Eric Trump, President Donald Trump’s son, expressed outrage Tuesday at the toll border wall negotiations are taking on his father.

“The problem is Washington is so incompetent,” Trump told the Fox and Friends hosts. “He never left, he hasn’t left the White House in five weeks!”

Trump spent part of last weekend at his beach club in Mar-a-Lago.

“Let’s have a great legal system,” Eric Trump also said. “Our legal system of immigration is broken too. No one ever wants to talk about it. Why don’t we have an incredible legal system? Why don’t we stop the illegal immigration?”

Trump’s indignation comes on the heels of an embarrassing Axios report for his father, which details the President’s wide swaths of “executive time” that he usually fills with cable television.
