The Hill reports that Eric Trump, son of presumptive GOP nominee for president Donald Trump, has declared his sister based on her intelligence and “beautiful looks” is qualified for the vice-presidency.
Eric Trump on Thursday floated his sister Ivanka Trump as a potential running mate for his father.
“She’s got the beautiful looks, she’s smart, she’s smart, smart, smart,” Eric Trump said Thursday on Fox News. “She’s certainly got my vote.”
Trump noted that his sister will turn 35 just before the election — the minimum age required by the Constitution to be president or vice president.
“She just makes that by about seven, eight days,” he said, calling Ivanka Trump “a machine.”
For a campaign that denounces any kind of sexism is in play in this election cycle, I have to wonder why Eric Trump made a point of describing her appearance as part of her qualifications…?
