Donald Trump Jr is in high political demand – for now | US news | The Guardian
Trump Jr’s fanbase sees him as an authentic political figure, but many conservative groups are waiting for the next shoe to drop
Donald Trump Jr is a man under pressure, but also in fierce demand.
To sworn enemies of Trump World he is at the centre of everything objectionable – from alleged election campaign collusion with Russia and the Trump Organization’s pursuit of global wealth to aggressive trolling of liberals on social media.
But, in a parallel political universe, there are the millions of Americans who love him. And, away from the firestorm that is the ongoing Robert Mueller Russia investigation, the president’s eldest son is building a considerable conservative fanbase. This constituency sees him as an authentic figure with a political future – assuming he can get out from under the Mueller probe.
