Trump Teases VP Pick from Capitol Hill, Eyes Youngkin and Others

Former President Donald Trump has given some hints about who he’s considering to be his running mate for the next election. He mentioned that the person works on Capitol Hill, and he plans to reveal his choice at the Republican National Convention in July. One name that Mr. Trump suggested could be a potential vice presidential pick is Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin.

During his visit to Capitol Hill, Mr. Trump also met with Senate and House Republicans. He mentioned that the person he’s considering for vice president may have been in the room during these meetings. This statement has led to speculation about who the potential candidates might be. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, who was previously thought to be on the shortlist, may not be in the running if the vice presidential candidate was indeed present at these meetings.

In addition to Gov. Youngkin, there are other potential choices from Congress, including Sens. J.D. Vance, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, and Tim Scott, as well as Reps. Elise Stefanik and Byron Donalds. It seems that Mr. Trump is exploring various options for his running mate.

During his visit to the Capitol, Mr. Trump also met with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to discuss their past differences. Despite disagreements in the past, Mr. McConnell has expressed his support for Mr. Trump as the GOP nominee. Mr. Trump emphasized the unity within the Republican Party after his meetings with House GOP members and Sen. McConnell.

The Republican National Convention is scheduled to take place in Wisconsin, where Mr. Trump is expected to announce his vice presidential pick. Democrats have criticized his recent comments about the host city, Milwaukee, and have pointed to his recent criminal conviction. Despite the controversies, it seems that Mr. Trump is moving forward with his plans for the upcoming election.
