Trump Unveils Potential Vice Presidential Candidates

Trump Unveils Potential Vice Presidential Candidates: Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for president, has finally said who he wants to be his vice president.

On Sunday, the former president talked to Fox News and said that South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott are among the candidates he is considering to be his running mate in 2024.

Mr. Trump told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, “The Republican Party has a lot of good people.”

“I called Tim Scott and told him, ‘You’re a much better candidate for me than you are for yourself,'” he said.

Last month, Mr. Scott backed Mr. Trump after the senator dropped out of the Republican primary for president in early November.

Mr. Trump then said that he is also thinking about Ms. Noem, who backed him in early September, as a possible running mate.

“Kristi Noem has been incredible fighting for me,” he said of the South Dakota governor. “She said ‘I’d never run against him because I can’t beat him.’ That was a very nice thing to say.”

During an appearance on Bartiromo’s Sunday Morning Futures, Ms. Noem claimed that Mr. Trump had asked her to be his running mate.

“We talk all the time, but we’ve never had that conservation,” she said.

During a Fox News town hall meeting last month, Mr. Trump gave the impression that he had already picked his vice presidential candidate, but he wouldn’t say who it was.

Vivek Ramaswamy, Rep. Elise Stefanik, and Nikki Haley, the only Republican still running for president, are just a few of the names that have been thrown around as possible candidates.

Fox News, though, said Mr. Trump wouldn’t say who he wants to run with in 2024 for “a while.”

It was also said that he wasn’t thinking about Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as his vice presidential choice, and he said that his team had never contacted the independent candidate.

In his speech, Mr. Trump said that the most important thing he looks for in a vice presidential candidate is someone who can take over as president in an emergency.

“Always, it’s got to be who is going to be a good president. Obviously, you always have to think that because in case of emergency. Things happen, right? No matter who you are, things happen. That’s got to be number one,” Mr Trump said.

Mr. Trump is currently facing several lawsuits, including one that asks if he is eligible to run for office in 2024, and four criminal cases that could land him with a lot of jail time. However, he is still the clear favorite in the Republican race, having easily defeated his opponents in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary.
