Trump Drops Two Names in Hunt for the VP Appointment

Donald Trump is getting a lot of mileage over his VP announcement, and he does not appear to be ready to give up on that free press just yet. 

Trump dropped two big names during a recent interview with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News. 

It would appear that Trump has Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Governor Kristi Noem high atop his list of candidates.  

The Favorites 

When Trump was asked about a possible VP, he confirmed that he had not asked anyone, but he has a good idea of who it would be.  

Bartiromo asked Trump what his criteria are for a possible VP consideration. 

He replied, "Always, it's got to be who is going to be a good president. Obviously, you always have to think that because in case of emergency. Things happen, right?  

“No matter who you are, things happen. That's got to be No. 1."   

When he was asked specifically who he is considering, Trump said he has some ideas, but would not initially give a name.  

He then stated, "You know, I called [South Carolina Sen.] Tim Scott and people like Tim Scott, and I said you're a much better candidate for me than you are for yourself. 

"When I watched him, he was fine. He was good, but he was very low-key." 

On Tim Scott, he then added, "I watched him in the last week, defending me and sticking up for me and fighting for me. I said, 'Man, you're a much better person for me than you are for yourself.'" 

I know as far as the betting odds are concerned, Rep. Stefanik (R-N.Y.) is in the lead, followed closely by Noem, but I am putting my money on Tim Scott to get the nod.  

When you look at polling and who would bring the biggest benefit to the Trump campaign in a general election, it is, without a doubt, Tim Scott.  

Furthermore, as Trump stated, you have to consider how this person would be as a VP and I believe Scott is the one that most would be the most comfortable with right now.
