Trump Shrugs Off VP Impact: A Gnat at the Election Picnic

Former president Donald Trump recently expressed his thoughts on the upcoming 2024 presidential election, and he made it crystal clear that when it comes to the vice president pick, it’s no big deal. In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News at Mar-a-Lago, Trump scoffed at the idea that his running mate would have any significant impact on the election’s outcome. According to Trump, history proves that vice presidents have about as much influence as a gnat at a picnic. He argued that voters are ultimately casting their ballots for the president, not the VP, so who he selects as his running mate won’t do diddly squat to sway the election in one direction or another.

Trump didn’t spill the tea on who his potential VP pick might be, and he didn’t give away any clues about when he’d make his decision. But he did throw some shade at the idea that former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley could help him appeal to women and moderate voters. The establishment donor types are all about pushing Haley as the VP pick, but Trump seems to be rolling his eyes at their suggestion. He’s all about trusty ol’ gut feelings and winning, because according to him, if he doesn’t win, then America might as well pack its bags and call it a day.

And speaking of the GOP’s deep bench, Trump has a whole roster of potential VP candidates to choose from. The list includes big names like South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), to name just a few. Trump’s chatter about this long list of possibilities, combined with his recent Twitter feud with Haley, isn’t exactly setting the stage for her to slide into the VP seat any time soon.

With the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary right around the corner, Trump’s got a commanding lead in the polls, so it’s possible that he could lock down the nomination in no time. And once that’s squared away, you can bet your bottom dollar that the buzz about his VP pick will be louder than a truck revving its engine at a red light. But if the nomination hustle drags out, then we might be in for a longer, more dramatic narrative. It’s like waiting in line at the DMV—except this time, it’s the fate of the country hanging in the balance.
