Former President Donald Trump revealed that he is “100% considering” running for president in 2024. As current front-runner in the Republican Party it only makes sense for his name to be at the top of the ticket.
“I ran twice, and the second time I got 12 million more votes than the first time,” Trump said in a interview.
However, given the current schism in the GOP between hard-line RINO’s of Party’s past and the younger, more vibrant America-First gang, it’s highly doubtful that Trump would choose Pence as his running mate a second time.
Speaking in an interview on Fox News, Trump divulged his plan to pick a different Vice President.

When asked who he would pick for his potential V.P., the reporter heavily suggesting Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis, the Former President had this to say:
“I endorsed Ron, and after I endorsed him, he took off like a rocket ship. “He’s done a great job as governor. They like that. … I’m just saying what I read and you read. They love that ticket.”
In the likely event of 2024 run, Trump wouldn’t veer to far from the policies he’s adapted all along: strong on Second Amendment, tough on the border, lower taxes for working Americans, energy independence, and America-First foreign policy.
During the interview Trump lamented the ongoing crisis on the border caused by the Biden administration.
“The border has to be brought back to where I had it,” he said.
Trump said in an interview on Wednesday that if were to run, he would likely to do so following the results of the 2020 midterm elections.
DeSantis has also fueled speculation that he may be considering a presidential run of his own. The Florida governor is rumored to be visiting the battleground state of Pennsylvania on May 20 to speak to the Allegheny County Republican Party.
