In a new interview conducted over the weekend, former President Donald Trump provided the names of two individuals in response to a question regarding his vice presidential running mate.
When asked who he was contemplating, Trump mentioned South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) in a Sunday interview with Maria Bartiromo.
“Well, I have a lot of good people. We have a lot of really good people. I have a lot of good ideas, but I haven’t — and there’s no reason to do that quickly.” Trump said.
He stated that he would delay making a decision for “a while,” adding that a candidate who could perform admirably as president is his highest priority in a vice president.
“I speak to everybody. I called Tim Scott … and I said, ‘you’re a much better candidate for me than you are for yourself.’ When I watched Tim, he was fine, he was good, but he was very low-key, et cetera, et cetera.” Trump stated.
