President Donald Trump has decided on a running mate. According to an interview with NBC News on Saturday, Trump knows who he wants to join him on the ticket. However, his selection of a running mate is still unknown to others. Trump told reporters he has made up his mind but has not shared the name of his choice with anyone else, including the person he wants to choose.

Several names have been included in the list of possible running mates for Trump, including Gov. Doug Burgum, Ben Carson, Rep. Elise Stefanik, Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.

It has been anticipated that Trump will make his choice public either shortly before or during the Republican National Convention which is scheduled to begin on July 15 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In his interview on Saturday, Trump confirmed he will be announcing his choice around the time of the convention.

On Thursday, June 27, Trump will face off with Biden in the first presidential debate of the campaign. The debate may prove to be a pivotal moment in the final five months leading up to the election, giving voters the opportunity to weigh the key policy differences between Biden and Trump on critical issues, including the border and the economy. Trump said he is looking forward to the debate but that voters should focus on what each candidate accomplished in office.

“The debate is not the big deal. The big deal is what have you done?” said Trump.

The debate may also offer voters some insight into who will be chosen as the vice presidential nominee. Trump said it was likely that his choice will be present at the debate on Thursday.

The debate will be hosted by CNN and take place in Atlanta at 9 p.m. ET.
