Trump Gives Hint About Running Mate Pick

Former President Trump weighed in on his pick for vice president in the 2024 Republican presidential primary on the “Todd Starnes Show” Monday.

“Have you started thinking about vice presidents? Have you thought about a running mate?” host Todd Starnes asked the GOP frontrunner.

“A little bit,” Trump said. “Remember one thing. A running mate is very important…it’s very important, especially should something happen where there has to be a replacement, so it is a very important decision.”

Looking at the election, Trump said the “vice president never really helps too much,” adding it’s really about him.

“We have great people in the party, and we’ll do the right thing,” the former president said.

“We’ll pick the best person, and actually a lot of people think people are running for that reason. But we’ll see if that’s the reason. We’re doing very well in the polls. We’re way up, a 40-50 point lead in many instances, and very importantly we’re beating Biden by a lot…more than DeSantis is beating him, by a lot.”

Starnes asked if DeSantis could be Trump’s running mate.

“I don’t know. I don’t like saying anything is impossible, but pretty unlikely I would think,” Trump explained. “I endorsed him. I got him elected. And then he did this. I was very surprised that he did. Without that it would’ve been a distinct possibility.

Trump added, “He certainly has gone way down in the polls and I’ve gone way up.”

Is Trump your pick for 2024?
