Former President Donald Trump is likely to secure the 2024 GOP nomination, prompting speculation about his potential running mate.

Two prominent candidates are South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik.

There’s also discussion about the possibility of former First Lady Melania Trump advocating for Tucker Carlson as a running mate. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

While there are varying opinions about these choices, Trump has expressed positive views about both Noem and Carlson.

Noem said, “Well, there’s a lot of people they’re talking about for vice president… I have long supported President Trump; he had his priorities right when he was leading this country.”

“I think she’s fantastic,” said Trump.

“She’s been a great governor. She gave me a very full-throated endorsement—a beautiful endorsement, actually. It’s been a very good state for me, and certainly, she would be one of the people I would consider, or for something else, maybe. We have a lot of great people in the Republican Party,” he continued.

Rep. Stefanik wrote that Judge Engoron’s “bizarre behavior has no place in our judicial system, where Judge Engoron is not honoring the defendant’s rights to due process and a fair trial.”

“Here’s an interesting twist: Melania Trump is an advocate for picking Tucker Carlson, the booted Fox News star. She thinks Carlson would make a powerful onstage extension of her husband, a source close to Trump told us. The former first lady has made few campaign appearances this time around, but a Trump-Carlson ticket might encourage her to hit the trail,” according to Axios.

“However, many people close to Trump have dismissed the idea of Tucker Carlson because they believe he would never choose someone who could surpass him. And Trump’s staff is convinced (correctly) that Carlson can’t be controlled. But the two men talk a lot,” added the outlet.

New York Times columnist Maggie Haberman, said, “It’s a real thing that I am hearing as a possibility. The likelihood of it, I don’t know. I think there will be a pretty professional vetting process, honestly. I know that might sound unbelievable based on what we’ve seen from Trump historically, but Trump’s current political team is the best—at least as a non-incumbent—that he’s had, and there’s just a different level of control.”

“The risk with Tucker Carlson and Trump is that Tucker Carlson’s a very big star in his own right, and I’m not sure how Trump would contend with that,” she continued.

“I like Tucker a lot; I guess I would,” Trump admitted.

“I think I’d say I would because he’s got great common sense. You know, when they say that you guys are conservative, or I’m conservative — it’s not that we’re conservative; we have common sense. We want to have safe borders. We want to have a wall because walls work,” explained the former president.
