Former President Trump may consider Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis as a running mate if he decides to run in 2024 presidential election, according to a new Fox Business interview.
When asked if he would be open to DeSantis as a running mate, Trump responded, “Sure I would, but there are numerous people that are great. I would certainly consider Ron.”
Trump added, “I was the first to endorse him when he came out as a congressman. A lot of people didn’t know and my endorsement helped him tremendously and I know him very well. He’s a great guy.”
The former president has yet to announce whether he will run again in 2024. However, many are already looking forward to his potential running mate.
Former Vice President Mike Pence is still said to be on good terms with Trump, but their disagreements following the 2020 election may lead to Trump making a new choice if he becomes the Republican candidate again.
DeSantis has stood out during the pandemic for opposing Washington’s liberal policies and lockdown attitude. Florida has led the nation economically during the past year, while many blue states lost residents and income.
