Trump excited about potential collaboration with Democrat for 2024 bid: ‘He’s brilliant!’

‘He’s A Smart Guy’:‍ Trump Reacts to Possible ‌Team-Up⁢ With Democrat for 2024 Election Bid

Former President ⁢Donald Trump responded on Thursday to suggestions that he should⁣ choose long-shot Democratic⁤ presidential ⁢candidate Robert F. Kennedy ​Jr. as his running mate.

During a phone conversation with Newsmax host Rob Schmitt, Trump was asked about the​ potential impact of a Kennedy ​third-party run ‍on the election.

“I don’t know, but he’s got great support in⁢ the party. He’s ⁣got great support in the Democrat Party,” Trump replied.

Trump revealed that ‍he has seen polling indicating that ‌Kennedy has as much as 23 percent support among Democrats.

“That’s a ⁤lot of vote,” he said.

“A lot of people like you and him as a ‍combination, too,” Schmitt said.​ “I don’t think that can happen,​ but have you ever thought about ‌that?”

Schmitt then remarked, “Trump/Kennedy looks good on a bumper sticker.”

Trump responded,​ “No, but people have suggested it. I read the same things that you do.

“There are a lot of people suggesting it, there’s no question about that,” Trump added. “I’ve known him over the years. He’s a smart guy and well-intentioned. I really believe he’s very well-intentioned.”

Trump has recently praised‍ Kennedy, describing him as a‌ “common sense guy.”

Last month, radio⁤ host Howie Carr asked Trump about his thoughts on Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

“He’s a common sense guy and so am I,” Trump said. “He’s been very nice to me, I’ve actually had a very‌ nice relationship with him‍ over the years.”

“He’s doing ⁤really well, ⁣I saw a poll, he’s at 22. That’s pretty good! That’s pretty good, doing very well,” Trump added.

Among those who have suggested Kennedy as‍ a potential running mate for Trump is former⁤ White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

“If [Kari Lake is] not available to ‍be Trump’s VP ​… Bobby Kennedy would be an excellent choice for ‌Trump to consider,” Bannon said ‌in April.

Bannon mentioned that he had previously made this suggestion in a public ⁢speech and received positive feedback from conservatives.
