Donald Trump’s son, Eric, made five stops around metro Detroit on Friday.

His tour took him to Saginaw, Pontiac, Walled Lake, Taylor and Detroit.

While in Pontiac, he stopped at the Grace Centers of Hope Women and Children’s Home.

"You look at what government does, government isn't doing much right these days and that's the only reason my father is running for commander in chief,” Eric Trump said the crowd gathered outside the building.

The Grace Centers of Hope is a nonprofit, faith based organization that operates without government funding.

"The problem is Washington never seems to get out of their own way and that's why it's beautiful when you see a place like this that is so effective at what you do, so effective and you don't have to rely on our federal government,” said Trump.

People at the meeting in Pontiac said his message really speaks to them.

"I'm a mom and Eric Trump makes me really proud, all of Trump's kids make me really proud an the message that he gives and his father gives gives hope to not only facilities like our Grace Centers of Hope, but I think the majority of our people,” said Marilyn Macadaeg of Waterford.
 
"Religious freedom is a big issue for me in this election and Hillary Clinton is going to take that away, so I'm voting against Hillary,” said Dale Murrish of Troy.

Along with his stop in Pontiac, Eric Trump also met a gun store in Taylor to discuss 2nd Amendment rights and a small business in Detroit to hear about their challenges.
