Despite fighting off indictment after indictment, top GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to wage as much of a campaign as he can, given the circumstances.
And part of waging that campaign includes floating potential running mates, as it’s fairly clear that the former president won’t be running with his former running mate, Mike Pence, again.
Indeed, Pence is busily positioning himself as the “anti-Trump” of the GOP presidential campaign, so it’s no surprise that Trump has to look elsewhere for his potential vice president.
Many political commentators have speculated that Trump may select Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate, which is a natural fit in several ways.
On the other hand, Trump’s real edge has been his long-term existence as a political outsider, which is precisely why he appears to be drawn to other outsiders who would reinforce his pro-America message.
One such outsider includes none other than Vivek Ramaswamy, who took the nation by storm during the recent Fox News-sponsored GOP debates.
“He’s a very, very, very intelligent person. He’s got good energy, and he could be some form of something … ‘I tell you, I think he’d be very good,” Trump declared to Glenn Beck on a BlazeTV appearance, with regards to a potential vice presidential pick.
Indeed, Ramaswamy not only got the nation’s attention, but he also got Trump’s attention, underscoring one of the many ways in which the top GOP contender has approached the presidential race thus far.
Trump declined to participate in the debates, though he did opt to interview with Tucker Carlson on Twitter.
Hilariously, Trump’s interview with Carlson garnered more than 100M views in under four hours, whereas Fox News reported its total views at 13M.
While different metrics are used for determining viewership rates from digital to television mediums, it cannot be denied that Trump clearly retains mega influence that the Dems can’t stand.
On top of that, Trump’s absence from the GOP debate enabled the next strongest contender to shine, namely Ramaswamy.
Thus, Trump is now mulling a potential run with Ramaswamy, assuming that he becomes a bit less “controversial.”
“[Ramaswamy is] starting to get out there a little bit. He’s getting a little bit controversial, … I got to tell him, ‘Be a little bit careful. Some things you have to hold in just a little bit, right?’” Trump reflected.
That said, Trump and Ramaswamy most certainly see eye to eye on a number of matters, which include using the military to defend the American border against relentless drug cartels, as well as abolishing the ultra-woke Department of Education (DoE).
And, of course, cleaning house in the swamp, which was evident from Ramaswamy’s timely debate commentary.
“The real choice we face in this primary is this: Do you want a Super PAC puppet? Or do you want a patriot who speaks the truth? Do you want incremental reform, which is what you’re hearing about, or do you want revolution?” Ramaswamy bellowed.
Now that’s a revolution Patriots can get behind.
