THE president's daughter-in-law Lara Trump may be the next member of the family in politics as she eyes the North Carolina Senate seat.
Lara, 38, has been married to Trump's middle son Eric for six years and worked as a senior adviser on the 2020 Trump campaign.
Mercedes Schlapp, a Trump campaign adviser, told the New York Times: "She's very charismatic, she understands retail politics well, and has a natural instinct for politics.
"In North Carolina, in particular, she’s a household name and people know her. She worked really hard on the campaign and was very involved in a lot of decisions throughout."
Her father-in-law, Donald, won the state in the 2020 election by 1.3 percentage points.
The Trump family's political moves have been in the spotlight since the president lost his bid for re-election.
Earlier this month, Trump's ex-chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said the president "will absolutely" run again for president in 2024.
"After this election's over who is the leading Republican candidate for 2024?" he told the Dublin think tank Institute for International and European Affairs.
"I think now, folks are starting to realize, wait a second, if Donald Trump loses he might be the guy, and I'm telling you, absolutely.
"I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on the shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024."'
However, shortly before these comments were made, rumors started to swirl that Trump's eldest son, Donald Jr, would be running in 2024.
Jr posted a photograph of himself on Instagram standing in front of a "Don JR 2024" banner at the Fallon Nevada Livestock Auction in October.
"Hahahahaha. Oh boy," Don Jr captioned it. "This was a sign I saw up at the Fallon Nevada Livestock Auction.
"This will make the lib heads explode. To whomever made that thanks for the compliment… but let’s get through 2020 with a big win first!!!!"
