In a recent interview on “Meet the Press,” former President Donald Trump hinted at the possibility of choosing a female running mate for his potential 2024 presidential run. When asked if he was leaning toward selecting a woman, Trump expressed his fondness for the idea but emphasized the importance of picking the best candidate overall. He made it clear that his primary focus was on winning the election, rather than considering potential running mates at this time.
Speculation about Trump’s potential female running mate has been rampant, with several Republican women being discussed as possible choices. Among them are South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake. Noem’s recent endorsement of Trump at a rally in Rapid City has fueled speculation that she may be on his shortlist for the vice-presidential spot. Trump praised Noem’s leadership and expressed his consideration of her for the position or potentially for another role in his administration.
Kari Lake has also gained attention as a potential running mate, as she has been a frequent surrogate for Trump in his primary campaign. Additionally, former Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii hinted that she would be open to running for vice president with the eventual GOP nominee. Although Gabbard remains an independent, she has become a vocal critic of President Joe Biden and Democratic elites in recent years. Host Sean Hannity asked Gabbard if she would be willing to join the GOP ticket or a third-party option, to which she replied that she would consider any opportunity to serve her country and make a positive impact.
Trump’s remark about a potential female running mate has ignited rumors and speculation about who he may choose if he decides to run in 2024. It remains to be seen who will ultimately join him on the campaign trail, but his statement has certainly sparked excitement and intrigue among conservatives.
