Donald Trump Jr. said it would be a “step down” for his father to become president.

Speaking with Fox News after the last presidential debate on Wednesday, Trump Jr. defended Republican nominee Donald Trump’s performance against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“He’s learning as he goes, because he’s a real American,” Trump Jr. said.

“Unlike Hillary Clinton ― who’s gotten very rich being a politician, peddling American influence ― he hasn’t,” he continued. “This isn’t only a step down, but he wants to make sure that all Americans, all ethnicities and backgrounds, have the same opportunities to do what he’s been able to do, to start a great family, start a great business.”

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
