DALLAS – Donald Trump Jr. has said he will be “everywhere” in the 2022 midterm election as Republicans aim to win back a majority in the House and Senate.
“I’m going to be very involved,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News Friday, minutes before his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas.

Former President Trump’s eldest son, who enjoys a large following among many staunch Trump supporters, was very active on the campaign trail last year during his father’s unsuccessful run for re-election.
And Trump Jr. has promised that “you’ll see me everywhere” during the 2022 cycle.
“I’m looking at what’s going on and someone has to push back,” he said, pointing to the policies advocated by President Biden and the Democrats in Congress.
“There aren’t a lot of people who are sort of privileged to have a great platform,” said Trump Jr., who has 6.8 million followers on Twitter. “There aren’t a lot of people with a big platform who are actually ready to use it.. It’s a battle we have to fight. I’m happy to do it.”

For months, the former president repeatedly flirted with a potential 2024 presidential bid, in an attempt to win back the White House. Some political experts see Trump Jr. as a potential candidate for the next GOP presidential nomination if his father doesn’t show up.
“I haven’t thought about it personally,” Trump Jr. replied when asked by Fox News if he was considering a run in 2024 if his father didn’t launch a campaign.
“There are people who talk about it in terms of polls,” he said. “I’ve seen a bunch of them that put me at the top of the list if not the top. Who knows. The reality with this job is that you have to want to do the day job as well. It’s not just about campaigning. . I love being in this fight. I love fighting for the things I believe in as a conservative. I will do it independently. “
