During an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN Wednesday night, Bob Woodward responded to Eric Trump's remarks saying he wrote the book to make "shekels".

"Don't you think people look through the fact that you can write a sensational, nonsense book, CNN will definitely have you on there because they love to trash the president", Eric Trump told said.

He then added: "It will mean you sell three extra books, you make three extra shekels".

For those of you unaware, a "shekel" is the monetary currency in Israel and it's also used by right-wing anti-semites and white supremacists, especially online, as a sarcastic and derogatory term for money, with a negative connotation that Jewish people are greedy and control the market.

Eric joined the Trump Family Good Time Happy Hour to attack Daddy's enemies: anyone who's a Democrat and journalist Bob Woodward.

Woodward later called Eric Trump's comments unfortunate. "It sets us back".

"I just hope no one would talk like that, frankly", Woodward said.
