ERIC Trump during a speech on the second night of the Republican National Convention slammed "radical Democrats" for trying to "destroy" US history and the American dream.

He also warned that a Joe Biden presidency would be a "giant relief for the terrorists," and that the Democratic nominee is "a total pushover for Communist China."
Many of the speeches given so far during this week's RNC have focused on Trump's image as a law-and-order president, in contrast to Democrats who want to "destroy" order, and the president's son stuck to that theme.
"In view of the radical Democrats, America is the source of the world's problems," Trump said.
"As a result, they believe the only path forward is to erase history and forget the past. They want to destroy the monuments of our forefathers"
"They want to disrespect our flag – burn the stars and stripes that represent patriotism and the American dream."
Trump continued down a list of other aspects of American culture he believes the Democrats want to destroy, including the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, law enforcement and the freedom of speech.
"President Reagan said, 'Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction … It must be fought for and protected,' This is the fight that we are in right now – and it is a fight that only my father can win."
Tuesday's RNC events also featured speeches from the president's wife Melania Trump, one of his daughters Tiffany Trump and his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
