Trump teases 2024 VP pick during Hannity interview & confirms names on shortlist are ‘absolutely under consideration’

DONALD Trump teased his pick for vice president without confirming it in a Monday primetime interview.

Trump, who was interviewed by Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday, confirmed that he would announce his pick for VP in the next week or so.

In his first interview since his debate with Joe Biden, Donald Trump teased that his pick for vice president will be announced within the next two weeks

In his first television interview since his debate with Joe Biden in June, Trump spent most of the time attacking his successor before ending the roughly 20-minute interview with news on when he would announce his pick.

When asked about when the decision will be made, Trump said, “I think probably within the next week.”

“I’d love to do it during the convention,” he said, referring to the Republican National Convention starting July 15.

“It will make it even more exciting.”

Donald Trump’s Potential VP Picks

Donald Trump’s shortlist of possible Vice Presidents picks:

Vivek Ramaswamy: A former biotech entrepreneur, he has been very outspoken and active with his support for Trump, who previously said Ramaswamy “performed well” in the GOP primary debates.

Doug Burgum: A billionaire and two-term Governor of North Dakota who endorsed Trump and has since become a personal friend, frequenting television appearances, joining the former President at fundraisers, and even traveling to New York for Trump’s criminal trial.

JD Vance: Venture capitalist, U.S. Senator, and writer of the bestselling memoir Hillbilly Elegy, Vance is one of Trump’s most loyal political partners. On Wednesday, Vance admitted he would be “disappointed” if not picked by Trump

Marco Rubio: Florida Senator and former candidate for President. A native Spanish speaker and the son of Cuban immigrants, experts think this pick could possibly help Trump win over some Hispanic voters.

Tim Scott: The South Carolina Senator is the only Black Republican in the Senate. Scott worked closely together with Trump while in office on issues such as Trump’s tax cuts, opportunity zones, and criminal justice reform legislation.

Elise Stefanik: The only woman on Trump’s list, the congresswoman from New York was once an aide to former House Speaker Paul Ryan and also served in President George W. Bush’s administration. But during Trump’s four years in office, she became one of his most loyal and outspoken supporters. In 2022, Stefanik was the first member of Republican House leadership to endorse Trump’s campaign, and did so before he had announced he was running again.

Ben Carson: Carson, a former renowned neurosurgeon, served as the secretary of housing and urban development during Trump’s administration.

Byron Donalds: The 45-year-old Florida congressman has become one of Trump’s most prominent conservative Black supporters. Donald recently was caught on audio saying:
“You see, during Jim Crow, the Black family was together. During Jim Crow, more Black people were not just conservative — Black people always have been conservative-minded — but more Black people voted conservatively.”
