Eric Trump has defended Donald Trump Jr and claimed he is being attacked for supporting their father, while Nigel Farage has also rallied to his defence.

Former UKIP leader Farage had tweeted that Donald Trump Jr "is the best public supporter of [the President] in the business. No surprise he is under attack!"

Eric Trump responded to the tweet by saying: "This is the EXACT reason they viciously attack our family! They can't stand that we are extremely close and will ALWAYS support each other.”

Farage has also said that he predicts in a week's time the story about Trump and the Russians will have died, The Hill reported.

Trump Jr has now released emails which show his correspondence with Rob Goldstone, which led to a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

During the conversation Goldstone claims his contacts have information which would be damaging to Hillary Clinton.

In the email Goldstone said: “This is obviously very high-level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr Trump,”

However, Trump Jr has said the meeting gave him no information about Clinton and instead the lawyer wanted to discuss Russian-American adoption policy. He also claimed that he was simply doing standard "Opposition research" rather than anything sinister.

Yesterday (July 11), Donald Trump praised Trump Jr and said he “is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency.”
