Trump’s Potential Picks
When asked about his potential running mate, President Trump mentioned several names, including Tim Scott and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. Praising Scott’s recent defense and support of his administration, Trump noted that Scott would make a better candidate for him than for himself.
