Donald Trump Jr. Takes on ‘the Swamp’ — By Jumping into Gator-Infested Waters on a Bet
Instead of draining the swamp, Donald Trump Jr. dove right in.
President Donald Trump‘s eldest son took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of himself in what he said was a “gator-infested swamp” during a weekend trip to Louisiana.
Trump Jr., 40, explained that he jumped into the murky and potentially dangerous waters on a bet. “This is what happens when someone bets me a good sum that there’s no way that the guy from New York City would swim in a gator infested swamp/bayou down in Louisiana,” he captioned the photo. “Easy money!!!”
Trump Jr. was in Louisiana for an annual alligator hunt to raise money for Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. He was joined by girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.
