There have been a lot of rumors floating around about what former President Donald Trump might be doing now that his time in the White House is over, but the one that seems to have gathered quite a bit of steam is one that states the former commander-in-chief is considering running for either the Senate or for Speaker of the House.
However, Donald Trump Jr. recently conducted an interview with Newsmax host John Bachman where he said, “I don’t think that’s a real plan. I’ve seen a lot of those theories coming around there. I think you know they’re great, and I love that. There’s that enthusiasm and again. I think that enthusiasm will continue to build.”
But beyond throwing out a “hey, this could be a way to do it,” Trump Jr. said he knows his father could meet the challenge, “unless there’s a couple of other people in the conservative movement that really step up who can really do what Donald Trump can do … you know, I’d like to see him do it myself.”
But still, the movement needs a “deeper bench” of people beyond the former president and a few other voices, Trump Jr. said.
“We’ve got to work on that,” he went on to say. “We’ve got to get rid of the RINOs. We’ve got to get rid of the establishment clowns that are never going to actually fight. They’ll tell you what you want to hear. But never actually do anything about it. We need to put real fighters in positions of power, and that’s how we’re going to make this change permanent and not temporary.”
Trump Jr. also told Bachman that even after his dad left the White House, he’s been happy to keep going in politics, despite the fact his family wasn’t originally interested in the political realm.
“I’m happy to do it because I’ve got five young kids and I want them to grow up in a country that I recognize,” he went on to say. “I want them to grow up in America, not, you know, some sort of socialist, Marxist, fake utopia that becomes a disaster like it has everywhere else that it’s been tried.”
He also stated that despite the “shock to the system,” it’s been worth it all to defend his dad against the radical left multitudes who have had it out for him since day one.
“Honestly, America and our freedoms are worth fighting for, so I’m going to stay in the game,” Trump Jr. stated. “I can do (it) if I do it well if I’m able to have a good soapbox to get this stuff out there to at least counter a small portion of the very uphill, you know, fight that we are in, I’ve got to do it. I don’t have a choice.”
“I think there’s probably no one in 2020 that did more sort of in person, you know events for politics or probably anything else,” he went on to state. “I mean, I did 104 rallies in the month of October. So you know, I’ll be out there. I’m going to continue doing that. I’m obviously pretty big. I do a lot of the video content on Facebook and Rumble and Telegram and those sort of things just trying to get to all of the audiences that we possibly can…I will definitely be on the road because again, it’s worth it and someone has to do it.”
However, Don Jr. did make it clear that as of now, he’s had no involvement in a potential social network built and established by his dad, though he does post a lot of his content up on Ramble so his followers have access to them.
