In case you haven’t been following the movement of Donald Trump Jr. lately, he has been traveling rampantly throughout the country, participating in fundraisers and other events for Republican candidates. He’s even been making regular appearances on “Fox & Friends” to plug his upcoming book, “Triggered.”
Well, according to Republican strategist Rick Wilson, Trump Jr. has been doing all of this because, as his book suggests, he is considering running for the GOP nomination in 2014.
“He is fluent in the language of whining, dickish grievance-mongering, which has replaced modern conservatism,” Wilson claims. “Whether the GOP wannabe 2024 field knows it or not, it’s DJTJ’s opening shot for the 2024 nomination.”
“For GOP candidates who think they’re going to finesse this one somehow, or blow up Trump Jr. in 2024, may I remind you of the hell of 2016?” Wilson added. “This time, the cult you fear so much will listen to its leader and support the dynasty. Trump’s royal fantasies won’t wait, and no matter how much any other GOP candidate has polished Donald Trump’s knob in the past years, he’ll throw them under the bus for his spawn.”
Also, according to Wilson, Trump Jr.’s chances at winning the 2024 nomination could actually increase if his father loses his re-election bid next year.
“Every single one of these candidates will spend the year before the election posturing and posing as the sole heir to Donald Trump’s legacy,” Wilson wrote.
“Making the pivot to the general election won’t just be difficult; it will be laughable,” he added.
“Imagine trying to make the jump from ‘I would let Donald Trump dry hump my wife in broad daylight if he would tweet something nice about me’ to the era of ‘Trump has passed and I will lead a Republican party as it seeks to bring all Americans together as one to face the great national challenges ahead of us,’” Wilson concluded.
