Donald Trump Jr. discussed on Monday his comfort with politics and his focus on speaking for the American people, even if that turns the D.C. elites against him.
“Politics allowed me to actually be who I was more so than the guy in a boardroom in New York City,” Trump told the Washington Examiner. “It’s the guy who I was on the weekends. I was acting, per se, when I put on a suit to be in a boardroom.”
Trump is a hotel and real estate executive, following in the Trump family footsteps. He is also one of the strongest advocates for his father and conservatism more broadly. At one point or an other, the eldest Trump son has been rumored to be gearing up for a potential gubernatorial or even presidential run.
“You know, I actually understand the base because I live with the base,” he told the Examiner. “These are my friends. These are my people.”
