Donald Trump Jr. may share more than his namesake with his father.

Fresh off the high of not getting indicted by federal prosecutors for his role in coordinating a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, Trump Jr. told Bloomberg Radio’s “Sound On” that he’s not ruling out a future in politics. But he’s not in any hurry.

“If I can be helpful and I can be powerful voice for that that’s my primary focus,” Trump Jr. said, saying his main focus at the moment is promoting his father’s policies across the country.

“As for the future,” he continued, according to Bloomberg, “I never want to rule it out. I definitely enjoy the fight. 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.”

When asked what kind of office he might eventually seek, he demurred.

“We have a lot of time,” he said. “My father decided to get into politics at 68. I’m 41, I’ve got plenty of time.”
