Eric Trump said if he and brother Donald Trump Jnr deliberately "lied about guns like Hunter Biden" they would be "jailed for life."
Donald Trump's second eldest son told Fox News that there is "no question" president Biden's eldest son Hunter "is obviously a troubled kid" amid allegations of him lying on a federal form about owning a discarded gun.
“Obviously, Hunter is a troubled kid, right? There’s no question about that," he told Maria Bartiromo.
"But if that was Don or I, or if that was anybody in the Trump family, and we lied on a federal form, we’d be in jail for the rest of our lives.We really would be."
“And it’s amazing. There’s no one even, there’s no one even talking about that. He lied on multiple questions. It wasn’t just the drug question. He lied on multiple questions,” he said.
He added how "a lot of people in this country are sick and tired of the unequal scales of justice".
Trump's third eldest child also took aim Hunter's alleged business dealings with Ukraine and China.
Hunter Biden reportedly claimed his then-girlfriend threw his gun in the trash in 2018 because she was “scared he’d harm himself” due to a drug and alcohol problem, according to reports.
The president’s son also allegedly claimed that the FBI and Secret Service became involved in the incident after Delaware police launched an investigation when the firearm then went missing from the trashcan.
The bizarre incident allegedly unfolded on October 23, 2018, when Hallie Biden – who was married to Hunter’s late brother Beau Biden – threw the firearm in the trash behind a grocery store and returned later to find it was gone.
A Firearms Transaction Record and a receipt for the gun dated October 12, 2018 were obtained by the publication.
When asked: “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” Hunter said "no."
Biden's son was discharged from the Navy for using cocaine five years earlier and his family have spoken out about his substance abuse battle.
It was first reported by Politico on Thursday, who also claimed that the Secret Service intervened when Hallie called the cops to report the missing gun and an investigation was launched.
According to alleged texts from Hunter to his therapist published by DailyMail.com on Friday, Hallie had thrown the gun away because she was “afraid for the kids.”
“Did I tell you what she did with my 38,” Hunter wrote in the alleged December 2018 text message, reportedly found on his abandoned laptop.
During today's interview, Eric Trump said he and his brother are both gun enthusiasts – describing himself and Don Jnr as "shooters and "advocates of the Second Amendment."
"You have to sign a form called – it’s called a 4473. The first question is, are you actually the legal buyer of this firearm? And you check yes, right?,” he continued.
“But the second question is, have you ever been dishonorably discharged from the military? He obviously lied about that point."
"Then the third question is, are you under the us of an"y illegal banned substances, including X, Y and Z? They list a lot of drugs. He lied on that question,” he added.
The Secret Service and Joe Biden said they have no knowledge of agents investigating it.
But the NY Post claims it found emails found on a hard drive they obtained from the contents of a laptop Hunter allegedly left at a computer repair shop in Wilmington, in April 2019 contradicts their claims.
Hunter wrote in the email datinhg back to 2018: “She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens [sic]. Then told me it was my problem to deal with.”
“Then when the police the FBI the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids.”
