wikileaks, it has taken its toll and given your dad a very good shot to be president of the united states. eric trump: not only a cloud that hangs over her because of the clinton foundation and the haiti, and deceit, uranium one come all the other scandals the clintons have had over the years. but a cloud hangs over our country. you know this better than anybody, we have $20 trillion worth of debt, broken education system, ranked 30th in the world. 70 -- we have lost 70,000 factories since nafta. not gone up ahas penny in the last 15 years. obamacare, premiums are going up and up. alone, premiums are up 116%.
6:07 pm
that is hitting people in their own wallets. i could go on and on. but there is a cloud that hangs over this country because of those cricket career politicians . that is only reason my father is in this race, to make america great again. he will do such a great job of that for this country. mr. gallagher: his message is resonating, drain the swamp. knocking over the apple cart, not doing business as usual. let's face it, that scares the heck out of people who have made a career out of being an establishment type. people isacy for many pretty terrifying. whofor the american people are not in the beltway, they seem to be saying, it is time to take this country in a different direction. i want to ask you, if i could, dadt the whole idea of your
6:08 pm
, and the difference between his performance on the campaign trail and hillary, and even president obama. president obama yesterday, flailing and attacking and going after your dad in a most epic way. she is doing the same thing. she does not seem to be beat -- be delivering a message about better would be a commander in chief, just hammering your dad. president obama: he spends a lot of time hanging out with the really wealthy folk, but you do not see him hanging out with working people unless they are cleaning his room. fairway on his golf course. guyare going to make this your champion, if you're working class? come on. somebody who has spent his life without ever showing regard for working folks. mr. gallagher: wow.
6:09 pm
if you do not mind, i wonder how many people barack obama has ever had on the payroll? i do believe your dad has employed more than a few people over the course of his at all life, hasn't he? eric trump: we employ well over 10,000 people. i find it ironic when i hear a quote like that. our president, in his hometown of chicago, has had 3000 shootings in chicago alone this year. he has not been back once. he is not been back once to his home state. he does not say, knock it off, we are better than this as americans. he does not try to bring peace to that city. instead, he is in martha's vineyard, the most elitist place in the country, playing golf, flying air force one there on our taxpaying dollars, so he can play another 25 rounds of golf. it is horrible. it is horrible when louisiana was sinking, underwater, people's lives were destroyed, coffins floating down the street.
6:10 pm
all the images we saw all over the news, he did not show up once. he was nowhere to be found. guess where he was? martha's vineyard, playing golf. disturbing that 95 million people -- his policies have drained manufacturing from this country. we have lost so many jobs, we are paying so much in taxes. obamacare is costing people so much money. he has hurt the middle class more than anybody. have 8 million more people on food stamps than before he entered. home ownership is at an all-time low in this country. i could go on and on. more people working 2, 3, 4 jobs just to get by. his policies have been devastating. have been devastating, and we need to put people back to work. no one is trying to win or work
6:11 pm
for this country anymore. mr. gallagher: eric trump is with us here on the mike gallagher show. you encouraged by the way hillary and president obama, and even mrs. obama are hammering your dad on the campaign trail. the otherheir -- on hand, he is sticking to the message and advancing his reason for wanting to run for president? there is a stark difference between these campaigns. is that encouraging to you? bill and hillary came out of the oval office, now they are worth a quarter of a billion dollars. peoplet a big fan of stealing e-mails, but the one good thing about wikileaks, we showed how corrupted these people are, donna brazile getting those debate questions to hillary, it is terrible.
6:12 pm
pennsylvania, she is campaigning in pennsylvania, which has always been a very blue state. why is it she campaigning there? because she is worried we will take it. i think we will win pennsylvania. look at nevada, we will win nevada. we are up six points in the polls. mr. gallagher: how about new hampshire. eric trump: look at michigan, where i am now. it is incredible. michigan has not gone red in 30 years, something like that. allre flipping states across the country because this is not a democrat versus republican race. this is about an insider versus the total outsider. hillary clinton has been a politician longer than i have been alive, and i am not a young millennial. i am at the older end of the spectrum. what do we have to show for it? is gallagher: everybody playing a game, they have to watch one state, look at ohio, florida. from your perspective, is there
6:13 pm
a certain state that will be the key to tuesday night for him? eric trump: i think we will win pennsylvania, michigan, nevada, new mexico. i think we have a really good shot at winning colorado. and those are all states republicans traditionally do not have. and if he holds believes he has everywhere else, it is game over. eric trump: absolutely. youthing i can tell you, see how hard he works out there on the campaign trail. he has the stamina, he is incredible. i called them the energizer not stop.does we need someone working that hard for the country, someone who cannot be bought, sold, bribed, purchased. my father cannot be. he has been incredibly successful, he needs nothing. it is really nice to have someone in the oval office, as isosed to somebody who,
6:14 pm
doing everything they can to line their own pockets. that is why a lot of people will become indicted when the fbi prosecutes. it looks like they are really considering doing that. some bad stuff is happening out there. my father will drain the swamp and fix the problem. and we will make america great again. mr. gallagher: i feel really good about what will happen on tuesday. you are not without your battle scars. you got in hot water over comments against david duke? caught up with a radio host like that. do you look back at that and say, every single word will get scrutinized because i have to be ready for it? eric trump: that is right. honestly, it is great. we put ourselves out there. my father has two people fighting for them, the american family, himself.
6:15 pm
mr. gallagher: and that is it. he is up against the world. that is what makes these poll numbers and the fact that he can win this thing so amazing. you have the whole media machine, $1 billion or more behind hillary, this is his story. no other way around it, it is historic what he has done. eric trump: sometimes even his own party. and the mainstream media. you know why he won the primaries? because the american people were staunchly behind them. if you are at his side, fighting with him. i will fight for him until i am dead, i believe he is the greatest man in the world. if you do not want to get hit, do not enter this process. mr. gallagher: i know how it feels, i have been fighting for him all year. the nevertrumpers and the
6:16 pm
machine, they do not like it. they would rather roll over. eric trump: there are some really ugly people in this business. it is very, very sad. bad, bad people who do bad, bad things. wikileaks andith so many other people. you really have some bad people within the political spectrum. and some ugliness that goes on. we are going to change that, take back our country. and we will make you very, very proud. mr. gallagher: i sure hope so, stay safe. i thank you for the time you have taken from the campaign trail. keep fighting the good fight, and let's hope for the best tuesday. eric trump: absolutely. mr. gallagher: eric trump, on the campaign trail for his dad. wrote it to the white house. we have some calls in, your reactions to all this. four days to go, are you ready? are we going to make it?

6:21 pm
this. is, that a disillusion of the union for the cause of slavery would cause a war between the two separate unions, that might be the x -- calamitous and desolating as this course of events in progress must be, so glorious would be its final issue, that -- judge may, i cannot say it is not to be desired.
