According to a recent report, former first lady Melania Trump wants Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson as her husband's VP.
The former first lady's comments, first reported by Axios, came as speculation bout who Former President Donald Trump would choose to co-headline his presidential bid has reached a fever pitch.
Despite his campaign in the 2024 Republican primary, the former president has declined to be part of the Republican debates.
This is owing in part to being both a formidable opponent to the other candidates, and already holding the top spot in the minds of Republican voters, according to extensive polling.
In his September remarks, Trump raised the prospect of choosing a female candidate for vice president.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) is reportedly being considered by Trump insiders as a potential running mate for the 2024 presidential election, according to the Daily Caller.
According to Carlson, he shifted his support to the former president after the FBI stormed Mar-a-Lago, according to The Daily Caller.
Carlson warned Roseanne Barr, an actress and comedian, that the Trump administration is being intentionally undermined by the Justice Department, and he threatened to spearhead demonstrations in the event that the department found him guilty on any charge.
“So it’s bigger than Trump. It’s bigger than Biden. It’s a question of ‘Do you want to live in a free country with a functioning justice system?’ So I’m voting for Trump, and if they convict him, I will send him the max donations and I will lead protests. That’s how I feel,” Carlson said during a Nov. 30 interview.
Projections about the potential gain that Daily Caller co-founder Carlson would doubtless be due to his popularity on Fox News and his departure from the network.
Trump spoke to Carlson in a widely viewed interview during one of the first Republican candidate debates with a viewership that ranked well above the viewership of the debate itself.
Trump freely discusses potential running mates with friends. As far as these candidates are concerned, the former president seems to be opting for someone who believes the 2020 election was rigged and that former Vice President Mike Pence caved in and certified it.
Names like Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio), the "Hillbilly Elegy" author and MAGA favorite, as well as Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R), and former Arizona gubernatorial candidate and current Republican Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake. The former president is also reportedly considering South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) as a potential running mate.
At least one black Republican in Congress has made the list with rumors that Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), is under consideration. This rumor has been propelled by the news that Donald accompanied Trump on campaign trips and aspires to be named vice president.
