THIS COULD BE HUGE: Trump Jr. May Run For Office Next Year
Donald Trump Jr. could be interested in running for governor of New York, according to a Thursday report from Axios.

The president’s son asserted he was very interested in running for governor, although he didn’t specifically say if he planned to run in 2018. New York’s current Democratic governor, Andrew Cuomo, is expected to run for re-election in 2018, and Ballotpedia ranks the seat as “safe democratic”

“Do I want to be behind the scenes and be a mouthpiece and fight back against crazy liberal media? Maybe,” Trump told members of a prestigious gun club in Hicksville, N.Y., Wednesday.

“Going back to doing deals is boring after 18 months. The politics bug bit me.”

Donald John "Don" Trump Jr. (born December 31, 1977) is an American businessman and former reality TV personality. He is the oldest child of the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, and his first wife, Ivana. He currently works alongside his brother Eric as a trustee of The Trump Organization. A longtime company Executive VP and sole controller of the company’s commercial leasing operation,[2] in his trustee role he and his brother will run the company during his father's presidency.


Early life and education

Trump was born on December 31, 1977 in Manhattan, New York City, to Ivana Marie (née Zelníčková) and Donald John Trump. He has two younger siblings, Ivanka and Eric. He also has two half siblings, Tiffany, from his father's marriage to Marla Maples, and Barron, from his father's current marriage to Melania Trump. Trump was particularly close to his maternal grandfather and is fluent in Czech.[3]

His parents' widely publicized divorce affected Trump, who as a child encountered reporters asking about his father's affair with Maples. To protect her children, Ivana Trump sent her children to boarding school.[4] Trump was educated at The Hill School, a university-preparatory boarding school in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, followed by the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, where he earned a B.S. degree in Economics.[5]

After college graduation, Trump moved to Aspen, Colorado. While briefly estranged from his father, for a year he hunted, fished, skied, lived in a truck, and worked as a bartender before returning to New York and joining the Trump Organization. Trump supervises building projects, including 40 Wall Street, Trump International Hotel and Tower, and Trump Park Avenue.[4] Trump appeared as a guest adviser and judge on many episodes of his father's reality television show The Apprentice, from season 5 in 2006 to his father's last season.

On January 11, his father announced that he and his brother Eric would oversee a trust that included the Trump Organization assets while his father was President, in order to avert a conflict of interest.[6]

Personal life

Trump married model Vanessa Kay Haydon (born December 18, 1977) on November 12, 2005, at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida; the service was officiated by Trump's aunt, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.[7] Haydon is the daughter of Bonnie and Charles Haydon,[8] and is of half Jewish and half Danish descent.[9][10] She is an alumna of the Dwight School[11] and studied psychology at New York's Marymount Manhattan College.[8] They have five children. Their two daughters are Kai Madison (born May 12, 2007) and Chloe Sophia (born June 16, 2014).[12] Their three sons are[13] Donald John III (born February 18, 2009),[14] Tristan Milos (born October 2, 2011),[15][16] and Spencer Frederick (born October 21, 2012).[17]

In his childhood, Trump learned to hunt and fish by spending time with his maternal grandfather in what was then Czechoslovakia.[18] Controversy erupted in 2012 when pictures surfaced of an African hunting trip Trump had taken in 2010. In one photo Trump has his arms around an endangered, dead leopard, and in another he is holding a knife in one hand and a bloody elephant tail in the other. Although the hunt was legal, many people were outraged, and at least one sponsor dropped his father's Celebrity Apprentice TV show.[19]
