Donald Trump Jr. seems to understand conservative policy preferences and the details of politics in a way his father seems utterly incapable of understanding it. More than that, he can articulate it. This was, by any measure, a very, very good convention speech.
So much so, in fact, that he received praise from some decidedly “not Trump” corners.
Is it just me or do you get the sense that DJT jr believes what he is saying more than his dad. He did a great job with his speech

Trump, Jr. should run for office. He sounds like someone I could vote for, unlike his father.

And my own two cents.
Trump camp should have a strategy meeting on how to have Donald Trump Jr. give every speech for the rest of the convention. And campaign.
