On Monday, Trump hinted on Truth Social about the upcoming GOP primary debates and his likely vice presidential candidate selection.
The president has yet to commit to attending the Republican primary debates. Nonetheless, he hinted at maybe selecting a running mate from the pool of Republican candidates set to debate in Milwaukee in August.
“Let them debate so I can see who I MIGHT consider for Vice President!” he wrote.
Trump’s remarks fuel conjecture about who he may select as his running mate for president in 2024. As previously reported by RSBN, Trump has deftly evaded the topic of who he is considering as his running mate, despite considerable speculation among conservatives that he is considering candidates such as Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., or former Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.
Trump asked a packed assembly of MAGA fans in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Saturday night if he should attend the GOP primary debates. The audience appeared divided on their decision, prompting the president to remark that Republicans were only interested in seeing him onstage for entertainment purposes.
Over the last few months, the president has handily trounced the Republican field, with 30- to 45-point advantages in most Republican primary polls worldwide and statewide.
In fact, according to a recent 2024 Republican primary delegate estimate by Race to the WH, Trump will win the GOP primary with 2,149 delegates.
To secure the nomination, a Republican candidate just needs 1,234 delegates.
Trump’s initial primary opponent, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, is expected to capture only 231 delegates.
A mainstream poll conducted by The New York Times and Siena revealed that among Republicans, 54 percent were more likely to vote for Trump than DeSantis, who had 17 percent support in their poll.
