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.

Trump stated that it could be Scott, praising his receipt of Scott’s support prior to asserting that obtaining an endorsement was a prerequisite for nomination.
“I watched him in the last week defending me and sticking up for me and fighting for me. I said, man, I said, ‘you’re a much better person for me than you are for yourself’, because, for himself, he was low-key. For me, he’s been a real tiger. He’s been incredible. And others have too.” he continued.
“Kristi Noem has been incredible fighting for me. She said, I’d never run against him because I can’t beat him. That was a very nice thing to say.” Trump added.
