CLEVELAND – Get ready for the Trump dynasty.
Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of Donald Trump and a top campaign surrogate, is focusing on his career now — but he may run for elected office in the future.
“Maybe when the kids get out of school, I would consider it,” said Trump Jr., at a breakfast on Wednesday sponsored by the Wall Street Journal.
Some enthusiastic fans are urging him not to wait.
“How about Donald Trump, Jr. running for Mayor of New York City? I believe he can coalesce support & get De Blasio out of there,” tweeted Gene White, managing partner at Dewey Stone Group LLC.
Donald Trump Jr:
I’d ‘love’ to run for New York mayor against De Blasio
Donald Trump’s son says he wants to keep options open and would be interested in running if he could do so ‘as service to my country’
Donald Trump Jr said on Sunday he would “love” to run for mayor of New York City against the Democratic incumbent, Bill de Blasio, “if I could do that as a service to my country”.
Trump Jr was appearing on CNN’s State of the Union as a surrogate for his father, the Republican nominee for president.
“I never like to rule anything out,” he said, in response to a question about whether he would run against De Blasio, a leading progressive voice and ally of Hillary Clinton, whom he served as campaign manager when she was elected to the US Senate in New York in 2000.
“We always like to keep our options open, so if I could do that as a service to my country, I would love to do that.”
