Trump Confirms His VP Selection!

Trump Confirms His VP Selection!

Though he hasn’t revealed it to them yet, former President Donald Trump informed reporters in Philadelphia that he has chosen his running mate.

Trump has selected his vice president, though he hasn’t informed the individual yet, according to NBC News reporter Jake Traylor. Traylor also mentioned that the candidate will be present at the upcoming presidential debate between President Biden and Trump.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Dr. Ben Carson, Gov. Doug Burgum of North Dakota, Sen. JD Vance (R-OH), and Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) are among the contenders Trump is reportedly considering for vice president.

Before making a final decision, which is expected to happen at or before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee next month, the names on the shortlist are being scrutinized.

The choice of Trump’s running mate has been the subject of much speculation and interest, fueled by the Trump campaign. Insiders have pointed out that some “dark horse candidates,” such as billionaire Vivek Ramaswamy, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), and Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, are still in contention, despite the extensive media coverage of the individuals on the shortlist.

“Trump is looking for three things,” one Trump insider told the New York Post earlier this month. “He’s looking for who can raise money, who is an effective surrogate on TV with adversarial media, and who will do the best job debating Kamala Harris.”

The former president has repeatedly stated that he will make his announcement at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, next month.
