Trump's campaign manager says the Trumps 'will be a dynasty that lasts for decades'

Brad Parscale can see it now: Sen. Donald Trump Jr., President Ivanka Trump, and Dogcatcher Eric Trump.

Parscale is President Trump's 2020 campaign manager, and on Saturday, he shared his vision for the future of American politics. "The Trumps will be a dynasty that lasts for decades," Parscale said during a GOP convention in California. Trump's relatives have "amazing capabilities," he later told reporters. "I think you see that from Don Jr. I think you see that from Ivanka. You see it from Jared [Kushner]. You see it from all."

Friends of the Trump children and their spouses have said they believe any of them could run for office, The New York Times reports. A campaign official told the newspaper that Parscale can especially see Trump's kids raising money for candidates and going on the road, giving political speeches. His choice of the word "dynasty" annoyed some Republicans, who told the Times a lot of people don't want to see another political dynasty, and this was an insult hurled at Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

The Trumps who have been mentioned as future candidates, by friends and spectators, include Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump. Trump Jr. told the Times in 2018 he's not planning to run anytime soon, but wouldn't rule it out. "I love the intensity of campaigning," he said. "I love aspects of the fight. I don't know how much I would love aspects of the actual job yet." As for Ivanka, the president told The Atlantic if she ever ran for president, "I think she'd be very, very hard to beat."
