President Donald Trump’s oldest son said this week that he wouldn’t rule out running for public office himself one day, noting that his father successfully entered politics at a late age during an interview with Bloomberg Radio.
“As for the future,” Trump Jr. told Bloomberg Radio’s “Sound On” on Wednesday. “I never want to rule it out. I definitely enjoy the fight. I definitely like being out there, and I love being able to see the impact and the difference that it makes on these people’s lives that I get to see all over the country.”
He added, “My father decided to get into politics at 68. I’m 41, I’ve got plenty of time.”
Trump Jr. also addressed the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller’s team had questioned Trump Jr. about a meeting he held with other Trump campaign officials and Russian lawyer Natalia Vishnevskaya at Trump Tower in 2016. Mueller ultimately did not find evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia.
“Obviously, we were happy and there’s some relief there,” Trump Jr. said.
“So I knew we didn’t do anything wrong,” he continued. “But just because something is nonsense doesn’t mean you don’t still have to deal with nonsense and you don’t have to deal with half of the country and leading congressional candidates and people for president saying you’re being treasonous and all of this nonsense.”
