Trump's top vice presidential picks ranks

 August 10, 2023

A new report reveals 10 of the top vice presidential picks that former President Donald Trump may choose from if he becomes the Republican nominee.

The list, compiled by the Washington Examiner, offers insights into those considered among the strongest choices in a potential rematch against President Joe Biden.

Vivek Ramaswamy

"One of the few on this list Trump has explicitly mentioned as a possibility for vice president, Ramaswamy has already proved valuable to Trump as a loyal attack dog against DeSantis. In a general election, however, it is hard to see what Ramaswamy brings to the table," the report noted.

"Voters looking for private sector experience already have Trump, and while the Indian vote is fast growing, it is still nowhere near as big as the Hispanic or black vote," it continued.

Byron Donalds

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) recently pushed her fellow Florida Congressman Rep. Byron Donald as an option.

"On Sunday, Luna, who was elected to represent Florida's 13th District in the 2022 midterms with an endorsement from Trump, took to Twitter to suggest another Trump loyalist for the job: Byron Donalds," Newsweek reported.

"Donalds, a Florida Republican who was elected to represent the state's 19th District in 2020 has in the past described himself as a 'Trump-supporting, gun-owning, liberty-loving, pro-life, politically incorrect Black man,'" it added.

Top female choices

The list also includes several top female choices among Trump's running mate options.

"South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds are viewed as well-positioned to be vice presidential picks by sources who know them and outside GOP strategists," ABC News reported.

It added that "current presidential candidates like former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott are constantly beating back conjecture that they're actually seeking to set up camp at the Naval Observatory instead of at the White House."

No one knows for certain yet who Trump will choose as his next running mate, though it's clear that former Vice President Mike Pence is not under consideration. First, the former president will have to win the nomination while fighting multiple legal battles in his comeback bid for the White House.
