The Trump family seems to live the motto “Work Hard, Play Hard.” Over the weekend, Donald Trump Jr. posted a video on his Facebook page from inside the cockpit of his father’s private jet. While this was cool enough in and of itself, viewers were absolutely stunned when they saw who was flying the luxury plane.
“Kai and Donnie helping fly Trump Force One. Little takeoff action at LGA this evening. Family spring break time,” Trump Jr., who is now running the family business alongside his brother, captioned the footage.
WATCH the president’s two oldest grandchildren get a firsthand flying lesson below:

The video, which now has over 200,000 views, delighted Facebook users who took to the comments section to share their approval. “How awesome…keep the pics and videos coming….we all love and appreciate the sharing..,” wrote a proud Trump supporter.
One woman even implored Trump Jr. to run for Governor of New Jersey, clearly pleased with the influence that his family has had on the political scene in the past year. “Please run for Governor of New Jersey,” she wrote. “We need to make New Jersey great again. We need a good Republican that will beat out the front runner, Phil Murphy.”
Trump Jr. recently stated that he enjoys his newfound role in politics, though it has died down since he hit the campaign trail for his father during election season. “I thought I was out of politics after Election Day and [would] get back to my regular life and my family. But I couldn’t,” he said in a speech at a GOP fundraiser in Dallas last weekend. “Deals are still exciting, but when you’re the sort of guy out there every day, 24-7, fighting in this thing — it’s like a great fight.”
Trump Jr. said during the same gathering that he has “basically zero” contact with his father now. The president famously gave up control of his multi-billion-dollar real estate business when he took office, handing it over to his sons, in order to quash any concerns surrounding conflicts of interest.
Donald Trump Jr. regularly posts photographs and video clips of his family on social media. He and his wife Vanessa share five small children together. His oldest son, Donald Trump III, was recently embroiled in a controversy of his own when two Secret Service agents were caught taking selfies with him as he dozed off in the backseat of a vehicle. Hopefully, the Trump family is getting some much-needed R&R over Spring Break and is beginning to recover from this incident.
