BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Every time there's an international incident, they say, well, the president is too nice to Vladimir Putin, that's because he has so many investments in Russia. Then he says, he's too open to letting this investigation play out, that's because he has investments in Saudi Arabia. You're running the Trump Organization. What's the reality?

ERIC TRUMP (DONALD TRUMP'S SON): There's zero investments in Russia, there's zero investments in Saudi. We have absolutely nothing to do with those countries, and, by the way, my father's been tougher on Russia than, probably, any human being in the world. That's what happens when you give offensive weapons to Ukraine, right? Obama never did that.
