Report: Donald Trump Jr. Hints at Possible Run for New York Governor

The Associated Press

Donald Trump Jr. hinted at a possible gubernatorial bid in New York during a speech he gave to members of an elite gun club.

Trump Jr. made the comment during a speech to members of the F6 Labs gun club in Hicksville, New York, the New York Post’s Page Six reported.

“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,” one of the meeting’s attendees told Page Six.

Trump Jr. reportedly said he was bored with his return to business after joining his father on the campaign trail for president.

“The politics bug bit me,” he said.

Trump Jr. did not give a timeline of when he would run for governor of New York. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), who has vocally criticized the president on a number of his policies, is up for re-election in 2018.

Trump Jr. reportedly said he is not considering a congressional run in either the House or Senate.

A source told Page Six that Trump Jr. “has no intentions of running for political office at this time” and is “totally focused on running the Trump Organization with his brother.”
