While Eric Trump may not be as popular as his big sister Ivanka, he still holds his own as a Trump in many respects. Like his older brother Donald Trump Jr., Eric has his hands full, managing the business affairs of their father, President Donald Trump.
Although he did not appear much during the 2016 Presidential Election campaign, he has been a staunch supporter of his father’s policies. In addition, he has had to endure the most of public antagonism against the President by virtue of his last name.
Like his father, he often commits the occasional blunder, especially on social media. On July 11, just days after a shooting incident in Dallas during a Black Lives Matter rally, he went online and tried to trade in some guns he owned. This clearly did not sit well with a lot of Trump critics.
Nevertheless, despite his gaffes, it looks like Eric is still a decent kind of person. Eyewitnesses near the F train stop near 57th Street and 6th Avenue said Eric ran through traffic in a bid to help a woman who was sickly on the street.

According to the Washington Examiner, the eyewitness, who chose to remain anonymous, said Eric left his Secret Service detail and almost got hit by a cyclist.
I watched as Eric looked up, spotted an ambulance slowly passing by on 6th, ran into traffic — almost getting hit by a bicyclist — and shouted at the ambulance to get its attention.
Thankfully, the ambulance stopped and paramedics on board attended to the woman. Eric eventually entered his waiting vehicle and left the scene.
AWESOME, I ADMIRE HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS ALWAYS DONE IN AMERICA ALONG WITH HIS WIFE, THEY ARE A GREAT FAMILY,LIKE YOURS SARAH, GODBLESS YOU BOTH— Barre Wilks (@Barre40077094) July 3, 2018
Eric, in an interview with Secrets, said the incident was unplanned and he just did what he could to help a stranger.
I’m glad we were able to play a small role in getting help for the woman on 58th Street. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I’m especially grateful to the EMTs who took over. It was certainly my first time hailing an ambulance in New York City.
The incident was largely unnoticed as there wasn’t a crowd present when it happened. There are some Americans who think the entire incident was staged by the Trumps to attract some sympathy for the President and his family.
She is a paid crisis actor. Fake news.— Chaun Erickson (@thabeardedape) July 3, 2018
Too bad he didn’t get hit by a car— andrew (@jacket506) July 3, 2018
That's nothing news worthy 😂😂 Anyone would have helped her. Not a hero but good try.— Maria (@Hizo2737) July 3, 2018
But Eric did his good deed for the day and it will go some way to help his image with the American public. Maybe even rub off on his father’s image.
