Donald Trump Gives His Shortlist of VP Candidates — And There’s a Few Surprises

Former President Donald Trump, at a Fox News townhall event hosted by Laura Ingraham, revealed his top Vice Presidential candidates that he might invite to join him as the eventual nominee on the Republican ticket.

“The audience has been asked who they think would be a good choice, and various names came up,” Laura Ingraham said.

“One of them was, of course, Vivek Ramaswamy.

“He’s made a big splash.

“Ron DeSantis, who’s making an appearance today in South Carolina.

“We just found out, obviously, Tim Scott. Byron Donalds.

“And a big presence here for Tulsi Gabbard. Very interesting.

“And Kristi Noem as well, I should say. Are they all on your shortlist?”

“They are,” Trump said.

“And when can we expect that you will announce your choice?” she added.

“The one thing that always surprises me is that the VP choice has absolutely no impact,” he continued.

“It’s whoever the president is. It just seems.

“I remember when Sarah Palin was actually picked and she did have a big up, and then they just went after her at a level that nobody’s seen.

“The Republicans themselves went after, what they did…”

“But you’ll be a one-term president because you’ve already served,” Ingraham interjected.

“So you can only serve for one term. Although they say he’ll never leave office, I assume he’ll never leave. There’ll never be another election again,” she sarcastically remarked.

“They say, don’t do it. He’ll never leave. He is never going… oh, these people, they are crazy,” Trump responded.

“So for that reason, it is important who you pick,” Ingraham clarified.

“So I think it’s very important,” he agreed.

“But look, first is that, as we said, it has to do with whoever is, it’s a very important position for that reason.

“You would like to get somebody that could help you from the voter standpoint.

“And honestly, all of those people are good.

“They’re all good, they’re all solid.”

“And I always say, I want people with common sense because there’s so many things happening in this country that don’t make sense.

“Who wants an open border?

“Who wants high interest rates?

“Who wants all electric vehicles?

“And they’re fine. But you want to have choice.

“You want to go to combustion, you want to go to any hybrid. I think the hybrid are much better from that standpoint.

“But we were talking about faucets, we’re talking about, we’re talking about so much.

“It’s all based on common sense.”

“We want a strong military. We want choice in education.

“We want to have things that can really make our country great. Again.

“What we are doing with the open border is a disaster.

“We are destroying our country. We’re going to change that fast and we’re going to get your energy prices down,” he stated.
