Trump Jr. appeared on the morning program Wednesday after his father delivered his second State of the Union address the previous night.

After the interview ended, Kilmeade turned to his co-hosts to praise the eldest of Trump’s children.


“Clearly he’d have a great political future should he ever run,” he said.

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt questioned why he would want to run for a political office.

“Is it worth it?” she asked.

The president’s son has hinted at a career in politics in the past, reportedly telling members of an elite gun club in 2017 that he was contemplating a run for New York governor. 

He reportedly said returning to business became “boring” after joining his father on the presidential campaign trail.

"The politics bug bit me,” he said at the time, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

The businessman ended up not running in the November 2018 election but told The Associated Press that the decision was something he'd consider “maybe someday.”

"It's not something I'm doing now. But you never know, it's fascinating stuff,” Trump Jr. said.
