GOP Lawmaker Opens Up On Becoming Trump’s 2024 VP

Daily Report May 06,2024

Over the weekend, a sitting U.S. senator opened up on being former President Donald Trump’s running mate in the 2024 elections.

With the race to become former President Donald Trump’s running mate hitting up, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) —one of the hot favorites to be Trump’s running mate—- joined ABC’s “This Week” to discuss the 2024 election,

Cotton appeared on the show with host Jonathan Karl, and both men discussed the ongoing campus protests across the U.S. Karl, however, moved on from the campus protesters topic and asked the Senator if he was open to becoming Trump’s running mate.

You made your views abundantly clear, but let me move on to 2024. You’ve been mentioned as a possible Trump running mate. Is that talk real?” Karl questioned.

The GOP lawmaker deflected the question and remained on the pro-Palestine topic.

“Well, first off, Jon, what we’re talking about is 2024. One of the many reasons why Donald Trump is going to win this election is you’ve got Democratic protesters out there putting a terrorist headdress on a statue of George Washington,” Cotton pushed back before going on to blast President Joe Biden’s late condemnation of the protesters. “You have patriots like these frat boys at UNC and around the country who are defending the American flag and Joe Biden refused for two weeks to come out and denounce it. That is the 2024 election.

However, Cotton addressed Karl’s question later on in the show but did not say if he is open to being Trump’s running mate.

“As far as your question is concerned, I know that you and everyone else loves to speculate —and it’s part of the game— about who is going to be vice president? Who is going to be in the cabinet? I don’t think any of these is particularly helpful to Donald Trump,” Cotton said. “I don’t think it is good to be out there campaigning and putting yourself out for the job. What Donald Trump is focussing on is winning this election. What I’m focused on is helping him win and making sure Republicans win the Congress. When he is ready to make his decision about the vice president, he will. Until then, anyone out there campaigning for the job or pushing for the job is not helpful to what we should all be focused on, which is winning the election.”
