Trump Floats the Idea of Ramaswamy as Running Mate

( – Could there be a Trump-Ramaswamy ticket down the road?

While former president Donald Trump continues to enjoy a very comfortable lead over his rivals based on the latest polling data, who he will pick as a prospective vice president – should he win the Republican primary, of course – is still anyone’s guess.

Trump himself has largely been mum about the whole thing, but there have been rumors going around, and surely there have been talks behind closed doors. One of the more prominent prospects would be Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has long been a Trump supporter, and her potential as a running mate has supposedly been “discussed repeatedly” as early as the beginning of last year.

However, Trump has seemingly broken his silence on who could be a potential running mate, and has floated the name of one of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, billionaire businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.

Following Ramaswamy’s boisterous participation at the Fox News Republican primary debate – which the former president skipped in lieu of granting a (pre-taped) interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlon which aired at the same time as the debate – Trump was all-praises for his fellow entrepreneur.

“I think he’s great,” the former commander-in-chief said of his rival, who during the debate, called Trump the “best president of the 21st century,” and said that he would bring the policies enacted by Trump during his presidency “to the next level.”

“Anybody that said I’m the best president in a generation,” Trump said, would immediately be in his good graces.

It makes sense for Trump to at least consider Ramaswamy as a possible vice president. The 38-year-old is poised to take over second place in the polls from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, whose numbers have been dropping. Ramaswamy’s popularity and visibility skyrocketed following the debate, where he got into colorful verbal exchanges with almost all the other candidates. In addition, Ramaswamy’s style and approach has largely been Trump-esque, and among all GOP presidential hopefuls, he is the most sympathetic towards the former chief executive. Ramaswamy has also repeatedly stated the should he win, he would issue a pardon for Trump on his first day of office.
