When Jeb Bush was the Governor of Florida at the same time that his brother, George W. Bush was President of the U.S, many people wondered if America was becoming a kingdom. While such fears with the Bush family can be understood, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and his father, former Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), both served at one time, and no harm was caused at all. If the family in question is honest, while it may be suspicious, it is not always a catalyst for tyranny as some fear. That is the point that Donald Trump Jr. will likely drive home if he seeks the Governors Mansion in New York.
While addressing members at the F6 Labs gun club in Hicksville, NY, the Junior Trump is reported to have said he is interested in the idea. A source said, “Don Jr. said he is interested in running for office, such as governor of New York, but the position of mayor of New York would be less interesting to him.” For Hillary Clinton, a person said to have designs on the Mayor’s desk of the Big Apple herself, this is likely something that is quite calming. It would be quite an accomplishment to be bested by two different Trump’s, after all. Nonetheless, it can not be gathered that Clinton would like being in charge of the biggest state in the union only to have Trump as her “boss” to some degree on a state level. Sometimes, reality is just so much more entertaining than any fiction that could be written.
Donald Trump Jr. is also not said to be interested in being “one of 100 Senators, nor a member of Congress,” according to the same source. It was as he took the stand proudly beside his father on the campaign trail that he asked himself, “Do I want to be behind the scenes and be a mouthpiece and fight back against crazy liberal media?” He then jokingly said, “ Maybe,” before adding in seriousness that “Going back to doing deals is boring after 18 months. The politics bug bit me.” This ties in with more bad news for Democrats as Chelsea Clinton has said that she is not going to run against Donald Trump Sr. in 2020. This she said only days ago. That means that every big name in the Democrat hat is proving to be of no use.
It is Trump Jr. and his brother Eric who have taken over the Trump empire since their father was elected to serve. If he should really run and win the seat in New York, then Eric could rapidly find himself a very busy man. The younger Trump has not said that he would run, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo is up for re-election in 2018. Cuomo is said to be a likely choice for a presidential bid in 2020, so it could be that the stars are taking just the needed alignment for him should he attempt such a run. New York City is rabidly liberal, but as a state, Trump would have a better than average shot at claiming the prize. This could be all the more true should Trump as President prove to be half as successful as it seems like he is going to be.
If President Trump gets the economy running (or at least not limping), manages to soothe the war-ready Putin, and secures the border, he will be riding a wave that will not only be a doorway for Trump Jr, but also a time when Democrat seats will be lost in 2018. Presidents often see their popularity either sour or soar two years into office, and the White House seems dedicated to the idea of flying quite high. Still, before anyone starts praising our cursing the idea, the official word from the family is that this is not to happen. “Don [Jr.] has no intentions of running for political office at this time . . . [He] is totally focused on running the Trump Organization with his brother,” said a statement.
Just the same, politicians do this all the time. Hillary Clinton did it before her failed run for the White House and she is doing it now with her Mayoral dreams in New York City. This could very easily be a Trump Jr. trial balloon just as easily as it could be something just thrown out there to cause a bit of questioning in the minds of Democrats who may run. Do they want to run against a Trump family member, or will they choose to wait until a better candidate comes along who will be less tiger-like? That is the game of politics, after all, so anything is possible. There is also nothing amiss about Trump Jr. flirting with the idea for future use. This is what America’s President did for years before he ran. Everyone remembers the Oprah interview, and that was not the only time that the billionaire real estate agent did so.
With all of the Clinton’s and Bush’s, America can be understood when the voters say that they may not savor the idea of a Trump heavy nation. Some of the things that the Bush dynasty did were so vile that Trump is still speaking about and uncovering them even today. When this doubt is seen, it should be noted, but not used as a measuring stick that blinds one from giving the man a chance, should he really choose to run. What does he believe, what are his goals for New York? Just like we don’t want someone voting for someone because their last name is “TRUMP,” we don’t want someone NOT voting for someone for the same reason.
Each man deserves to be judged on his merit, not the merit of others, even if those “others” are family members. That is the very thing that is being done to Judge Gorsuch on the left as they battle him to hurt the President. To stoop to that level of thinking is to be dull-minded, indeed. As for those who say, “can’t we choose someone who is not in the same family,” the answer is “YES!” There is still plenty of time for many people to enter. Just don’t be too surprised if President Trump is doing so well for America that New York wants his son to do the same there.
