US President Donald Trump’s second son has denounced a joke about assassinating the president by American actor Johnny Depp.
Eric Trump appeared on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” where he said the 54-year-old Kentuckian should deal with “his own problems.”
“You see Johnny Depp and what he said, you know, ‘assassinate the president.’ Johnny Depp has his own problems, he has his own problems. Why don’t you go back to making movies and doing your own thing?” Eric Trump said Sunday.
On Thursday, Depp asked the audience at the Glastonbury Festival in England “when was the last time an actor assassinated a president.”
He later apologized for the “bad joke” in a statement to People magazine, asserting that it was not meant “to harm anyone.”

“I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump,” Depp said. “It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”
Eric Trump further complained about insults against the Trump family, particularly his pregnant wife.

“I have a pregnant wife. She’s seven months pregnant. If you just saw some of the comments that she receives from people, I mean, I couldn’t honestly say them on the air because they are so ghastly. But they are willing to attack a pregnant lady, somebody who is seven months pregnant,” he said. “They are willing to attack an 11-year-old boy, meaning my brother Baron who lives in the White House and at a fragile age. They are willing to go after my half-sister Tiffany, who is 22 years old who is going to law school.”
