Donald Trump Jr. appeared on “The View” on Thursday to talk about his new book, Triggered. During the interview, Meghan McCain told him that he and his “family have hurt a lot of people.”
“Mr. Trump, a lot of Americans in politics miss character,” McCain claimed, “And a lot of people miss the soul of this country. You and your family have hurt a lot of people and put a lot of people through a lot of pain, including the Khan family who is a Gold Star family that I think should be respected for the loss of their son. Does all of this make you feel good?”
“I don’t think any of that makes me feel good, but I do think that we got into this because we wanted to do what’s right for America,” Trump Jr. responded.
He then began talking about the president’s economic policies and how the unemployment for African Americans is at an all time low. However, he was rudely interrupted by moderator Whoopi Goldberg saying, “Oh come on.”
The president’s oldest son continued, stating that he does understand that Trump has “offended a lot of people.” He added, “But I also understand he took on the establishment and that’s the premier sin in American politics these days, to do that.”
"You and your family have hurt a lot of people…including the Khan family," @MeghanMcCain says. "Does all of this make you feel good?"

“I understand what you’re saying about policy, but when you’re talking about attacking Gold Star families, who have given the ultimate sacrifice, more than any of us in this room have given, and you put them through pain — does it make you feel like this was worth it?” McCain asked again.
Trump Jr. responded, “When he’s under constant attack by the same people, when he’s under attack by the establishment, the reality is this: He’s a counterpuncher.”
I have to say that I agree with Don Jr. Our president is controversial to those who got comfortable with having a snowflake like Obama as our president for eight years. We are under new management though, and he is cleaning house! America is being made great again!
