Trump Drops “Yuge” VP Hint

national-harbor-md-usa-february-241

Former President Trump has teased that he has “sort of a pretty good idea” of who his vice presidential running mate will be but plans to announce his selection during this summer’s Republican National Convention.

In a recent interview at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., Trump shared his thoughts following meetings with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. When asked if his potential running mate was present at any of these meetings, Trump responded, “Probably. I don’t want to go into details, but I think the announcement will probably happen during the convention. We have some very good people in mind.”

The Republican National Convention will be held from July 15-18 in Milwaukee. Among the names speculated to be on Trump’s shortlist is Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin. Trump mentioned, “Yes, I think I could consider that. He would be on that list.”

During the interview, Trump was also asked about his thoughts on President Biden as a father following Hunter Biden’s conviction on federal gun charges. Trump acknowledged the difficulty of the situation, saying, “It’s a very serious thing. I understand that whole subject pretty well because I’ve had it with people who have it in their family. It’s a very tough thing, whether it’s alcohol or drugs. It’s a tough moment for any family involved in that.”

Hunter Biden was recently convicted of three felony charges related to the purchase of a revolver in 2018 when he lied on a federal gun-purchase form by claiming he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs. President Biden has stated that he will not use his presidential powers to appeal his son’s conviction, emphasizing his pride in Hunter’s recovery journey.

Later in the interview, Trump addressed former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s potential Senate run. Hogan, a Republican who did not endorse Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections and has endorsed Nikki Haley over Trump, is someone Trump would like to see win. “Yeah, I’d like to see him win,” Trump said. “I think he has a good chance to win.”

As the anticipation builds, all eyes will be on the Republican National Convention this summer for the much-awaited announcement of Trump’s vice presidential pick.

Trump Veepstakes Heats Up: Announcement In Next Week

national-harbor-md-usa-february-24

As the Republican National Convention approaches in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the excitement among conservatives is palpable. The burning question on everyone’s mind is: Who will former President Trump choose as his running mate? With less than a week to go, the speculation is reaching a fever pitch.

Trump himself has been dropping hints, fueling the curiosity even further. During an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” he expressed a desire to make the announcement during the convention. “I’d love to do it during the convention,” he said. However, he noted that “my people say that’s a little complicated.”

In a recent interview, Trump added, “Probably a little before the convention, but not much. It could even be during the convention that we’d do it.” This has only added to the anticipation, leaving everyone guessing when the big reveal will happen.

The names being floated are intriguing. Fox News host Sean Hannity mentioned four potential candidates: Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, JD Vance of Ohio, Tim Scott of South Carolina, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum. Trump confirmed that these individuals are indeed under consideration, stating, “The names that you mentioned, absolutely they’re under consideration. We have a lot of good people. As they call it, we have a great bench in the Republican Party.”

Despite these hints, Trump remains noncommittal about his final choice. “I haven’t made a final decision, but I have some ideas as to where we’re going,” he emphasized.

This is a shift from what Trump said last month in Philadelphia, where he indicated that he had already decided on his running mate but hadn’t informed the individual yet. “In my mind, yeah,” he told NBC News when asked if he had chosen his running mate. When pressed if the person knew, he replied, “No, nobody knows.”

Trump has clearly been enjoying the speculation and intrigue surrounding his decision. He has repeatedly hinted that his running mate will be “a person that can do a fantastic job as president” and “somebody that helps you get elected, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

Multiple sources within Trump’s political circle have speculated about the frontrunners, with Burgum, Vance, and Rubio frequently mentioned. Rubio, for instance, will be joining Trump at a campaign rally at Trump’s Doral golf club in Miami, Florida, on Tuesday evening. Meanwhile, Trump will hold a rally near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, close to the Ohio border. It’s still uncertain if Vance will join him there.

Trump’s campaign continues to keep a tight lid on the decision, pushing back against the rampant speculation. “Anyone claiming to know who or when President Trump will choose his VP is lying, unless the person is named Donald J. Trump,” stated Trump campaign senior adviser Brian Hughes.

The anticipation is at an all-time high, and conservatives across the nation are eagerly awaiting Trump’s decision. One thing is certain: whoever he picks will play a crucial role in the 2024 election and beyond.

Trump Narrows Down VP Field to 3 Contenders

Trump-Narrows-Down-VP-Field

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The public eagerly anticipates the announcement of former President Donald Trump’s choice for his running mate in the upcoming presidential election.

With speculation among Democrats about replacing President Joe Biden, this announcement is bound to generate a lot of attention.

