"Well, I never like to rule anything out," Trump Jr. said on CNN's "State of the Union." 

"As my father says, 'We always like to keep our options open.' So if I can do that as a service to our country, I'd love to do it." 

He made similar comments last week at the Republican National Convention, where his father, Donald Trump, officially accepted the party's nomination for president. 

"Maybe when the kids get out of school I would consider it," Trump Jr. said last Wednesday at The Wall Street Journal's breakfast at the convention. 

He added that he'd "love to be able to do it, as a patriot."
