Donald Trump Jr. won’t rule out running for office

Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday that he is not ruling out a possible run for office. 

The president’s eldest son said on Bloomberg Radio’s “Sound On” that he had “plenty of time,” given his father’s late start to the political arena.

“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,” Trump Jr. said.

He did not specify which office for which he would consider a possible run. 

Trump Jr. also said he was relieved about the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller concluded in his report that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“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,” he added. 

Trump Jr. and his father have repeatedly denounced Mueller’s nearly two-year-long investigation, labeling it a “witch hunt,” and seeking to cast the sweeping probe as a partisan attempt to undercut President Trump’s administration.
