Trump’s Potential VP Leaks?

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) avoided committing to accept the results of the 2024 election during a Sunday interview, instead expressing confidence that former President Trump would win his bid for the White House.

In his appearance on NBC News’s “Meet the Press,” Scott was questioned by Kristen Welker about his stance on Trump’s denial of the 2020 election results and his reluctance to promise to accept the 2024 election outcome. Welker inquired why Scott would consider running as vice president with Trump given their apparent differences on such a crucial issue.

When Welker pressed Scott to clarify whether he would accept the 2024 election results, Scott responded, “At the end of the day, the 47th president of the United States will be President Donald Trump. And I’m excited to get back to low inflation, low unemployment,” before being interrupted by Welker.

“Wait, wait, senator. Yes or no; yes or no? Will you accept the election results of 2024, no matter who wins?” Welker continued.

“That is my statement,” was Scott’s reply.

Welker persisted, “But just yes or no: Will you accept the election results of 2024?” but Scott maintained his previous response.

“I look forward to President Trump being the 47th president. Kristen, you can ask it multiple times,” he stated, as Welker again sought a direct yes or no.

“The American people will make the decision, and the decision will be for President Trump.”

Welker pressed further for a commitment to the election results, to which Scott then shifted his focus to criticize Welker and NBC, accusing them of being biased towards the Democratic party.

“At the end of the day, I said what I said. I know that the American people, their voices will be heard, and I believe that President Trump will be our next president. It’s that simple,” he concluded.

As Welker reiterated her question, highlighting Scott’s potential vice-presidential candidacy, Scott reiterated his belief in Trump’s victory in 2024 and refused to entertain her “hypothetical question.”
