Many Trump supporters are glad the Constitution will prevent this person from being Vice President

Donald Trump has his work cut out for himself in picking a running mate.

While many of the people on the short list are exciting to the MAGA crowd, some names make them cringe.

Many were concerned that RINO Republicans would make the list, but the U.S. Constitution won’t allow it to happen.

Trump responds directly to questions about his VP contenders

Donald Trump recently used a rare day off from his rigged political Manhattan show trial to campaign in the critical swing state of Wisconsin.

While there, Trump made the rounds of the local media since these interviews with local news stations give a candidate the chance to reach a broad audience of swing voters.

That’s because the 6PM and 11PM local newscasts are almost always the highest-rated shows on local broadcast affiliates.

FOX6’s Jason Calvi used his wide-ranging interview with the former President to try and get Donald Trump to spill the beans on who he plans to pick as his 2024 running mate.

“Last question on the VP shortlist. You got a big retreat this week, and you’re going to have a lot of the leading candidates for that shortlist. Who’s on the shortlist? Doug Burgum, Tulsi Gabbard, who are you looking at?” Calvi asked before rattling off some more rumored names, who are supposedly on Trump’s shortlist.

But, like he has done in the past, Trump kept his cards close to the vest.

“I mean, all good names. We were speaking before, all good names,” Trump responded.

“Marco Rubio?” Calvi tried again.

“Marco’s great. I think he’s been great,” Trump answered.

“He’s one of your tops?” Calvi followed up.

Trump reveals timeline for selecting running mate

While Trump did not announce his pick, or even allude to whom it may be, he did throw Calvi a bone and revealed that his Vice-Presidential announcement would come before the July National Convention.

“Well, he’s one of the people I respect. I can tell you Marco’s been great. But, so many people ask that question, usually it’s done right around the convention,” Trump added.

“So, it’s going to be done, and maybe it’s going to be done before you, because here we are in Wisconsin. We’ll be making that decision, I think, closer to Wisconsin-time, if you want to know the truth. It’s very early right now,” Trump concluded.

Almost everyone wants to be Donald Trump’s running mate this year.

Polls are now consistently showing Donald Trump is the clear favorite to win the election in November.

This would be Trump’s second term, which means whoever he picks only has to wait four years to run for President.

And by virtue of serving as Trump’s number two, it gives whoever he picks a huge leg up on any competition in 2028.

Conservative Trump supporters are hoping Rubio isn’t the pick.

Rubio supports amnesty for illegals, red flag gun confiscation laws, and agrees with Liz Cheney on foreign policy.

Fortunately for those who oppose a Rubio pick, the 12th Amendment could solve that problem.

The Constitution says if the President and Vice President come from the same state, then that state’s Electoral College votes won’t count.

No Republican can win the Presidency without Florida’s 29 Electoral College votes.

That electoral reality almost certainly precludes Rubio from being Trump’s running mate.

It seems the list just got shorter.
