Donald Trump Jr spoke at the Republican National Convention and sounded more like his father than the President himself. He took the stage and commanded the nation’s attention.
“Trump’s policies have been like rocket fuel to the economy,” Trump Jr said during his speech, praising his father’s presidency. But his most effective lines were swipes at Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee for the presidency.
“Biden’s radical left-wing policies would stop our economic recovery cold,” Trump Jr urged. He further warned conservatives that Democrats would reverse the economic achievements that people had made under Trump.
“Biden has promised to take that money back out of your pocket and keep it in the Swamp,” Trump Jr said, adding: “That makes sense, considering Joe Biden is basically the Loch Ness Monster of the Swamp. For the past half-century, he’s been lurking around in there.”
A strong advocate for his father’s campaign, Donald Trump Jr’s supporters say he can electrify a room while his opponents accuse him of pouring petrol on the flames.
Firebrand speaker, sportsman, and hunter, Trump Jr is doing all he can to push his father to re-election. The Republican strategy has focused on energizing the president’s base of supporters, and they see the younger Trump as their ace in the hole.
