Trump Jr. spars on ‘The View’ on eve of appearance in The Villages

Donald Trump Jr. sparred with the ladies on “The View” on the eve of his visit to The Villages.

The president’s son was a guest on the ABC show Thursday morning ahead of his appearance at 3 p.m. Saturday at Barnes & Noble at Lake Sumter Landing to promote his book, “Triggered: How The Left Thrives On Hate And Wants To Silence Us.”

The president’s eldest son faced some direct questioning from Meghan McCain, daughter of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain. She asked about candidate Trump’s denigration of a Gold Star family during the campaign.

Trump Jr., with girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle seated next to him at the famed television table, wasn’t afraid to defend his father and took it right back to McCain, who was wearing a gold necklace bearing her family’s name.

“Part of being president is having a pair… My father’s got a pair. No sitting president has taken the heat that President Trump has,” he said. 

Candidate Trump famously criticized John McCain for being captured during the Vietnam War.

Donald Trump Jr. appeared Thursday on “The View.”

Meghan McCain repeatedly challenged the younger Trump on the notion of character.

“We have ceded ground to the liberals and the liberal elite for decades by not actually fighting back. I understand we can keep going back to character. I think he has great character,” Trump Jr. said of his father.

The younger Trump’s visit to Florida’s Friendliest Hometown comes a little more than a month after his father made a stop in the community. During that Oct. 3 appearance at the Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center, the president signed an executive order to protect Medicare while also labeling Democrats as “maniacs.”

Those who will get to see Trump Jr. at Barnes & Noble have paid $32.10 for his book in advance of his appearance.
