Trump Responds to Rumors of Him Picking Ivanka as Vice President￼
If former President Donald Trump regains office, the White House space for his daughter, Ivanka, will be a guest bedroom.
The 45th president squashed an alleged rumor he would pick his daughter to run as vice president on his presidential ticket.
Mr. Trump said he never heard of the rumor and, if it exists, there is no truth to it.
The Conservative Brief further reported:
He spoke to NDTV host Sreenivasan Jain this week about politics and the future of the nation when he was asked about an interesting choice for vice president.
“What about the media buzz that Ivanka might be your running mate? Is there any substance to that?” the host said.
“That, Ivanka?” the former president said. “That my daughter? I never thought of that one. I’ve never even heard of that one.”
“It’s in the media,” the host said.
“Oh that’s an interesting idea,” the former president said. “That one I have not heard of, but she’s a very capable person — that I can tell you. But, uh, no, I have not heard that.”
“Would you consider it?” the host said.
“No, I wouldn’t. Not my daughter,” the former president said as he laughed.
With speculation ripe that Trump will run for president in 2024, rumors are beginning to surface about who he may choose as his possible running mate.
Former Vice President Mike Pence is also a “no-go,” apparently.
During an interview with Peter Baker and Susan Glasser — who co-wrote the new book The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021 — Trump said will not pick Pence as his running mate if he runs for the presidency again.
“It would be totally inappropriate. Mike committed political suicide,” Trump said.
If Trump decides to run again, the media narrative thus far is that he will likely select a female running mate.
Back in late May, CNN published a report speculating that New York Rep. Elise Stefanik is likely a frontrunner.
