Don Jr. to embark on next move to reach Trump’s base: ‘These are my friends. These are my people’

Donald Trump Jr., eldest son of former President Donald Trump, is billing himself as a trustworthy voice on the right in the post-Trump presidency era, insisting that he is in a unique position to gain traction in criticizing President Joe Biden.

“The reality is that pretty much no one out there has the ability to have the platform that I have to be able to get it out there,” Trump Jr. told the Washington Examiner.


Trump’s namesake just self-published his second book, Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden And The Democrats’ Defense Of The Indefensible, and he “is returning to the glare of the Klieg lights to take on the new president with a tour, newsletter, and direct messages to the MAGA nation,” wrote Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard.

With most conservative authors forced to rely on New York publishers, who have vowed to ban Trump and his top aides, according to Bedard, there’s a real advantage to being able to print your own book.

“It’s the only book out,” Trump Jr. said. “It’s also probably the only book in the near future that will be critical of Biden because no one will publish anything from a conservative viewpoint. I think we have a great head start.”

The book centers on the scandalous Biden family financing and calls out Biden for not living up to his campaign promises.

“The reality is, I could rename the book ‘I Told You So,’” Trump Jr. said.

In addition to his book, Trump Jr. has his own website and is gaining popularity on the instant messaging platform Telegram, where he has over 1 million subscribers.

And while there may be plenty of speculation about presidential aspirations, Trump Jr. was clear that he’s comfortable in the political arena.

“Politics allowed me to actually be who I was more so than the guy in a boardroom in New York City,” he said. “It’s the guy who I was on the weekends. I was acting, per se, when I put on a suit to be in a boardroom. You know, I actually understand the base because I live with the base. These are my friends. These are my people.”

With his father being acquitted for a second time in a Democratic impeachment effort many saw as political theater, Trump Jr. said that the family is more popular than ever because the people “realize they have been played.”

“We’re more popular with the base now than we were on Election Day,” he said. “I think because they realize how bad it is. They realize the tech censorship, which we talked about extensively. They realize that the lies that the media sold them.”

Zeroing in on Biden, Trump Jr. said the 78-year-old Democrat makes for the perfect “puppet” for the progressive left.

“[The base] realize that they’ve been sold in a bill of goods that was nonsense,” he continued. “Joe Biden’s not the moderate nice guy that they made him out to be. He’s a puppet of the radical left, and he’s their dream guy because he’ll sign whatever they put in front of them, and he doesn’t know the difference.”

Selling himself as one not afraid of D.C. liberals, Trump Jr. said he can be a voice for hardworking Americans.

“The reality is this,” he said. “There is a shortage of conservatives out there who are willing to say what everyone in the conservative movement feels and believes. They’re afraid. They’re worried about being canceled. They care more about what some liberal at some D.C. quote-unquote ‘think tank’ thinks about them than they do the guy who just lost his job and won’t be able to feed his family next week.

“I couldn’t care less. I couldn’t care less what those people think,” Trump Jr. added. “I care about the hard-working men and women. That’s what we made our campaign on. That’s what we’re going to do.”
