Eric Trump has come to the aid of his brother amid the release of emails. In a tweet that contained a link to a radio show by a prominent U.K. Conservative, father Donald Trump’s third child expressed support for the Trump family and denounced the constant efforts to slander.

The clip of the radio show he linked to shows host Nigel Farage speaking about the potential reaction to the release of emails by Donald Trump Jr. He had released the emails of his communication with Russian contacts via Twitter. Farage said the emails don’t indicate Russian interference with the election. He also rather emphatically states that Trump Jr. is the best public supporter of his father.

Donald Trump has also showed his support for his son. According to a press briefing picked up by The Hill he stated, “My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency.”

The Trump family is publically coming to each others aid in a way not previously seen among other presidential families. Farage recognizes this and also indicates that the emails aren’t much of an issue since they don’t indicate previous contact with Russian sources, and they also don’t indicate meddling, since the information on Hillary Clinton was never obtained anyway.
