Kellyanne Conway Shares Big Update On Donald Trump's Running Mate

Kellyanne Conway, a contributor to Fox News, forecasted that former President Donald Trump would achieve “significant gains” among Hispanic voters in the upcoming November elections. She also recommended that he select a person of color as his vice-presidential running mate.

During a segment on Fox’s “Outnumbered,” the panel criticized President Joe Biden’s attempts to attract Latino voters, accusing him of pandering. According to a February poll by The New York Times and Siena College, Trump is ahead of Biden by six points with Latino voters.

In the 2020 election, Biden won the Latino vote nationwide, but Trump came close to capturing the majority in several key states, including Florida. Conway argued that the surge of migrants entering from the south and the impacts of COVID-19 lockdowns would push more Hispanic voters toward Trump in 2024.

“Hispanics have numerous reasons to abandon Biden and Harris, especially because of the border situation. It's quite cynical of the Democratic Party to think that criticizing Trump on immigration, nine years after he made his stance clear with 'Build the wall' and 'America first,' will win them Hispanic votes,” Conway said.

“Nine years later, Democrats still believe that attacking Trump on the border will win them Hispanic votes. Hispanics are also upset about the Democrats' hostility to religion, masking their children, and keeping them out of school for nearly two years. The loss of economic upward mobility also frustrates them. Thus, I predict Trump will see a significant increase in support from Hispanics, and this is why he should choose a person of color as his VP,” she continued.

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Conway emphasized that when choosing Trump’s running mate for 2024, the question “Who?” is less critical than “Why?”

“In other words, the individual should enhance, not complicate, his America First agenda and understand the distinction between loyalty-as-tenacity (yes) and loyalty-as-obsequiousness (no),” Conway wrote.

This commentary comes as a former Democratic donor and current big tech executive explained last week why he and others in the industry are now backing Trump.

Jacob Helberg, a senior policy advisor to Palantir Technologies CEO Alex Karp and a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, detailed why he and others had shifted their support from Biden and the Democrats to Trump during an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.

“Deep blue turning red as the tide turns. Trump in Silicon Valley, members of California’s traditionally liberal tech community showing support for Trump at a major fundraiser last week, raising $12 million for his campaign,” Bartiromo introduced the segment, noting Helberg’s attendance.

“You were previously a prominent Democratic donor and supported Biden in his last presidential run. Why are you now supporting President Trump?” she asked.

“Over the last four years, like many in California and Silicon Valley, I watched the Democratic Party be taken over by the Squad and woke ideology,” Helberg explained. “Biden campaigned as a moderate but has governed as a radical progressive, constantly catering to his base and becoming out of touch with the rest of the country.”


Silicon Valley, near San Francisco—Nancy Pelosi’s district—has long been a Democratic stronghold. Just the News reported that the significant fundraising amount came not from average citizens but from high-dollar donors with Silicon Valley connections.

Situated in the Bay Area, the Valley is home to numerous tech and venture capital firms. Recently, many prominent figures from this sector have voiced their support for Trump.

“In 2016, I knew only one person from Silicon Valley who supported Trump—Peter Thiel. Now, I can count dozens, if not more,” Helberg told Reuters after the event. “Over the past six months, we’ve seen a significant shift.”

A Trump campaign official told Just the News that “the event hosted by David Sacks and Chamath Palihapitiya had over 100 attendees, including some of the tech industry's most influential investors and innovators, and raised $12 million.”

Sacks has been a vocal critic of the Biden administration's foreign policy, especially regarding the Ukraine War. His calls for negotiations with Moscow have garnered significant online attention.

Sacks detailed his reasons for supporting Trump in a lengthy post on X last week, highlighting the economy, foreign policy, border security, and the legal challenges facing the former president.
