Could the country withstand two Trumps in office at the same time?
Reportedly, Donald Trump Jr. thinks so, as he's rumored to be considering running for Governor of New York.
We've had multiple Bushes in office at the same time, but could we withstand that with Trumps as well?
It's hard to believe after the President's first few months in office haven't necessarily gone so well for him, and his approval ratings are at an all-time low, but something about this process has gotten to his son, Donald Trump Jr. He reportedly wants a piece of this too. It's not enough to have much of the family deeply embedded in the White House administration. It would seem as if he is looking for a larger piece of the pie.
Trump Jr. has reportedly told members of the F6 Labs gun club located in Hicksville, New York, that he "could set his sights on" making his own run for office. A guest at the meeting said the President's oldest son is considering running for governor of New York.
"The position of mayor of New York would be less interesting to him," said the guest.
He also doesn't have much interest in being one of many senators or one of even more members of the House. But there are only 50 governors, and he sees it as an easy way to advance to a more national post.
"The politics bug bit me," he said.
Trump Jr. and the rest of his eldest siblings spent months on the campaign trail for their dad, but now he and middle brother Eric are supposedly running the Trump Organization out of Trump Tower while both sister Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are helping out in the White House.
"Going back to doing deals is boring after 18 months," he told the gun club.
He's, however, taking part in the other family business, running his mouth on Twitter. After the hype of Rachel Maddow showing the President's tax return from 2005, Jr. tweeted about it after it showed to be less promising than originally thought. He thanked her for proving that his dad was rich and that he paid a proper amount of taxes.
He's also tweeted about the recent London terror attack, although got his facts wrong, and he's also posted stories that he believes back up his dad's claims about wiretapping.
It's not too far-fetched that he believes political office is his due after the past few months on the campaign trail with his father, as even Eric Trump said earlier this week that nepotism is a "factor of life."
