Eric Trump on government shutdown: 'Honestly, I think it's a good thing for us'

The president's second son said the shutdown paints Democrats in a bad light.

In fact, he views it in a positive light because he believes it paints the "absolutely terrified" Democrats in a negative light.

Trump, 34, told Pirro that the Democrats are supportive of the shutdown because it takes the focus off of his father's achievements.

"The only reason they want to shutdown government is to distract and to stop his momentum," the president's third child said. "I mean, my father has had incredible momentum. He has gotten more done in one year than arguably any president in history."

He continued, "And so how do they divert from that message? How do they save their own party when they don't have any leadership, they don't have any good candidates out there, they don't have a message of their own? How do they do that? They obstruct, they distract, they try and place blame."
