Trump Teases Potential VP Choices, Names Tim Scott and Kristi Noem 🗳️
In a recent Sunday discussion, former President Trump stirred the pot of VP speculation for his 2024 campaign by mentioning Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) as potential contenders. During his chat with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Trump was quizzed about his timeline for unveiling his vice-presidential choice, to which he replied, “Not for a while,” highlighting the abundance of talent within the GOP.
Bartiromo delved deeper, inquiring about Trump’s criteria for selecting his running mate. Trump emphasized the paramount importance of choosing someone capable of stepping into the presidential role, given the unpredictability of emergencies. He admitted to not having made a decision yet, underscoring that there’s no rush.
Trump revealed his recent communication with Scott, who had previously endorsed him after suspending his own presidential campaign. He praised Scott’s loyalty and defense, noting a marked difference in Scott’s demeanor when supporting Trump compared to his own campaign. Similarly, Trump lauded Noem for her staunch support, referencing her statement about not running against him due to his unbeatable stance.
The speculation around Trump’s VP pick includes other prominent Republicans like Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), known for her firm support of Trump. As Trump leads the GOP field, including a significant advantage over Nikki Haley, his VP choice remains a highly anticipated decision, with Scott and Noem currently in the spotlight.