According to reports from The Washington Post, Team Trump has reduced the number of potential vice presidential candidates to only three. The announcement is expected to be made by July 15, the first day of the Republican National Convention.

“Trump has not communicated his choice, the people familiar with the situation said, but discussions inside the campaign have narrowed in on Sens. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum is also in the mix.

Trump, who has a habit of changing his mind, was privately discussing other names as recently as the last week, according to the people with knowledge of the situation.

Like others interviewed for this story, the people spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private talks.

Trump has two rallies scheduled this upcoming week: One on Tuesday in Miami, Florida, and the other on Saturday in Butler, Pennsylvania. Trump has publicly said he would name his vice-presidential pick at the convention.

The nomination is expected to take place on July 15 under convention protocol, according to two of the people with knowledge of the situation. The vice-presidential pick is slated to speak on Wednesday, July 17.

The former president’s running mate choice is one of the most closely watched decisions of his campaign. Trump said in June that he had decided on his vice-presidential pick but hadn’t told the person yet.”
Selecting a running mate “is a very personal thing for the president,” according to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who also reiterated that the vice president’s job is “to basically support the president’s policies and be an advocate for what he wants” in an interview with The Post.

Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Byron Donalds (R-FL), Sens. Tim Scott (R-SC), Tom Cotton (R-AK), and others were previously being considered by Team Trump.

The Republican Party may suffer significantly from this choice because Trump can only serve one more term in office if he prevails in November.

The decision will have an effect beyond winning the next election, as his choice may influence who assumes the role of GOP leadership moving forward.

Each of the three choices has already been the subject of much conjecture.
“Doug Burgum is the choice if you’re worried about governing,” said Brad Todd, a Republican strategist. “J.D. Vance is the candidate if you think you’re going to win no matter what and you’re trying to shape the party going forward. Marco Rubio is the candidate you pick if you’re worried about winning the election.”

This information is created as President Biden, and the aftermath of the presidential debate dominate the news cycle. Democrats are currently debating the following steps and considering possibly removing Biden.

According to surveys, the president’s chances of winning a second term have significantly decreased due to his performance.
Since the debate, Trump’s advantage over the president has widened significantly, and his selection of vice president might make the difference even more significant.

This is especially true if Biden’s staff cannot devise a message plan to comfort voters about the candidate’s age and cognitive ability.

Who do you think Trump will choose as his VP?

5 Worst Polls Democrats FEAR This July 4th Holiday

5-Worst-Polls-Democrats-FEAR

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Several independent surveys indicate that former President Donald Trump’s momentum on July 4 may be the highest during the 2024 cycle.

Before President Joe Biden’s appalling performance in the debate last week, numerous polls showed Trump leading Biden in practically every category, including national, swing state, and significant issue surveys.

According to post-debate polling, Trump is gaining momentum.
Still, the Biden campaign disagrees with the statistics. An internal survey has recently circulated that indicates Biden’s position in the race is unaltered.

The accuracy of Biden’s internal polling is under question.
After the first presidential debate on June 30, Nate Silver released his election model estimate, which shows that Trump has a six-point advantage over Biden in terms of likely winning the popular vote in November.

George W. Bush, who received 50.73 percent of the vote in 2004, was the last Republican to win the popular vote.

For the first time, Silver’s election model estimate on June 30 indicated that Trump would defeat Biden in the popular vote. The forecast said that one day before the debate, Trump was behind by two points.

More significantly, there is a 68.4% chance that Trump will prevail in the electoral college, which will determine the election’s winner. Biden’s reelection is just 31% possible.

The top five post-debate polls that seem to support Silver’s interpretation are shown below:

One: A Suffolk University survey indicates that 41% of Democratic voters want President Joe Biden to withdraw from the 2024 contest, while 51% prefer him to stay on the ticket.

Two: According to a YouGov survey, 72% of voters believe Biden lacks the mental and cognitive capacity to be president, and another 72% of people want him to withdraw from the contest.

Three: According to a New York Times/Siena survey, Trump leads Biden by six points, up three points from the previous week and the biggest lead the Times has seen since 2015.

Four: A Wall Street Journal poll finds Trump leading Biden by six points, his biggest advantage in Journal polling ever.

Five: A leaked internal Open Labs poll states that “votes for Biden in the two-way horse race declined by -0.8pp,” and “votes for Trump in the multi-way also declined by -0.8pp.”

The email states that the statistics show “the largest single-week drop since horse race tracking began in late 2021.”

Honorable Mention: According to a CNN survey, Trump now leads Biden 49 to 43 percent.
