Former President Donald Trump made waves this week when he hinted at the possibility of adding former Fox News host Tucker Carlson to his 2024 presidential ticket as vice president. In an interview on “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show,” Trump was asked if he would consider Carlson for the role. Trump responded with enthusiasm, stating that he liked Tucker a lot and would seriously consider him.

During the interview, Trump also praised Carlson’s common sense and conservative views. He highlighted their successful interview on social media during the first Republican primary debate on Fox News, which he claimed reached over 300 million people and broke records.
While Trump expressed his interest in having Carlson as his running mate, it remains uncertain whether Carlson would actually accept the offer. In a previous interview on the “Ruthless” podcast, Carlson had dismissed the idea of running for office, suggesting that it would not improve his life and expressing concerns about the impact on his children.
This potential pairing of Trump and Carlson on the 2024 presidential ticket would certainly shake up the political landscape. As a conservative news writer, it’s exciting to see two influential figures within the Republican party potentially join forces. Their shared viewpoints on issues like border security and the effectiveness of walls could resonate strongly with conservative voters. It will be interesting to see how this develops and whether Carlson ultimately decides to throw his hat in the ring.
