Trump Tells Reporters He Has Decided on VP Pick

via ABC

Former President Donald Trump has hinted at selecting his vice president without revealing the name, generating anticipation within the Republican Party.

Speculation surrounds potential candidates like Senator JD Vance, Rep. Elise Stefanik, Senator Tim Scott, Senator Marco Rubio, Dr. Ben Carson, and Governor Doug Burgum.

“Trump tells me and @DashaBurns just now: – He’s picked his VP – He hasn’t told them yet – They’ll be at the debate,” NBC News reporter Jake Traylor wrote.

Trump’s choice is significant, considering factors like party factions, legacy, and the 2028 elections.

Senator Tim Scott is suggested as a likely pick by a Republican senator during a Newsmax TV interview.

“Senator, I would love to moderate a debate with you, but I have a hunch that there might be a vice presidential debate,” Newsmax’s Eric Bolling said to Senator Scott. “Maybe Kamala Harris will be debating Senator Tim Scott on that one, and I would be honored to moderate that one.”

“If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you,” Scott said. “We’ll see what happens… but we need a new president. And that’s Donald Trump.”

“And a new vice president, and is it you?” Bolling added.

“We’ll have to wait and see,” Scott said.

Kamala Harris has agreed to a single debate against Trump’s running mate, highlighting the evolving dynamics of the upcoming elections and potential debates.

“This is the Wild West of debate proposals. We put out a debate proposal for a presidential debate. It was accepted by former President Trump. Not accepted yet by the Biden camp in early October and now there’s a pitch specifically for the vice presidential debate that went out about half an hour ago to both campaigns, suggesting that in addition, the Fox News media has reached out to Virginia State University (VSU) as a possible location since it was selected by the Commission of Presidential Debates to be the first a historically black college or university to host a presidential debate,” Fox News’ Bret Baier reported.

“So we are making this formal request for a Vice President of debate either July 23rd, August 13th, or after the RNC and DNC conventions, and just in the past few minutes as that has gone out, I have received this. From former President Trump and the campaign,” he added.

“On behalf of the future vice president of the United States, who I have not yet chosen, we hereby accept to the FOX vice presidential debate. Hopefully, at Virginia State University, the first historically black college or university to host a debate. Date to be determined. I urge Vice President Kamala Harris to agree to this, and make America Great Again,” he wrote.

Baier added, “That’s from a former president, his campaign. So we will see about the Biden-harris campaign response and where we go from here. Obviously, we have the CNN and ABC debate that has been agreed to already and we’ll see what else happens. This is a strange dynamic in getting these things locked down but we are doing it in short order.”
