This week, additional information regarding the potential campaign mate of former President Donald Trump in 2024 became available.
A 1945 report asserts that Trump’s choice for vice president in 2024 will likely “stun the world” and suggests three candidates: Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Arizona Republican Kari Lake, and South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem.
According to the report, “Lake certainly looked ascendant last fall when she was competing for Arizona’s governorship. She enjoyed Trump’s endorsement, and she enjoyed favorable coverage in conservative media. It’s not hard to understand why. Lake is a unique creature, spewing the hard right rhetoric that MAGA Nation finds so endearing while doing so with the glitz and polish of a seasoned TV reporter. She was delivering Trump’s message – but she was doing so without the spray tan and the guttural accent and the lack of eloquence. Rather, Lake delivered Trump’s message all pretty-like.”
Regarding Greene, the report said: “Trump loves her and she loves Trump. And impressively, MTG seems to be pivoting into a position of more mainstream acceptance with the GOP (as demonstrated through her support of Kevin McCarthy for speaker). The version of MTG that can appeal to both MAGA and the mainstream is a concerning premise, and someone that Trump has his eye on as a prospective running mate with appeal in the newly-in-play Georgia.”
The report then speculated on Noem, stating: “The governor of South Dakota is apparently on Trump’s shortlist. Noem said she would be shocked if Trump chose her and I think she means it; she is a long-shot pick. But she’s got a few of the things Trump guns for. One, Noem has been loyal to Trump, vowing to support the former president through the 2024 campaign. And Trump values loyalty above seemingly all else.”
"If for some reason we don't get a fair outcome in our election, I will run for Senate, most likely."

We need to remember exactly who the Democrats are.
They would have loved to put all of us in jail.
They want to fundamentally change America.

Last week, Trump’s campaign provided some intriguing details about his likely running mate.
According to Trump insiders who spoke with The Daily Caller, the 45th president will likely select a vice presidential candidate who is “loyal,” “charismatic,” and “ideologically aligned.”
“No candidates have publicly announced their intent to be Trump’s VP, but the former president has indicated that ‘a lot of people’ are ‘auditioning’ behind the scenes. Trump insiders told the Caller that although there haven’t been any formal discussions to narrow down the pool, there are a set of characteristics that will likely be considered,” the Daily Caller reported.

Even though they did not specifically identify anyone in the interview, the insiders provided information about the type of individual in which he would be interested.
In a recent Politico article, an unnamed Trump aide was quoted as saying that the 45th president will likely choose his running mate “from three general lanes of candidates: women, conservatives of color, or a trusted adviser.”
