By 2019, there could be two Donald Trumps in public office.
That, according to the New York Post, could be a true statement after the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., told a posh Long Island gun club he is thinking about challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.).
Trump Jr. did not say he would definitely seek to unseat the two-term governor and former HUD secretary, but that if he chose to run for an office in the near future, it would likely be that one.
He said he had no interest in running for mayor, or being “one of 100” senators or congressmen.
Trump Jr. said that in the time since his father’s campaign ended, Trump Organization business deals seem a little more “boring.”
“The politics bug bit me,” the 39-year-old said at the F6 Labs gun club in Hicksville, N.Y.
“Do I want to be behind the scenes and be a mouthpiece and fight back against crazy liberal media? Maybe.” Trump Jr. said to the group that reportedly included the local police commissioner and several regional businessmen.
The Post noted that Trump Jr. is an avid outdoorsman, gun rights advocate and hunter– all factors that could help him in the largely mountainous and more conservative ‘Upstate’.
Cuomo, 59, all but kicked-off his campaign for a third term at a January event in his hometown of Queens, N.Y., and is seen as a possible challenger to President Trump in 2020.
