Trump’s statement about his vice-presidential choice!

Last week, while discussing his possible choice during an interview with Fox News, the former US President mentioned that Scott, Ramaswamy, Donalds, Noem, and Gabbard were all on his shortlist.

He emphasized that he would seek a running mate with “common sense because there are so many things happening in this country that don’t make sense.” He also mentioned, “They’re all good, they’re all solid,” according to reports by Fox News.

In another interview with Fox News, he dropped hints about his possible pick; he was quoted saying, “I speak to everybody. I called Tim Scott this week. A lot of people like Tim Scott. I called him, and I said: ‘You’re a much better candidate for me than you are for yourself.’”

The remark was also addressed by Scott, who mentioned that at the time, “the struggle of self-promotion is challenging, but what we do is focus on what America needs right now. At the moment, the best alternative is four more years of President Donald Trump,” according to Fox News.
