On Thursday, President Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr. called out potential 2024 Republican presidential hopefuls for not showing enough support for his father.
Trump Jr. criticized a “total lack of action” from those who may become a candidate in four years.
“The total lack of action from virtually all of the ‘2024 GOP hopefuls’ is pretty amazing. They have a perfect platform to show that they’re willing & able to fight but they will cower to the media mob instead. Don’t worry @realDonaldTrump will fight & they can watch as usual!” Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.
A Lack of Support?

Meanwhile, Trump’s other son, Eric Trump, also talked about what he sees as a lack of GOP action to support his father.
“Where are Republicans! Have some backbone. Fight against this fraud. Our voters will never forget you if your [sic] sheep!” he tweeted.
According to The Hill, Trump’s sons “called on Republicans to step up efforts to defend their father” as his campaign and GOP officials “scramble to file lawsuits in several states to stop vote-counting as estimates show the president beginning to lose ground to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.”
Later after Trump Jr.’s initial tweet, several Republicans spoke up on Twitter.
“All votes that are legally cast should be counted. There is NO excuse not to allow poll watchers to observe counting,” tweeted Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.).
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) also shared her thoughts on Twitter. He said: “We all owe @realDonaldTrump for his leadership of conservative victories for Senate, House, & state legislatures. He and the American people deserve transparency & fairness as the votes are counted. The law must be followed. We have to keep the faith that the truth will prevail.”
