After a slew of celebrities vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump is elected President, one of the Republican frontrunner’s sons offered to pay for their plane tickets.

“I’ll buy their airfare! I’m more than happy to chip in,” Donald Trump Jr. said Monday during an interview on “Fox and Friends.”

Eric Trump chimed in to say those remarks – from the likes of reverend Al Sharpton, Jon Stewart, and Cher – are the “greatest endorsement ever” for their father’s presidential campaign.

Trump Jr. also no matter how much the Republican “establishment” attacks the real estate mogul, his message still resonates with voters.

“That’s the thing, when you have the establishment candidates in the debate and they stack the debates with 1,000 people that are all establishment and they’re booing, those are votes for us, because the people in the audience watching at home, they’re like ‘wait a minute, he’s saying what I’m thinking,’” he said.
