Donald Trump's Son Eric: 'Our Country Will Gain a Lot of Respect Back with My Father as President'

Originally posted 09/23/2015 01:10PM

Having worked alongside his father, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, for the past 10 years, Eric Trump says he knows that his dad will turn the country around.

"I think my father will be a very direct president, to say the least," Eric, 31, told PEOPLE at the Ninth Annual Eric Trump Foundation Golf Invitational & Auction Dinner, which raised more than $2.2 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Z100 radio star Elvis Duran hosted the evening, and former Celebrity Apprentice star and comedian Gilbert Gottfried performed.

"My father is saying what everybody thinks, but is afraid to," says Eric, who works with his brother, Donald, Jr., 37, and his sister, Ivanka, 33, at The Trump Organization. "He is a straight shooter. He has a personality that's larger than life. He is smart, charismatic and pragmatic. He built a great company. He would do an incredible job as the leader of this nation. I think that a lot of nonsense that goes on will end in about two seconds. We're so proud of him."

"We weren't in any adversarial position. We had no controversies. He had his own personal controversies. It was a congenial, really great relationship."

Cosmopolitan Project

For the teams' fourth task, we had to come up with a four-page health and fitness layout layout for Cosmopolitan. Having Terrell Owens and Johnny Damon on our team really helped focus us on what we needed, content-wise. We also used our athletes as fitness models.

Keshia Knight Pulliam, best known for her role as the adorable Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show, was the first to get fired from Donald Trump's newest team of Celebrity Apprentice hopefuls.

As project manager, it was Pulliam's responsibility to ensure that her female-driven team – which included Housewives Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore – raised more money for charity than their male opponents, led by Geraldo Rivera.
