Donald Trump is moving toward winning the GOP presidential nomination. Many have wondered who he will pick as his 2024 running mate. Plenty of names have been floating around.
But just recently, he mentioned to Republican stars—and set the party on fire.
One of those names was Sen. Tim Scott. Scott had previously ran against Trump for the nomination, but the two have worked together in the past. Reporters caught up to the senator to ask what he thought about running with Trump. This is what he said.
From Fox News:
“The only thing I can tell you is that the one thing we need is four more years of President Donald Trump,” Scott told Fox News Digital on Monday.
“We were better off under Trump. In order for us to be successful, the one thing I can’t afford to do is take my eye off the ball. The eye on the ball means making sure that President Trump gets four more years,” he added.
Sen. Tim Scott gave a surprising response when asked what he thought about running with Donald Trump. The Republican said, “One thing we need is four more years of President Donald Trump.”
Scott went on to say he won’t take his “eye off the ball.” And that means “making sure that” Trump gets four more years in office.
This wasn’t a denial of the possibility that Scott will become Trump’s running mate. In fact, this response might hint at Scott’s future with the Trump campaign. When Sen. Scott ended his presidential campaign, he heartedly endorsed Trump.
Now, he is continuing to support the former president’s bid for a second term. Scott has already appeared at Trump events, speaking in support of his campaign. Could that turn into a pairing, going into the general election?
Other names are floating around as possible Trump VP picks. Trump has not given a definitive answer. The man who is masterful at building suspense will likely wait until he secures his nomination, just before the convention, to name his running mate.
Trump also mentioned Kristi Noem, the popular governor from North Dakota. She has been a strong Trump supporter as well. But to date, she has not mentioned anything about running with the former president.
