Trump made a shocking VP announcement that no one saw coming

Many Americans have been on the edge of their seats for months waiting to hear news about who Trump would pick for VP. But people were shocked when this news broke.

And Trump has made a VP announcement that no one saw coming.

On January 15, Ramaswamy withdrew from the Republican presidential contest and swiftly gave his support to Trump, who has since won the party’s nominee.

On February 20, the former president told FOX News’ Laura Ingraham during a town hall in Greenville, South Carolina, that Ramaswamy was on his shortlist of individuals to consider as running partners.

However, according to reports on Monday, Vivek Ramaswamy is no longer being considered by Donald Trump as his vice presidential candidate.

Instead, the former President informed his previous competitor that he would attempt to place him in a cabinet post.

Sources close to the situation told Bloomberg that Trump personally called Ramaswamy to break the news.

The secretary of the Department of Homeland Security is apparently one of the roles under consideration.

Representative Elise Stefanik, former US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and Doug Burgum, the governor of North Dakota, are among the people Trump and his team are considering for possible Cabinet roles.

According to Bloomberg “Trump is looking for a running mate who isn’t motivated by the limelight, but who will help give him a measurable edge in the race against President Joe Biden, according to those familiar with his thinking.”

“Trump has confided to close advisers and allies that none of the names circulating as potential running mates have impressed him much. His list of options has only grown longer, not shorter, according to people close to the former president.”

Bloomberg also reported that the former president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., is very interested in a significant role during any transitionary phases.

Many people are surprised and some are even disappointed that Vivek is no longer being considered as Trump’s VP.

Vivek seemed extremely popular in the polls, and many conservative Americans were rooting for him to become Trump’s VP pick.

However, Trump still obviously wants Vivek as a close ally and part of his Cabinet.

According to Trump, the “first quality” he is looking for in a running mate is the ability to be “a good president because if something should happen, you have to have somebody that’s going to be a great president.”

He did, however, acknowledge that he thought primary voters were more concerned with the name at the top of the ticket than with the running mate.

“The one thing that never ceases to amaze me is how little of an impact the vice president choice has,” Trump declared. “It just seems to be whoever the president is.”

Also, during a prior town hall in January in Des Moines, Iowa, Trump had hinted that he had already chosen his running partner.

Whoever Donald Trump chooses to pick as his running mate will definitely be a better pick than Kamala Harris.
