Trump Jr. Reveals Ex-Fox Host Will Be Vice President?

It has been noted that Donald Trump Jr. weighed in on who he would like his father to choose as his VP on Friday and told The Post he would like to see someone like media personality Tucker Carlson, but that the decision has a “long way to go.”



“There would be a couple [of candidates] that I would love to see. If only just for the vice presidential debate. Like I’d love to see a Tucker Carlson go up against Kamala Harris. Just that would be fun,” Trump Jr. told reporters at the former president’s HQ in South Carolina.

About Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who has been widely speculated as a potential VP, Trump Jr. said “Tim is a good friend of mine. Tim is a great guy.”

The leading candidate of the GOP, Donald Trump, has not yet disclosed who he is considering as his running mate, and has not announced when he will make his decision. During a Fox News town hall on Tuesday, Trump praised all of the potential candidates presented to him, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), biotech mogul Vivek Ramaswamy, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), and Scott. The former president also mentioned that he would consider Tucker as his vice president.

“I like Tucker a lot. I guess I would,” Trump said on “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show” in November. “I think I’d say I would, because he’s got great common sense.”

Tucker has thrown cold water on the speculation in the past, telling Megyn Kelly that despite being a “total sucker for Trump,” he hasn’t “led a life that prepares a person for politics.”

I don’t think I have any, like, horrible skeletons or anything. It’s not that. It’s just that that’s not how my brain works. I’ve never done anything like that. I can’t imagine spending time with politicians,” Tucker told Kelly on her podcast.

Trump Jr. said his father had “shared some of those as potentials” already and that “there’s probably a couple that he didn’t mention that are potentials.”

He said he hasn’t “had a conversation with him in recent times,” but spoke about it “generally around the holidays” where “some ideas” were shared.
