Trump Drops “Yuge” VP Hint

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.
