President Trump dropped a hint on Truth Social on Monday about the upcoming GOP primary debates and his potential vice-presidential candidate pick.
The president has not yet committed to attending the GOP primary debates. Still, he alluded to potentially picking a running mate from the field of Republican candidates who are poised to take the debate stage in Milwaukee in August.
“Let them debate so I can see who I MIGHT consider for Vice President!” he wrote.
Trump’s comments add to the speculation surrounding who he will choose as vice president on a 2024 ticket. As previously reported by RSBN, Trump has deftly avoided the question of exactly who he is eyeing to be his running mate, despite strong suggestions among conservatives that he may be looking at candidates like Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., or former Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.
On Saturday night, Trump asked a packed house of MAGA supporters in Erie, Pennsylvania, if he should attend the GOP primary debates. The crowd appeared split on their decision, prompting the president to quip that Republicans simply wanted to see him onstage for entertainment value.
The president has easily dominated the GOP playing field over the past several months, holding 30 and 45-point leads in most Republican primary polls nationwide and statewide.
In fact, a recent 2024 Republican primary delegate forecast from Race to the WH has predicted that Trump will walk away from the GOP primary with 2,149 delegates.
A Republican candidate needs only 1,234 delegates to win the nomination.
Trump’s initial primary challenger, Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., is now predicted to win only 231 delegates.
A mainstream poll from The New York Times and Siena also found that among Republicans, 54 percent of GOP voters were more likely to vote for Trump than DeSantis, who won 17 percent of support in their poll.
