Donald Trump Jr. is said to be eyeing a 2024 presidential run in an attempt to create a family “dynasty” in the White House.

In an interview with the Times of London, Eric Trump said that although he has no political ambitions himself, he believes his older brother does.

When asked if there could be a Trump family dynasty, Eric replied, “Oh sure.”

In 2018, The Guardian reported that Trump Jr. had not only become a skilled fundraiser for his father’s reelection campaign — he also has been regularly called upon by supporters to run for president himself.

“Away from the firestorm that is the ongoing Robert Mueller Russia investigation, the president’s eldest son is building a considerable conservative fanbase,” The Guardian‘s David Taylor reported. “This constituency sees him as an authentic figure with a political future.”

“From the Republican party standpoint, he very much is the guy,” Republican strategist and former congressional chief of staff Boyd Matheson told the newspaper. “He can be the face, he can go out with the hunters.”

"I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."
