The Republican National Convention: 7 things you may not know about Eric Trump

The parade of Trump children speaking at the Republican National Convention continues Wednesday night as Eric, Donald Trump’s second son, takes the stage.

Considering the controversy this week over the speeches delivered by his step-mother, Melania, and brother, Donald Jr., Eric promises his speech will be his own, and said he had “zero” help from any speechwriter.

“I wrote every single word of my speech myself,” he told “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.

1. Eric is the third child of Ivana and Donald Trump, he’s 32, six years younger than his brother, Donald Jr.

2. He and his siblings spent their summers not in the Hamptons, but rather in Zlin, Czechoslovakia, with their grandparents.
