Trump Starts Teasing VP Picks

( – In a recent appearance on Fox News, former President Donald Trump was asked about his plans for a running mate, and although Trump did not answer directly he teased two names for a potential vice president.

On Sunday, February 4th, Trump was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo and outlined some of the achievements made during his first term in office, what his priorities are for a second term, and also slammed President Joe Biden and California Gov. Gavin Newsom. To top off the interview, though, Trump also dropped some hints about potential picks for vice president on his ticket.

When Bartiromo asked the former president who he had in mind for a running mate, Trump said he plans on holding off a while longer to announce that decision because his first obligation is to make sure the person he selects is capable of being a good president. Trump said this must be considered “in case of emergency” because “things happen.”

Bartiromo pressed Trump a little more, and the former president said he had many good people to pick from. Trump then dropped two names of people he thinks highly of: South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina. Previously, rumors were flying that Trump was eying Lee Zeldin, but he claims he’s looking at all of his prospects, and his preferred choice is not yet a final one.

Before going into vice president prospects, Trump also discussed some of the accomplishments from his first term, including changes to border security. He compared how secure the border was under his presidency to the current crisis under Biden, despite every effort by Democrats at the time to stop Trump. The former president also reminded viewers of deals he worked out with Mexico to increase security on their end.

Trump also touted defeating ISIS and the fact that no new wars began under his presidency. Since Biden took office, Russia invaded Ukraine, and now Israel is at war with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
