Donald Trump Name Drops Potential Running Mates In Interview, One Individual Reportedly No Longer Under Consideration

During an interview with News12 at Thursday’s South Bronx rally, Donald Trump said he would wait until July’s Republican National Convention to reveal his vice president.

According to the New York Post, Trump said he would announce his running mate “sometime during the convention.”

However, Trump name dropped four individuals when discussing his potential running mate.

He mentioned former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), and Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

However, the number of legitimate contenders is likely much greater than the four names Trump mentioned in the interview.

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum previously told the New York Post there could be up to 50 people under consideration for the VP role.

From the New York Post:

But Trump, as usual, refused to provide any further clues.

“We have so many, I don’t want to do that, we have so many,” he said when asked to identify his top three choices.

“We have many people who would do a fantastic job.”

Trump also dished on his former rival Nikki Haley, who revealed Wednesday that she will be voting for him in November.

The former UN ambassador had kept quiet about the prospect of backing Trump after dropping out of the 2024 presidential race in early March, but ultimately said she would support her onetime rival because President Biden has been a “catastrophe.”

According to reports, it appears former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is no longer under consideration for Trump’s running mate.

From The Spectator:

Cockburn snagged an invite to Tulsi Gabbard’s book party in DC on Thursday night, hosted by Spectator editor-at-large Ben Domenech and his wife Meghan McCain. Some Fox News heavy hitters such as Harris Faulkner and Howie Kurtz were there, as well as Mark Halperin, Robby Soave, Mary Margaret Olohan, Ryan Girdusky, Amber and Jonathan Duke, Bethany Mandel, Juliegrace Brufke, Reagan Reese, Vanessa Santos and others.

Word on the street was that one day prior, Tulsi was informed by President Donald Trump that she would not be chosen as his vice president.

The National Pulse noted:

Gabbard became a celebrity among Republican and MAGA circles after her public split from the Democratic Party. She became an outspoken advocate for former President Trump and his America-First policies. In February, Gabbard — a veteran—met with Trump to discuss reforms at the Pentagon, and in March, she headlined a conservative group’s fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago.

In The National Pulse’s Trump VP straw poll conducted earlier this month, Gabbard tied with Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) as readers’ third-place pick at 11 percent.
