12-Year-Old Running Trump Campaign Office in Colorado
According to a new report, a 12-year-old is running one of Donald Trump’s campaign offices in Colorado.
The Hill reports:
Weston Imer runs operations for the Republican presidential nominee’s camp in Jefferson County, KDVR News said Sunday.
KDVR News said Jefferson County is one of the most populous counties in Colorado, as it includes part of the Denver metro area.
Imer is responsible for gathering volunteers and helping get out the vote for Trump in the critical swing state, the news station added.
“Get involved,” Imer said Sunday when asked what he hopes to accomplish in his role. “That’s what I’m going to say. Get involved. Kids need to be educated.”
Laurel Imer, Weston Imer’s mother, said Sunday that she remains Trump’s official field coordinator for Jefferson County on paper.
Laurel Imer hopes her son’s example inspires other parents to let their own children have similar duties.
“You have a responsibility to your children to teach them,” she said, noting the bipartisan need for such political education.
KDVR News said Weston Imer starts school next month, so he hopes to perform his job with Trump’s campaign until at least that time.
Weston Imer is actively recruiting friends to the billionaire’s cause, the station added, and has even met Trump in person.
“Watch for me — 2040,” he said when asked if he aspires to run for elected office. “And Barron Trump, if you’re watching, in 2040 I’ll take you as my running mate.”
KDVR News added that Weston Imer is first eligible to seek the White House in 2040. Barron Trump, Donald Trump’s youngest son, would remain a few months shy of the constitutional deadline.
The Constitution requires both the president and vice president to be at least 35 years old when seeking the Oval Office.
