President Trump is making hints at who will name as his VP when in the White House and one name recently made the top of the list.
President Trump said that he liked the idea of a female VP.
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.
In an interview with NBC News’ Kristen Welker, Trump suggested that he “liked the concept” of picking a woman as his running mate, according to a report about the interview. Trump is the leading candidate for the Republican nomination with an average of 56.6% support, according to RealClearPolitics.
“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.”
Trump also commented on several top Republican women elected officials across the country who have been the subject of speculation around the VP pick. He specifically discussed Republican Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota.
“She’s been a great governor. She gave me a very full-throated endorsement, a beautiful endorsement actually,” Trump said, referring to a recent rally in South Dakota where he was endorsed by Noem.
“And, you know, it’s been a very good state for me. And certainly, she’d be one of the people I’d consider, or for something else maybe. But we have a lot of people. We have a lot of great people in the Republican Party.”
Even far-left radicals like those at Politico are noticing as well as GOP pundits.
“She’s played her cards right,” said Dave Carney, a veteran Republican strategist based in New Hampshire. “She’s articulate. She has a lot of energy, and she might make an attractive ticket for the president.”
Time will tell.
