Donald Trump’s former senior adviser Steve Bannon was arrested on Thursday over his connection to the “We Build the Wall” crowdfunding campaign that allegedly misappropriated the funds they raised. Shortly after the arrest was made public, Donald Trump Jr. tried to distance himself from the campaign, despite enthusiastically endorsing the “We Build the Wall” campaign in 2019.

“This is what capitalism is all about. This is private enterprise at its finest. Doing it better, faster, cheaper than anything else. What you guys are doing is amazing,” Trump Jr. said at the time.

White House correspondent Maggie Haberman shared a statement by Trump Organization spokeswoman Amanda Miller, who was speaking on Trump Jr.’s behalf.

Trump Jr.’s attempt to distance himself from Bannon backfired after critics on Twitter couldn’t resist bringing up his past praise of the group.
