No, Donald Trump Jr. is not Running for President

Timothy Birdnow

Does anyone really believe this?


Republican political strategist Rick Wilson predicted that Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, will run for office in 2024 and is likely to secure the GOP nomination in a Daily Beast op-ed published Thursday.

"There are three 2024 scenarios that Republicans pretend they won't face, but that represent the further decline and fall of a once-great party of conservative ideas," Wilson wrote. "First, the clues have been there all along that the real 2024 primary will be between Donald J. Trump, Jr. and everyone else."

"It's becoming more obvious by the day," he said.

[...]

He then suggested that Trump Jr. may have an even greater chance of the GOP 2024 nomination if his father loses his 2020 reelection bid. "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," he added.

Please note that Mr. Wilson wrote this for the left wing Daily Beast.

First off, Donald Jr. is not the man his father is and while he may well have a future in politics he will NOT be ready by 2024. Second, even if he were America isn't likely to support him. We don't go in for dynasties in this country. I can think of only two in history; the Adams dynasty and the Bushes.

Hillary tried to do it and failed.

That is not the point here; this is intended to buck up the liberals and depress conservatives. There is no reason why it would appear first at The Daily Beast then Newsweek. This is intended to serve a purpose.

What is that? First it lights a fire under the Democrats, forcing them to focus out of fear that Trump will somehow make himself into another Kim family (as in the North Korean Kims) , or at least into an American version of Francisco Franco. See, the Left, at least the cannon fodder liberals, really do believe Trump is a fascist dictator and the threat of his son being nominated in his stead is so terrifying that they will swallow their pride and unite  behind someone they do not like just to avoid a Trump dynasty.

Second, it acts to sever the luke-warm Republicans, who also share a disdain for dynasties, and especially for one established by so uncouth and plebeian a fellow as Donald J. Trump. We could have polished sophisticates like the Bushes, but not a fecal tossing orangutan like Trump creating a dynasty.

Is that the legacy of the GOP, they will be asking themselves.

The prospect of a Trump dynasty will frighten both sides of the aisle, the angry Democrats and the pusillanimous Republicans.

By the way, Rick Wilson is a #Nevertrump guy who has railed against the President from the get go. Mr. Wilson has written such memorable tomes as "Everything Trump Touches Dies" and his latest "Running Against the Devil". At this point one can hardly call this guy a Republican anything. 

He is believed to be the guy who gave the Steele Dossier to the CIA.

At his website he states:

Rick enjoys hunting, fishing, flying, and overthrowing governments.

He clearly thinks he's funny. But I think that speaks volumes about the man's heart. And who is he trying to overthrow now?

1 So: a NeverTrumper somehow rises to the level of "Republican political strategist." Well, those of us at The Aviary could probably be called pundits, then. Why don't we start the rumor that if Joe Biden's numbers fall too far and there's no clear moderate front-runner, the donkeys will decide to run Hunter Biden instead? You could write an article, Tim, and say that "anonymous sources" indicated it to you in a midnight telephone call. Yeah, that ought to do it.
