Will Trump Jr run for president in 2024? He is 'MAGA universe's emotional center' and great candidate: Strategist
Trump Jr may follow in his father's footsteps as many, including political strategists, believe that he will win the Republican nomination
After being acquitted in 2021 during his second impeachment trial, Donald Trump is now eligible to run for the presidency in 2024. However, at the moment, it is unclear if he is willing to run for office again.
Meanwhile, political strategists and followers believe that Donald Trump Jr has a good chance of becoming a candidate for the Oval Office as he will win the Republican nomination.
Rick Wilson, the political strategist in an op-ed for Daily Beast, wrote, "There are three 2024 scenarios that Republicans pretend they won't face, but that represents the further decline and fall of a once-great party of conservative ideas."
He explained, "First, the clues have been there all along that the real 2024 primary will be between Donald J Trump Jr and everyone else," and added, "It's becoming more obvious by the day."
Wilson also noted that Trump Jr has been "on the road doing fundraisers and political events for the Republican candidates." He explains that this is also an indication that Trump Jr is indeed interested in running in 2024. Trump Jr's book 'Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us' is scheduled to release very soon and all of this is expected to add to Trump Jr's experience before he gets on the campaigning bandwagon.
Wilson also wrote, "He is fluent in the language of whining, dickish grievance-mongering, which has replaced modern conservatism," and added, "Whether the GOP wannabe 2024 field knows it or not, it's DJTJ's opening shot for the 2024 nomination."
Trump Jr has also commented on the chances of running for the office in the future in a Bloomberg interview, saying he wouldn't "rule out" running for office in the future. He said, "I definitely enjoy the fight," and added, "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."
Currently, Trump Jr is the executive vice president of the Trump Organization. During the 2020 election campaign, Trump Jr would appear sometimes even an hour before his father appeared to talk to the crowd that appeared to support his father.
Since 2016, there has been talk about how Trump Jr is a great candidate for 2024. In fact, speaking of this, strategist Jason Miller said, "Don Jr represents the emotional center of the MAGA universe,” After having played a central role in his father's campaign in 2020, Trump Jr is also expected to be the ideal candidate because of his grasp on messaging.
A report in the New York Times, for instance, even cited the incident of how Trump Jr uses Speaker Nancy Pelosi's meme moment of ripping up Trump's speech to spread a message that centered on how her hate cannot beat the stories of American hopes and dreams that his father had brought to fore.
