Trump Reveals Short List Of Potential VPs

(Patriot Insider) – With former President Donald Trump currently making a very strong showing in the GOP primary, it’s assumed he’ll end up being the nominee taking on President Joe Biden later this year. As such, much speculation is being done about who he might choose as his vice presidential running mate. Trump himself recently indicated there are roughly six contenders for the position, including three individuals who were his rivals in the early part of the primary race.

According to Fox News, “The commanding frontrunner for the GOP nomination had plenty of praise for one of those potential candidates who joined Trump at Fox News town hall on Tuesday in this upstate South Carolina city.”

While making an appearance on “The Ingraham Angle,” during a town hall, the former president was asked about several folks who could be potential vice president picks, a list that includes: Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, Vivek Ramaswamy, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida, and even former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Ohio, formerly a Democrat, who left the party to become an independent.

Gabbard would be an interesting choice as it could potentially pull in more left-of-center independents who are on the fence about voting for Trump. Most folks on the list would be good picks though, so that’s comforting.

“Are they all on your shortlist?” host Laura Ingraham went on to ask the former president.

“They are,” Trump replied to Ingraham. “Honestly, all of those people are good. They’re all good, they’re all solid.”

“Trump has a history of making comments off the cuff, and many in the political world see DeSantis as Trump’s running mate as a stretch, since the two and their camps blasted each other for over a year before the Florida governor suspended his 2024 campaign last month just ahead of the New Hampshire primary,” Fox noted. “DeSantis endorsed Trump at the time but has not joined him on the campaign trail in the ensuing weeks. In fact, DeSantis was also in South Carolina on Tuesday for an official event and did not team up with Trump.”

Ramaswamy was always outspokenly supportive of Trump and his agenda for the country and made that support official when he dropped out of the primary last month after the former president cleaned house at the Iowa caucuses. He has since teamed up with Trump and campaigned on his behalf, including this week in South Carolina, Nikki Haley’s home state.

“Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, suspended his presidential bid in November and enthusiastically endorsed Trump in New Hampshire last month. He has also joined the former president on the campaign trail in South Carolina the past two weeks. Scott — as he arrived at the Greenville Convention Center — received a warm welcome from the large crowd of mostly Trump supporters in the audience,” the report continued.

“A lot of people are talking about that gentleman right over there,” Trump stated as he pointed out Scott in the crowd.

“He’s been such a great advocate. I have to say this in a very positive way, Tim Scott, he has been much better for me than he was for himself. I watched his campaign, and he doesn’t like talking about himself. But, boy, does he talk about Trump,” the former president remarked of Scott. “I called him and I said, ‘Tim, you’re better for me than you were for yourself.’”

Another big name on the list, Noem, is a longtime supporter of Trump, as is Donalds, a black congressman who has been a voice for the America first agenda in Congress. Which is what we desperately need right now. As one can clearly see from the border crisis and the fact that we’re sending billions of dollars overseas while the people of our own country are struggling to get by thanks to massive inflation and ridiculously high prices for groceries. It’s time to take care of business at home before we dare even think of helping others.

“Gabbard, who served in the Iraq War and ran unsuccessfully for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, became increasingly critical of her party after she left Congress. Two years ago, Gabbard became an independent and has become a favorite among conservatives,” Fox News’ article read. “The Trump town hall was held four days before Saturday’s Republican presidential primary in South Carolina, where polls indicate Trump maintains a very large double-digit lead over his last remaining major rival — former U.N. ambassador and former Palmetto State Gov. Nikki Haley.”

“I refuse to quit. South Carolina will vote on Saturday. But on Sunday, I’ll still be running for president. I’m not going anywhere,” Haley made clear, going on to add, “I have no fear of Trump’s retribution.”

During the town hall, Trump pointed out that a candidate is not supposed to lose their own home state and “she’s losing it bigly.”

“I don’t think she knows how to get out,” Trump said. “She just can’t get herself to get out.”

Oh, and just to be clear, Trump has completely and totally ruled out Haley as a potential vice presidential pick.

  1. Haley is terrible. What is she talking about “Trump’s retribution?” Who has Trump ever harmed for disagreeing with him? Haley sets herself up as a victim because she knows she doesn’t have a prayer of winning. Boo hoo.
