Trump suggests an unexpected name for his next vice president.
In an unexpected move, President Donald Trump said that he is open to picking one of his top candidates to run with him for president in 2024.
During an interview on the radio with right commentator Glenn Beck on Tuesday, Trump seemed open to the idea of making his main opponent, Vivek Ramaswamy, his vice president.
“I think he’s great,” Trump said about the man. “Look, if someone says I’m the best president in a generation more than once, I have to like that person,” he said.
Trump also said that the other businessman was “very smart” and “had a lot of talent.”
“He’s not very old. He is very talented. “He’s a very, very smart person,” Trump said to Beck. “He’s got a lot of energy, and he could be something.”
In the past few months, the number of people who back Ramaswamy has grown quickly. First polling at 1% as a lesser-known candidate, he has now put himself in a good situation to be a strong contender. According to RSBN, the business owner has passed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in some polls and is now in second place.
Even though Trump said he liked Ramaswamy, he also said he was a little worried about his opponent’s ability to stir up trouble and that he was “getting a little bit controversial.”
“He’s getting a little more out there. Trump said, “He’s getting a little bit controversial.” “I’ve got to tell him to be a little bit careful. Some things you have to keep to yourself for a while, right?”
Ramaswamy, on the other hand, has said that he would turn down the chance to be vice president. He told Fox News that he would “drive change in the private sector sooner than becoming number two or three in the federal government.”
Still, Ramaswamy said that if he was chosen, he would pardon the 45th president despite the many charges against him.
