According to the latest polling, Donald Trump has a strong lead in the GOP primary race. Many Republican voters have supported the former president since 2020. And many more appear to have gotten behind him, in response to the Democrats’ four indictments against him.
Many have speculated on Trump’s chances in the general election, given the endless controversies and problems swirling around him. But there is a good chance the race will come down to Biden and Harris against Trump and the running mate of his choice. Now, Trump appears to be dropping a hint on who that person might be.
From Daily Caller:
Former President Donald Trump suggested that he may pick a woman as his vice presidential running mate if he wins the Republican nomination, according to a report by NBC News on Saturday…
“I like the concept, but we’re going to pick the best person. But I do like the concept, yes,” said Trump when asked if he was leaning towards choosing a woman. Trump also said that does not “think too much about it.”
The former president appeared to suggest that he was considering a woman to be his vice president running mate for 2024. When asked about if he’d select a woman, Trump said, “I like the concept.” He went on to say that he was going to pick the “best person.”
That response could have been Trump’s attempt at telegraphing that he’s already made a choice. Rumors have abounded that Trump was considering South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. Noem was a successful and popular governor of the state, who is hitting the two-term limit. Is it possible that she will make the jump to Washington if Trump asks her?
Trump claimed he hasn’t thought “too much” about his VP pick as of yet. It is possible he will be waiting to make the decision after the primaries are settled. Trump will have to fend off legal battles and criminal trials, just as the primaries heat up.
Democrat prosecutors have tried to schedule his trials on the week of Super Tuesday. Many Republicans have criticized Democrats for seemingly using these trials to influence the election. Some have even suggested Democrats want Trump nominated, assuming he’d lose again to Joe Biden.
