The VP Short List

Please consider Trump Acknowledges Six Names On His VP Shortlist: 'All Solid'

Donald Trump on Tuesday acknowledged at least six names that he said are on his vice presidential shortlist.

During a Fox News town hall event in Greenville, South Carolina, host Laura Ingraham asked the former president about six potential running mates, including three of his erstwhile GOP primary rivals: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.

She also cited Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) and former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who left the party in 2022 after aligning herself increasingly with the political right.

"Are they all on your shortlist?" Ingraham asked.

"They are," Trump said. "Honestly all of those people are good. They're all good, they're all solid." He also singled out Scott, pointing out the senator in the audience, saying "a lot of people are talking about that gentleman right over there."
