REPORT: Junior Pondering Bid For Leadership Of NRA

Business Insider reports:

Among the three oldest Trump children, Trump Jr. has been talked about the most for a possible career in politics. The chatter has involved running for Senate or perhaps even president in 2024 should his father opt not to try again.

“I never want to rule it out,” Trump Jr.told Bloomberg Radio in March 2019. “I’m 41. I’ve got plenty of time.” More recently, Trump advisors have been buzzing about the possibility of Trump Jr. taking on Wayne LaPierre for control of the NRA, according to two Republicans close to the president.

“They’re looking for a franchise for Trump Jr,” one of the GOP sources said of Trump Jr., who is an avid hunter and has done high-profile events for the NRA during the last four years.

According to the above-linked report, Junior would have to overcome LaPierre loyalists on the NRA’s board of directors. The piece also speculates that Junior’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, is angling for a hosting gig with Newsmax.
