Reportedly, Donald Trump is considering a someone without any political experience for Vice President.
The choice is not someone Republicans would expect.
Donald Trump may choose this famous person as his VP that would surprise everyone.
Former President Donald Trump could pick Tucker Carlson as his running mate for the 2024 election according to a New York Times reporter on Monday.
Political correspondent Maggie Haberman was asked by podcast host Jamie Weinstein during an interview on the Dispatch podcast about the rumors that Trump was considering Tucker Carlson to be his running mate.
“It’s a real thing that I am hearing as a possibility,” Haberman responded.
“The likelihood of it, I don’t know. I think there will be a pretty professionalized vetting process, honestly. I know that might sound unbelievable based on what we’ve seen from Trump historically, but Trump’s current political team is the best — at least as a non-incumbent — that he’s had, and there’s just a different level of control.”
“The risk with Tucker Carlson and Trump is that Tucker Carlson’s a very big star in his own right, and I’m not sure how Trump would contend with that,” Haberman said.
Trump himself said earlier this month he’d consider Carlson as his running mate if he wins the Republican nomination.
“I like Tucker a lot, I guess I would,” the former president said to radio host Clay Travis, who question Trump on the topic during The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.
“I think I’d say I would because he’s got great common sense.”
Trump was also asked whether he might pick a Vice President from the current field of Republican presidential candidates.
“Just wondering how you think your competitors are going to do tonight on the stage against each other?” Travis asked. “Do you have any predictions you would share with us? And also, assuming you win, would you consider any of the people debating tonight as a possible VP candidate?”
“It’s possible,” Trump said.
“Look, some of them I like a lot. Some of them are running – I happen to have a couple that I am very friendly with. Some say I was the best president in a generation.”
Back in August, conservative talk show host Glenn Beck asked Trump what he thought of a possible “Vice President Ramaswamy.”
“Well, I think he’s great. Look, anybody that says I’m the best president in a generation … I have to like a guy like that, I can’t get upset with him,” Trump said.
“But he’s a smart guy. He’s a young guy. He’s got a lot of talent. He’s a very, very intelligent person. He’s got good energy. He could be some form of something, I tell ya. I think he’d be very good. I think he’s very good, I think he’s really distinguished himself.”
