Does not have a formal role in the White House and has mostly acted as an outside surrogate, juicing up the president ’s fans on social media and savaging his enemies. In the past he has floated the idea of running for mayor of New York City, though his father has poured cold water on the possibility.
“He couldn’t win as a Republican, he wouldn’t have a chance,” the president told Fox Business last month. It would allow the family to harness the popularity of Trump ’s name among his hard-core base while simultaneously refreshing the MAGA brand.
Donald Trump has five children ; Donald Jr., 42, Eric, 36, as well as daughter Ivanka, 39, who already serves as a White House adviser. His other two children are too young to run for office; daughter Tiffany, 27 and teenage son Barron, 14.
She’s spent the past five years as an advisor to her father, and the four years in office as ‘ Senior Advisor to the President ’, which according to her profile entails focusing “on the education and economic empowerment of women and their families as well as job creation and economic growth through workforce development, skills training and entrepreneurship”. Washington Post journalist Sarah Ellison reported that Ivanka is Donald Trump ’s favorite of his five children and shares similar traits to her father.
Neither Donald Junior nor Ivanka should consider running for office, voter said in a new poll by The Independent. Republican political strategist Rick Wilson predicted that Donald Trump., 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.
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, sickish grievance-mongering, which has replaced modern conservatism,” Wilson said.
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 DonaldTrump's legacy,” he added.

Headlined a rally in support of Kentucky Governor Matt Begin's re-election bid with his partner Kimberly Guilfoyle at Pineville's Appalachian Wireless Arena.

Made his first political, public appearance at the Republican National Convention in 2016, as he marched across the stage, waving and flashing subtle smiles at the bustling crowd. Once he reached the podium, he greeted the camera and the attendees with a stern, yet powerful look, smirking at the hoots of excitement.
Trump Jr.’s 2016 remarkable convention speech marked the beginning of what could be a bright career in politics. He praised his father’s accomplishments as a businessman and embraced the future president ’s public speaking strategies, leading the crowd through contentious topics and Trump !” chants.
Four years later, President Donald Trump ’s eldest son delivered a forceful speech on the opening night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, applauding his father’s leadership to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. Spun Trump's presidency to be a success and said a Democratic White House would create complete chaos and violence across the country.
Has earned a strong reputation, morphing to be one of the most admired political weapons the president has on his team. Represents the emotional center of the MAGA universe,” Jason Miller, a senior adviser on Trump ’s re-election campaign, told The New York Times.
But, so much of Trump Jr.’s beliefs and ideas are associated with his father’s, as he continues to follow Trump ’s political path, rather than shape his own. Even though polls have voted in favor of his candidacy and followers think he has a strong chance of running for presidency one day, Trump Jr.

“I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if he decides to run again,” Republican strategist Mike Kennedy said. Trump ’s eldest son called out 2024 GOP hopefuls” on Twitter Thursday for their “total lack of action” on the president ’s behalf as the 2020 race went down to the wire.
Rumored presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and Nikki Haley, a former South Carolina governor and United Nations ambassador under Trump, swiftly rushed to the president ’s defense. Even if the president steps away from the political stage, Trump is highly unlikely to leave the spotlight.
“He will probably buy or start a television network with a robust web and social media platform attached to it, might even buy a couple of newspapers, I think he continues the rally tour,” GOP strategist Patrick Griffin said. The incumbent US leader’s eldest son posted an Instagram story showing another user mentioning his name in answer to a question about potential Republican candidates in five years’ time.
Introduced to the national stage during Jeff Sessions’ testimony, she has endorsed Medicare-for-all and proposed a major tax-credit for the middle class. He favors gun regulations and was a signatory to a letter from some 400 mayors condemning PresidentTrump's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord.

Tulsa Gab bard The Hawaii congresswoman announced her candidacy in January, but is likely to face tough questions on her past comments on LGBT+ rights and her stance on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Biden will have the opportunity to guide this country out of COVID-19, and we’ll see what his successes and failures are,” Lanka pointed out. An Oct. 30 Washington Examiner/YouGov poll of 1,200 registered voters found that 48 percent would prefer Trump “leave politics entirely,” the most popular answer.
“If Donald Trump wins, we’ll continue to see a lot more of, maybe even more so of, what the Republican Party feels they are now. If it happens to be former Vice President Biden winning the White House, then I think we’re going to see the Republican Party, sort of, retract and look to see what they need to be moving forward,” Jason Monica, professor at American University and part of the Fox News Radio launching team, said.
If Trump doesn’t win a new term, Monica and other experts agreed that the party will have to come up with someone who not only embraces Trump ’s modern political ideals like abortion revisions and reforming the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), but also represents the traditional Republican policies including free trade and gun rights. If he wins or loses by a tight margin, then the candidate will have to do “damage control,” Monica said, by re-establishing and adjusting leading ideals that will make the party more cohesive.

Haley was the former governor of South Carolina and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under the Trump Administration. She is pro-life and had once called members of the pro-choice movement “anti-feminist.” Trump is generally pro-life, but with some exceptions in the cases of rape and incest.
Like Pence, Haley can bring in support of pro-life Republicans who don’t believe in the exceptions that Trump has advocated for.
