President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump told Breitbart News Tuesday night he was spit on at the Chicago cocktail lounge The Aviary by an employee.

"It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems. For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning."

President Trump told the New York Post on Wednesday that if the incoming House Democratic majority "harass" him by launching investigations into his administration, he would declassify documents related to the Russia probe that he claimed would be damaging to them.

"I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are."
— Trump told the publication

The backdrop: House Democrats are already preparing for an onslaught of hearings, subpoenas and investigations from Trump's family business dealings, tax returns and the Russia probe.
