Trump Responds When Asked If He’d Consider DeSantis as His Running Mate
The governor of his home state, Ron DeSantis, is currently Donald Trump’s closest rival in the increasing field of Republican presidential candidates.
According to some political analysts, Trump is likely to easily win the GOP nomination in 2024, which might put him in a rematch with President Joseph Biden. As a result, the GOP primaries are actually about who will come in second place.
DeSantis currently seems to be cruising into the No. 2 place, but a lot might change before Republican voters begin casting their primary ballots.
Hence, when all the primary dust has settled, it only makes sense to think that a Trump-DeSantis ticket is at least plausible.

If Trump and DeSantis were to run for president as Florida residents, Florida voters in the Electoral College would not be permitted to support them.
According to History, in a situation like this, Florida’s Electoral College votes would be in jeopardy since Article II of the Constitution compels electors to vote for one candidate who is not from their home state.
According to earlier reports, Trump is considering picking a female running mate, possibly one who isn’t necessarily a Republican.
Fox News commentator Greg Gutfeld made a startling recommendation in early May: independent former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
“What I like about Tulsi is that you couldn’t foresee a third opinion if she gave you two opinions. She embodies who a person is. Like,
