Last Thursday, Trump Jr. headlined a rally in support of Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin's re-election bid with his partner Kimberly Guilfoyle at Pikeville's Appalachian Wireless Arena. According to WFPL, the event's organizers had to ask "the audience to move out of the seats and closer to the stage" because the rally was so "sparsely-attended." Roughly around 200 people were in attendance, WFPL reported.
In addition to running events to support the GOP, Trump Jr. also frequently tweets attacks at Democratic figures, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, freshman lawmaker Ilhan Omar and Senator Kamala Harris. In June, Trump Jr. shared a tweet from a right-wing personality who claimed that Harris was not black enough to represent African Americans.
"Kamala Harris is implying she is descended from American Black Slaves. She's not. She comes from Jamaican Slave Owners. That's fine. She's not an American Black. Period," Ali Alexander, a black MAGA personality who launched a website for other Trump supporters, tweeted. Trump Jr. quickly moved to share Alexander's sentiments, writing: "Is this true? Wow."
In March, Trump Jr. told Bloomberg he wouldn't "rule out" running for office in the future. "I definitely enjoy the fight," he said. "I definitely like being out there and I love being able to see the impact and the difference that it makes on these people's lives that I get to see all over the country."
