Tim Scott regarded as possible running mate for Trump

 February 15, 2024

Most polls suggest that former President Donald Trump is all but assured of securing the Republican Party's nomination.

That has led to growing speculation over who Trump will select as his running mate, with South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott being named as a possible choice. 

Scott calls on voters to fire Joe Biden at Trump rally this week

Interest in Scott's name grew after Fox News reported on Tuesday that he was scheduled to join Trump at a rally in South Carolina the following night.

An X account affiliated with the former president's campaign posted a video of Scott delivering a speech in which he called on Americans to reelect Trump.

"How many of y'all are ready to fire Joe Biden?" Scott asked as supporters cheered in response. "And if you fire Joe Biden, you fire Kamala Harris."

Scott won't comment on who Trump will pick

"The only thing worse than Joe Biden might be Kamala Harris. The border czar--wow," he continued before adding, "Four more years of Donald Trump means four years of low interest rates."

"Four more years of Donald Trump means law and order on in the streets of America," the Republican lawmaker pledged.

Fox News noted that Trump named Scott along with South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem as possible running mates when speaking with host Maria Bartiromo.

For his part, Scott had little say about the subject when asked by the network, stating, "The only thing I can tell you is that the one thing we need is four more years of President Donald Trump."

"We were better off under Trump. In order for us to be successful, the one thing I can't afford to do is take my eye off the ball. The eye on the ball means making sure that President Trump gets four more years," he stressed.

Trump rules out Nikki Haley as VP

One person whom Trump has categorically ruled out for the vice presidential spot is former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

According to The Post and Courier, Trump reiterated that message on Wednesday evening as he addressed rally goers.

"You’re never going to have her, and I don’t think anybody is very devastated," the GOP frontrunner dismissively said of Haley.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
