Could Donald Trump Jr Run For Senate? 

( National security blog described young Donald Trump Jr. as direct, persistent, and unafraid to state his opinions.  The report wonders if we could expect his run for office. 

Don Jr. was a regular sight on both of his father’s presidential campaigns, either as the main attraction at events or as a spokesman for his dad at donor events. He never failed to wow the Republican crowds he addressed with his impromptu remarks. 

Their speeches were raw, gory, and full of red meat for the Republicans’ jaded base, who wanted to hear more about how terrible their Democratic Party opponents were and how President Trump would punish them for their wrongdoings. The essence of Don Jr.’s appeal to the Right was his seamless combination of grievance, righteous outrage, and hardline conservative talking points. 

According to a report, Trump Jr. recently remarked at CPAC about Pennsylvania electing a “vegetable” while referring to Democrat Senator John Fetterman.  

Trump Jr. said he’d been accused of “ableism”  for that remark. He didn’t know what that meant, but he knew there was always an ‘ism’ for every situation. 

According to 19fortyfive, Don Jr. was the man for the job when the Trump campaign wanted a Donald Trump lookalike or a crowd whipped into a frenzy before the elder Trump made a public appearance. 

Rumors were revealed that Don Jr. planned to run against then-Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). Cheney belonged to the Republican Party’s “Never Trump” faction and was an outspoken opponent of Trump. As she openly criticized President Trump, she saw her support in Wyoming decline.  

As the January 6 riot began and protesters stormed Capitol Hill, they disrupted the certification process for the election in 2020.  The January 6 Committee and Cheney spearheaded the drive to investigate Trump. It was an insult that Don Jr. could not forgive. 

According to the report, it’s unclear whether voters would find Don Jr.’s brand of partisan politics appealing in a general election. Yet he has a good chance of winning the GOP nomination in a Red State like Wyoming or Montana, where he may run for Congress.
