Eric Trump Rallies His Father's Supporters on New Hampshire Swing

Eric Trump, son of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, was in New Hampshire Tuesday to help rally supporters in the final stretch before Election Day.

In Manchester Eric Trump received a warm welcome: loud cheers, lots of photo requests and even autographs.

In his remarks, Eric Trump covered the campaign’s usual talking points: bashing the Affordable Care Act, describing the economy as in the gutter, and taking jabs at Hillary Clinton.

But his focus was not so much on attracting more supporters. With recent polls showing Clinton leading both nationally and in New Hampshire, the younger Trump’s aim seemed to be making sure his father’s fans are not losing faith.

“Two more weeks ago, believe me we are going to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – despite what the media says, early voting in some of these states in North Carolina, in Florida, in Ohio has been off the charts for us,” Trump told the packed headquarters in Manchester.

Eric Trump also made stops at campaign offices in Nashua, Salem and Stratham.
