New Reports Claim Trump Campaign Has Reached Out To RFK, Jr. About Possible VP


As Nikki Haley’s hopes for securing the GOP nomination for president are quickly fading, rumors are beginning to swirl regarding who Trump’s pick for a running mate may be.

One name that emerged recently was none other than Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is currently running for the oval office as an independent.

The idea is that RFK Jr. joining Trump’s presidential ticket would likely have some appeal to independent voters.

It’s an intriguing prospect that has been met with mixed responses.

Some are ecstatic at the prospect of a “unity” ticket.

Many consider a Trump/RFK Jr. ticket to be a lock for winning the 2024 election.

Others are skeptical, if not completely unenthusiastic, about a democrat joining Trump’s ticket.

Any criticism of RFK Jr. aside, it’s hard to believe that a ticket with his name on it wouldn’t pull in a significant number of votes from independents that are on the fence.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

More on this development from the New York Post:

People close to former President Trump made preliminary overtures to Robert F. Kennedy about the possibility of serving as his running mate, The Post has learned.

“Trump operatives expressed an interest in Kennedy early on, but it was all premature,” said one person familiar with the matter, adding that it was “right out of the box when Bobby announced” in April 2023 he was running for president.

“Anything’s possible. I wouldn’t write it off by any means,” the insider continued.

Kennedy, 70, who initially was running as a Democrat but is now an independent, wasn’t interested and has continued to shoot down speculation that he would ever take a job as Trump’s veep.
