Skip to comments.D Trump Jr. Will Run For President In 2024 And He'll Likely Win GOP Nomination, GOP Strategist Says

Republican political strategist Rick Wilson predicted that Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, will run for office in 2024 and is likely to secure the GOP nomination in a Daily Beast op-ed published Thursday.
"There are three 2024 scenarios that Republicans pretend they won't face, but that represent the further decline and fall of a once-great party of conservative ideas," Wilson wrote. "First, the clues have been there all along that the real 2024 primary will be between Donald J. Trump, Jr. and everyone else."
"It's becoming more obvious by the day," he said.
Trump Jr. who's currently serving as a trustee and executive vice president for the Trump Organization has been "on the road doing fundraisers and political events for the Republican candidates," Wilson noted, as a signal that he's considering a future run for the White House.
The president's son is also a Fox & Friends favorite and his book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us, is coming out soon, the GOP strategist continued.
"He is fluent in the language of whining, dickish grievance-mongering, which has replaced modern conservatism," Wilson said. "Whether the GOP wannabe 2024 field knows it or not, it's DJTJ's opening shot for the 2024 nomination."
He then suggested that Trump Jr. may have an even greater chance of the GOP 2024 nomination if his father loses his 2020 reelection bid. "Every single one of these candidates will spend the year before the election posturing and posing as the sole heir to Donald Trump's legacy," he added.
Newsweek reached out to Donald Trump Jr. for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
Last Thursday, Trump Jr. headlined a rally in support of Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin's re-election bid with his partner Kimberly Guilfoyle at Pikeville's Appalachian Wireless Arena. According to WFPL, the event's organizers had to ask "the audience to move out of the seats and closer to the stage" because the rally was so "sparsely-attended." Roughly around 200 people were in attendance, WFPL reported.
In addition to running events to support the GOP, Trump Jr. also frequently tweets attacks at Democratic figures, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, freshman lawmaker Ilhan Omar and Senator Kamala Harris. In June, Trump Jr. shared a tweet from a right-wing personality who claimed that Harris was not black enough to represent African Americans.
"Kamala Harris is implying she is descended from American Black Slaves. She's not. She comes from Jamaican Slave Owners. That's fine. She's not an American Black. Period," Ali Alexander, a black MAGA personality who launched a website for other Trump supporters, tweeted. Trump Jr. quickly moved to share Alexander's sentiments, writing: "Is this true? Wow."
In March, Trump Jr. told Bloomberg he wouldn't "rule out" running for office in the future. "I definitely enjoy the fight," he said. "I definitely like being out there and I love being able to see the impact and the difference that it makes on these people's lives that I get to see all over the country."
I respect your opinion. I have just seen a lot of infiltration to stop the Trump agenda which is, I assume, what Don Jr. would carry on.
I don’t know who I will be voting for in 2024 but it certainly won’t be any candidate endorsed by Rick Wilson.
I'm in the "no dynasties" camp.
There has to be a governor, a military officer or even another business person out there to carry the MAGA torch. If there isn't, we are in a world of hurt.
No more Bushs, Clintons, Kennedys, etc...
Our country has 330 million people.
That’d guarantee a demonrat win.
Ivanka is a liberal.
I took notice of Don Jr. during the 2016 campaign. The guy is super-conservative.
I remember Don Jr. going all the way back to his “The Apprentice” appearances. He lacks the charm of his father and don’t think he has the instincts his father has. He exudes nepotism. If he can keep the White House out of Democrat hands, more power to him. I just don’t think he’ll have the overall crowd appeal of his dad.
Democrats will claim he’s the poster child of the “lucky sperm club”.
Pence should take himself out but make himself available if the voters are unable to settle on a successor. Brokered convention and a 60 day campaign. The country may need a breather after Trump and Pence may not represent it. We just may need to lighten up and laugh more while being serious about policy. Mike Huckabee seems good natured but I wouldn’t think he could win. The Kentucky Gov. seems more ideologically ‘pure’ and even a Rand Paul-talking freedom-would inspire. We’ll see.
Don Jr. is conservative.
I wouldn’t lump him in with those globalist scumbags the Clinton, Kennedys, or Bushes.
To repeat freeper Sybeck1: "Donny is the only way MAGA continues"
Only an intellectual idiot believes Lyin' Ryan's BFF, the ever so polite & accommodating Mike Pence, will continue MAGA.
America needs another war time President like DJT to continue our fight against the swamp's leftwing totalitarianism.
Does he? That was my only trepidation. I know his sister's been out there with the "Do Something" crowd. I fear the Second Amendment is on life support.
“The sad part is that the last lineup was very competent...”
You’re joking, right?
The sad fact really is that there were no other good options in the large number of candidates the GOPe chose to run. Nothing but Bushies, RINOs, GOPe retreads, warmongers, illegal alien azz kissers, and other globohomo Manchurian candidates. That’s the major reason that Trump won.
At this point, I’m not convinced the GOPe has learned a GD thing since Trump was elected. If Trump Jr ran, I’d vote for him.
Never Trumper Rick Wilson has his panties in a bunch AGAIN
Coat tails and inertia, otherwise no one knows the man.
I don’t know. Does he really want to do that?
I don’t get the sense that he does.
“Democrats will claim he’s the poster-child of the ‘lucky-sperm club’.”
Who cares what the RATS have to say?
They call Trump and his supporters Hitler, racists, terrorists, etc. every hour on the hour.
And what are the Kennedy’s? RFK’s kids and now grandkids have been yapping in the political arena for years.
I predicted that to my family after watching Don Jr. speak at some of the rally’s. Another tell is how Kimberly G. dumped Fox to jump on Jr’s train.
Pretty sure it’ll be Ivanka. Wouldn’t surprise me if Don Jr runs for senator though. Just my two cents.
To be joined by birthers.
"He's not eligible! Vattel! Vattel! Blah, blah, blah, whimper sob... Why won't President Trump speak up? Doesn't anybody care about us?"
