Trump Confirms Six Names on His Vice President List

At least six of the individuals on former president Trump’s list of potential running mates have been confirmed by Trump, who is now leading the Republican primary. Laura Ingraham of Fox News mentioned six possible candidates during a recent interview, making the shortlist public. The head of the MAGA party thinks they’re all good options:

  • South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott could be among Trump’s top potential choices. Fox News states that the former president singled out the former primary contender, who sat in the front row while Trump spoke at a recent event. He noted all the buzz involving Scott’s name and called him a “great advocate.”
  • Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy has also been one of Trump’s biggest supporters. Rumors of his possible campaigning alongside the MAGA leader began after he and his wife, Apoorva, appeared at a recent Mar-a-Lago event and the former president asked the entrepreneur to join him onstage for a short speech.
  • South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem also recently appeared as one of Trump’s special guests at a rally in the governor’s home state. Although she seemed eager to accept the offer to be the former president’s running mate, she may not be able to do so due to a statement she made on Fox and Friends, in which she hinted that she didn’t believe he had a chance of winning the general election.
  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis might also have been a real contender after dropping his own pursuit for the primary nomination and endorsing his former rival — and then he opened his mouth again. Trump advisor Chris LaCivita referred to Florida governor Ron DeSantis as a “sad little man” after he voiced worries about Trump’s potential involvement in “identity politics” with his vice presidential nominees.
  • Florida Rep. Byron Donalds has been among the conservative lawmakers who’ve supported Trump throughout the criminal allegations against him. He has been particularly vocal about his belief that the former president has been innocent throughout the indictments.
  • Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a former representative from Hawaii who defected to the Democratic Party in 2022, may be being considered for the next term by Trump after a recent conversation they had on international policy. According to the Washington Post, she has the potential to win over independent voters, who might give him a leg up in the next race.
