Donald Trump Jr. is eyeing the next mayoral election for New York City, and says that he would love to dethrone Bill de Blasio, “if I could do that as a service to my country,” he added.
I doubt de Blasio considered the possibility of running against a Trump when he recently stated that Donald Trump is no longer welcome in the city. Ha!
While appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, Trump Jr. said, “I never like to rule anything out,” about running for mayor, “We always like to keep our options open, so if I could do that as a service to my country, I would love to do that.”
De Blasio succeeded the independent billionaire Mike Bloomberg as New York mayor in 2013, defeating the Republican Joe Lhota in a landslide to become the first Democrat elected since 1989. The next election is due in 2017. De Blasio is expected to be challenged within his own party.
Discussing the 2016 presidential election, Trump Jr responded to a claim on the same CNN show by Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, that Russian hackers were responsible for leaking Democratic national committee emails via Wikileaks, in an attempt to boost the Trump campaign.
Liberals are part of a “disgusting rigged system”, Trump Jr stated, “They should be ashamed of themselves. If we did that, if the [Republican national committee] did that, if my father did that, they’d have people calling for the electric chair.”
“It just goes to show you their exact moral compass. They’ll say anything to win this,” he added.
Personally, I would love to see him as the mayor of New York City. It would just be the icing on the cake.
