Donald Trump Jr. says he’ll be ‘very involved’ on 2022 campaign trail
GOP power players kick off CPAC in Dallas, Texas
DALLAS — Donald Trump Jr. says he will be “everywhere” in the 2022 midterm elections, as Republicans aim to win back the majority in the House and Senate.
“I’m going to be very involved,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News on Friday, minutes before his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas.
The eldest son of former President Trump, who enjoys a strong following among many fervent Trump supporters, was very active on the campaign trail last year during his father’s unsuccessful run for re-election.
And Trump Jr. pledged that “you’ll see me everywhere” in the 2022 cycle.
“I look at what’s going on and someone has to push back,” he argued as he pointed to the policies being pushed by President Biden and congressional Democrats.
“There’s not many people that have sort of the privilege of having a big platform,” Trump Jr., who has 6.8 million followers on Twitter, said. “There’s not many people who have a big platform that are actually willing to use it . . . It’s a battle that we have to have. I’m happy to do it.”
The former president for months has repeatedly flirted with a potential 2024 president run, to try and win back the White House. Some political pundits see Trump Jr. as a potential contender for the next GOP presidential nomination if his father doesn’t run.
“I haven’t personally thought about it,” Trump Jr. answered when asked by Fox News if he’s mulled a 2024 run if his father doesn’t launch a campaign.
“There’s some people talking about it in terms of polls,” he said. “I’ve seen a bunch that has me high up on the list if not at the top of it. Who knows. The reality with that job is you also have to want to do the day job. It’s not just about the campaigning. I love being in that fight. I love fighting for the things that are out there that I believe in as a conservative. I will do that irrespective.”
