Appearing on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" last night, Eric Trump defended his father against the Russian "hoax" claiming that as a member of the campaign, he could say from personal experience that the election victory had nothing to do with Russians.

"You know why my father won?  Because he went to Ohio, and he went to Michigan, he went to Wisconsin.  And he worked a lot harder and he had a better message and he sold that to the American people and they ultimately wanted a businessman in Washington, D.C., not a career politician.  That’s why my father won."
