Elise Stefanik Visit to Mar-a-Lago Fires Up VP Speculation

Donald Trump held a meeting at Mar-a-Lago this week with someone who is rumored to be on his VP shortlist.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) just about broke the internet on Monday and Tuesday after she made a social media post about her visit with the former president and 2024 leading candidate for the GOP.

Stefanik has long been rumored to be one of Trump’s favorites for the VP slot, and this meeting and her post have only further ignited that fire.

Will It Be Elise?

After her meeting, Stefanik posted, “Great meeting at Mar-a-Lago with my friend President Trump! The stakes could not be higher.”

That immediately started more speculation about her being Trump’s pick for VP.

Citizen Free Press then put up a poll about how people felt about Stefanik, and it was not exactly a warm welcome for the New York congresswoman.

I saw more than a few posts calling her out for voting in favor of the recent legislation that extended FISA in the NDAA as well as calling her out for being more moderate than conservative.

Trump, however, likes to surround himself with people who will show him unwavering loyalty, and Stefanik has defended him at every step, which is why many believe that she will be his VP choice.

I don’t believe she has a big enough profile to help Trump and think she brings very little to the table, but Trump always talks highly of her.

Based on Trump’s polling numbers, his best bet would be Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) or Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL).

Polling numbers for Trump go through the roof among black voters if Trump has a black VP, and I think Scott would provide a nice balance to Trump, and he would surely draw in more minority voters.

We seriously have to look at who we are all more comfortable taking over the White House if the top candidate for some reason cannot complete the term, and for my money, of all the VP possibilities that Trump is reportedly considering, Scott would be my top pick.
