In the ongoing hush money trial involving former US President Donald Trump, tensions within the Trump family are surfacing.

Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, has accused him of paying $130,000 to former adult film star Stormy Daniels to aid his election campaign, rather than to protect his family as previously claimed.

This allegation was reported by the Frankfurter Rundschau.

Eric Trump's Fiery Response

Eric Trump, one of Donald Trump’s sons, reacted strongly to these claims during an interview with Fox News.

He criticized Cohen's reliability, labeling him "a convicted guy" and dismissing the credibility of having "a porn actress as a witness." Eric's frustration was evident as he defended his father against what he views as baseless accusations.

Eric suggested that Cohen's testimony might be influenced by personal bitterness, stemming from not being offered a position in the White House.

This, according to Eric, could be coloring Cohen's current stance against the former president.

The core of the allegations against Donald Trump centers around the alleged concealment of the true purpose of the payments made to Cohen. The prosecution argues that these were disguised as unrelated to campaign financing to circumvent campaign finance laws.

In his efforts to discredit Cohen further, Eric Trump pointed to Cohen's criminal past, suggesting that his history undermines his testimony.
