Don Trump Jr has teased a potential presidential run in 2024, posing with a sign endorsing his candidacy in a photo on Instagram.
‘Oh boy. This was a sign I saw up at the Fallon Nevada Livestock Auction. This will make the lib heads explode,’ Trump Jr said in the caption to the Instagram post on Saturday.
‘To whomever made that thanks for the compliment… but let’s get through 2020 with a big win first!!!!’ he continued.
Trump Jr has not actively participated in his father’s administration, unlike his sister Ivanka.

Trump Jr, pictured on October 14 in Tucson, is a high profile campaigner for his father
The 42-year-old has remained in the private sector as an executive with the Trump organization.
However, he has passionately embraced his father’s political agenda, writing two books – Triggered and Liberal Privilege – to promote his and his father’s pro-gun, free market, conservative agenda.
He has also cultivated a cult following on social media, with his Twitter retorts even more abrasive than his father’s.
He divorced his wife Vanessa, who disliked politics, and is now with Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host and conservative commentator who serves as the finance chair for his father’s re-election campaign.
And he has proved one of the most powerful speakers on the Trump campaign, whipping up hardcore MAGA aficionados with fiery rhetoric and plenty of ‘Liberal bashing’.

The 42-year-old has just published his second book promoting Trump’s political views
‘Don Jr. represents the emotional center of the MAGA universe,’ said Jason Miller, a senior adviser on Trump’s re-election campaign, in a New York Times feature this summer about political Don Jr’s future.
His popularity has let to speculation that he may try and follow his father into politics, with some floating a run for mayor of New York when Bill de Blasio steps down next year.
His chances in the strongly Democrat city would be slim, however.
‘He couldn’t win as a Republican, he wouldn’t have a chance,’ the president told Fox News last month.
Others speculate that he may have more luck running for office in Montana or Florida.
