Now that Donald Trump is officially the presumptive Republican nominee, the question is, who will he run with? This morning, he promised to choose someone with the skill set needed to be president.
Trump spoke about his VP requirements while making the media rounds this morning, in interviews with Morning Joe, Good Morning America and Fox and Friends.
“I probably will go the political route,” he said on Morning Joe. “Somebody who can help me with legislation... Somebody who can help me get things passed and somebody who is friends with the senators and the congressmen.”
That person will A) definitely be a Republican, will B) “most likely” be an elected official and will C) “probably” be a person with political experience, he confirmed on Good Morning America. Which, sadly, rules out Ivanka for VP. Unless it doesn’t—who are you to try to pin Donald Trump down?
