Is 2024 going to be the year of Trump’s triumphant return to politics after the previous presidential election was stolen out from under him?
All signs point to that being the case given the numerous poll numbers which clearly place Trump at the helm of the Republican Party.
While the Former President has yet to declare a 2024 presidential bid, the speculation on his running mate remains hot and candidates are lining up at Mar-a-Lago “begging” for consideration.
“They’re all begging me,” Trump said to an adviser.
Some potential vice presidential candidates include:
- former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
- Sens. Tim Scott, R-S.C., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.
- South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem
- Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds
- former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell
- former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows
Scott and Pompeo recently interacted with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, inside sources revealed to a reporter.
“It was a really warm interaction,” a Republican observer said of Scott’s visit.
“Scott was appropriately deferential without being gross, like some people are. What he said was thoughtful, and it was appreciated by the president. There was definitely chemistry there.”
After a falling out with Former VP Mike Pence, it appears America First elected officials are lining up for consideration as Trump’s right hand.
Pence was chosen in 2016 as a Rust Belt governor who could impact the evangelical conservative, but he and Trump had a falling out over allegations of election fraud and certification of the Electoral College vote amid contested results in key battleground states Arizona, Pennsylvania, George, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Nevada.
Trump had maintained supporters “will be very happy” with his 2024 decision, which is not expected until after the 2022 midterm elections next November.
“He’s not necessarily looking to balance the ticket geographically, but what he can do is pick to balance gender, race, ethnicity — a lot of different lanes there,” one pollster said about Trump’s VP decision.
Scott, who is running for Senate reelection in 2022, is already a well-developed fundraiser on his own, raising $8.4 million in the last quarter and having already visited the first presidential primary states Iowa and New Hampshire, according to the report.
“This is an audition, and Trump is paying attention,” Roger Stone revealed.
Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis was raised by Trump as a potential running mate in the past, too, along with Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez.
“Reynolds and Blackburn are definitely in the hunt,” a source added, noting they are both “tough as nails and conservative as hell.”
Jan. 6 remains a sore spot in Washington, D.C., so those that feed the Democrats’ narrative on that like former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley have to be viewed as longshots, if not written off completely.
Meanwhile, Grenell was a leader in the Trump campaign’s exposing of election irregularities in Nevada.
“Don’t sleep on Ric,” another adviser revealed.
“Trump loves him, and unlike Pompeo or anyone else, he has no interest in running for president. That’s a big issue for Trump.”
Whomever Trump decides to run alongside, they must denounce the widespread voter fraud ushered in by the Democrats in order to steal the election from Trump, who won in a clear landslide.
