More Info on Trump’s Potential 2024 Running Mate Revealed

Who Will Be Trump’s Running Mate?

Former President Donald Trump is the clear front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination, according to most polls. This has fueled speculation about who he will choose as his running mate.

According to an article from the 1945 website, the three leading candidates for Trump’s vice president are all women. They include:

  • Kari Lake: A former news anchor in Arizona who narrowly lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs in the Arizona gubernatorial election in 2022. Lake is described as a unique creature, spewing the hard right rhetoric that MAGA Nation finds so endearing, while doing so with the glitz and polish of a seasoned TV reporter.
  • Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG): Known as a far-right Republican who has recently begun to gain more mainstream acceptance in the party. Greene is described as someone that Trump has his eye on as a prospective running mate with appeal in the newly-in-play Georgia.
  • South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem: When asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” if she would be Trump’s running mate replied, “I would be shocked if he asked.” However, Noem has remained loyal to Trump and is supporting his current run for president while maintaining her popularity as a conservative.

Trump campaign officials insist that the vice presidential search is not something they have been actively discussing. With the timing of the election, a vice president choice will probably not be made until the primaries are over. However, speculation has been ongoing for this choice for months, beginning shortly after Trump officially announced his candidacy.

For his part, Trump has downplayed the role that the vice presidential nominee plays in any election while also stressing the importance of the position once elected.

“There’s never been a vice president that’s done anything for the election. In other words, they vote for the one person,” Trump told NewsMax.

At the time of the 2016 election, Pence was considered an ideal running mate. “Pence, a devout Christian, was credible amongst evangelicals who had serious character questions about Trump, the hard-talking New Yorker who boasted of grabbing women however he pleased,” the 1945 article stated.

AP stated that the primary quality Trump is looking for in a vice president is loyalty, especially as he has clearly felt disloyalty both from Pence in 2020 and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis right now.

“I am very disappointed in him because I’m a loyal person, maybe to a fault. I’m a loyal person, and somebody gets you into office and then you’re telling people, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’ll run against the president,’” Trump said of DeSantis according to the Washington Examiner. “A lot of people said loyalty doesn’t mean anything. Well, to me, loyalty means a lot.”

While Biden is retaining Kamala Harris as his vice president, it seems very likely that Trump’s ticket would include a woman as well, and more than likely one of the three listed above.

Do you think Trump should pick a woman to be his VP?
