Most Americans expect Donald Trump to run for President again in 2024.
But no one really knows who Trump would choose as his running mate.
And now Mike Pence is worried about his political future after he heard what Donald Trump just said on Fox about running for President in 2024.
Donald Trump recently appeared on Fox Business Channel for an interview with host Maria Bartiromo where she pressed him on who he would choose as a running mate should he win the 2024 Republican nomination.
“Well, he’s a friend of mine,” began Trump when Bartiromo asked him whether or not he would select Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate.
“I endorsed Ron. And after I endorsed him, he took off like a rocket ship. He’s done a great job as Governor,” continued Trump.
In 2018, Trump endorsed DeSantis, who was lagging in the polls in a crowded Republican Primary.
However, after Trump’s endorsement, DeSantis soared to victory in the primary and went on to win the General Election for Governor.
And now, according to Trump, a lot of folks are talking about him picking DeSantis as his running mate since the two are such good friends.
“A lot of people like that – I’m just saying what I read and what you read, they love that ticket,” Trump added. “But certainly, Ron would be considered. He’s a great guy.”
But even though Pence just delivered a speech in South Carolina where he referred to the Trump administration as “we” and praised his friendship with Donald Trump, the one name that didn’t come up during the interview when discussing a running mate is Mike Pence.
So perhaps Donald Trump and Mike Pence aren’t as cordial as Pence claims.
On the other hand, many experts are expecting DeSantis to run on his own ticket in 2024 rather than vie for a Vice Presidential spot.
