It looks like “politicians” sons, alongside dentists, have joined the group of people that partake in the barbaric sport of killing endangered animals.
Donald Jr and Eric Trump were photographed with a leopard and other big game kills causing disgust across social media.
Trump made remarks on the issue during a press conference at his Trump Turnberry golf resort, during the Women’s British Open.
He stated: “My sons love to hunt, Eric is a hunter and I would say he puts it on a par with golf, if not ahead of golf. My other son, Don, is a hunter. They’re great marksman, great shots, they love it.”
Recently bad press has been like fertilizer to Donald Trump’s popularity, but his defense of his sons’ sport of slaughtering exotic African animals could be the kill shot to his presidential aspirations.
With the current uproar regarding Cecil the lion and animals rights in general this is a bad time for Trump to be making a stand on such a sensitive issue.
