Eric Trump praises his father's 'courage' for not mentioning Bill Clinton's infidelity at the debate

Some kids will always remember their dad teaching them to ride a bike or taking them on that childhood camping trip. Eric Trump, on the other hand, says what he'll "always remember" about dad Donald Trump is when he so bravely refrained from mentioning former President Bill Clinton's infidelity during the presidential debate Monday. "I mean, he very well could've looked down — and he said it when he came off the debate stage, 'I wasn't gonna respond to that question because I saw Chelsea [Clinton] in the front row and I just wasn't gonna go there out of respect for her," Eric said during an interview Tuesday with 1040 WHO Iowa radio. "That was a big moment for me and probably will actually become ... something I'll always remember."

Eric said he thought it took "a lot of courage in so many regards" for his father to take "the high road" instead of retaliating against Hillary Clinton when she attacked him for his past poor treatment of women. "I'm really proud of him for doing that," Eric said. You can listen to the rest of Eric's praise for his father below, via BuzzFeed. Becca Stanek
