“I’m inspired by my family’s legacy of public service,” he said. “It’s something that I’m very proud of, but I’m still trying to make my own way, figure things out, so stay tuned.”

As he sat next to his mother, Caroline Kennedy, he was asked by hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie what his thoughts were on his mother’s possible political future.

He admitted he would “support my mother in anything she does,” adding, “I love her so much, but that’s her decision and I’ll leave it at that.”

Caroline Kennedy was the former U.S. Ambassador to Japan after being appointed by President Obama. She stepped down from the post in January after three years of service.

The mother and son were on the Today show to announce that President Obama would be receiving the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, which the two will grant to the 44th commander in chief Sunday.

“We’re seeing today it’s pretty easy to criticize without offering solutions, and that President Obama did not do that,” Schlossberg said. “He had the courage to govern responsibly.”
