Adult child Don Jr. is freaking out about not getting his way. It’s not going well for him.

Donald Trump, Jr. put his political influence to the test this week, and it is not going well for him.

Trump, Jr. is furious with the conservative organization Club for Growth for breaking ranks with Trumpworld on primary candidate endorsements, and he’s reportedly thrown an all-out fit.

It began when Club for Growth chief David McIntosh ran ads against Trump-endorsed J.D. Vance in Ohio’s GOP Senate primary. According to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, Donald Trump responded by instructing an assistant to text McIntosh “Go f**k yourself.” Then, Trump, Jr. tweeted a video of himself campaigning for Vance while blasting “the RINO frauds attacking” the candidate.

Trump, Jr. escalated the conservative rift by posting a video attacking Vance’s primary opponent Josh Mandel, whom McIntosh endorsed. The eldest Trump offspring then threatened to attack other Club for Growth candidates unless McIntosh is removed by the board.

So how’d that work out for Jr.?

According to Washington Post investigative reporter Jack Dawsey, Club for Growth plans to increase their spending on Vance attack ads.

In addition to the Ohio Senate primary, Trump and Club for Growth also back different candidates in the Alabama Senate primary and the Arizona gubernatorial primary.

While the organization was “vehemently” opposed to Donald Trump’s own presidential campaign, Club for Growth has been described as “one of the biggest backers” of Republicans who later voted to overturn the results of the 2020 United States presidential election, having spent around $20 million on their campaigns in 2018 and 2020.
