Eric Trump, the son of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, said the FBI's refusal to recommend criminal charges for Hillary Clinton puts America on the same level of corruption as less-developed, corrupt countries.

"It's almost like our government has become third-world. This is not how the United States should act," Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity Tuesday night.

"It really is a pay-to-play system in government. It's you protect me and I protect you. We'll all go on to the next administration," Trump added.

The billionaire businessman's son said FBI Director James Comey's announcement earlier Tuesday confirms suspicions Americans have about government officials' lack of interest in putting the people above their own personal interests.

Hannity asked Trump if he was happy Clinton would continue in the presidential race now as damaged goods for how it could help the real estate mogul's chances of winning in November. But Trump took the higher ground.

"Honestly, it's selfish thinking," Trump said, adding that justice was more important than his father's success in the race.
