President Trump was recently asked a question that seemed to catch even him off guard.
Either that or he’s an excellent poker player, which we know is also true.
The question was whether he was considering his daughter, Ivanka Trump, as Vice President when he’s back in office.
He was speaking to NDTV host Sreenivasan Jain who asked him the question…
“What about the media buzz that Ivanka might be your running mate? Is there any substance to that?” the host said.
“That, Ivanka?” the former president said. “That my daughter? I never thought of that one. I’ve never even heard of that one.”
“It’s in the media,” the host said.
“Oh that’s an interesting idea,” the former president said. “That one I have not heard of, but she’s a very capable person — that I can tell you. But, uh, no, I have not heard that.”
“Would you consider it?” the host said.
“No, I wouldn’t. Not my daughter,” the former president said as he laughed.

While many news outlets are reporting this story as new and current, I am questioning whether it’s been repackaged from 2016.
Something about it feels old to me, but many sources are reporting it is brand new:

Former President Donald Trump has said that he will not pick his daughter Ivanka to be his running mate in a potential 2024 campaign for president.
Speaking to India’s NDTV, Trump said that he plans to make an announcement about a potential presidential run soon, adding that people will be “very happy” with his announcement.
When asked about the possibility of his eldest daughter being his running mate, Trump emphasized that Ivanka would not be among the choices.
“Ivanka? My daughter? Never thought of that one,” Trump said. “I’ve never even heard but that’s an interesting idea.
“That one I have not heard of, but she’s a very capable person that I can tell you. But no, I have not heard that one,” the former president added.

Meanwhile, I am glad to hear President Trump’s answer.
Sorry Mr. President, we love you but we have never fully trusted Ivanka or Jared.
Sorry, it’s just the truth.
Perhaps it’s due to her close ties to the WEF:
She’s listed on their website here:
And here she is speaking at the WEF as a featured panelist:
Sorry, but she’s a hard “no” from me.
But speaking of VP candidates, we actually recently ran a huge story on this in case you missed it…
I’ll reprint it here:
Trump’s New Running Mate Picked? “He Definitely Likes Her”
Has President Trump selected a new running mate for the 2024 election?
He hasn’t even officially announced he is running yet, although it’s nearly a foregone conclusion.
So…with Pence out, who will the new running mate be?
There is a list of likely candidates and I want to cover those, give you my thoughts on each, and then give you a big hint President Trump may have just dropped about HIS choice!
Where do we start?
How about with the “never gonna happens”.
And heading up that list is Deep State Snake Nikki Haley:
You'll never be Trump's running mate.
You're never be the GOP nominee.
You HAD a shot before you decided to diss Trump.
Magaworld will never forgive you. https://t.co/sSMPYrlLbT

Sorry Nikki, we’ve had enough NWO acolytes and we damn sure don’t need you!
Go hang out with your buddies the Mother-WEF-ers.
Next up: DeSantis.
Never Gonna Happen for a couple reasons….
One, we need him in Florida.
Two, I think it’s going to be a lady.
And Three, I think he’s a great Governor, but I’m not sure he could take on D.C.
Yeah, I said it.
I don’t care if that’s an unpopular opinion. I think he’s a great guy, I think he means well, and I think he is making good moves, but I don’t think he has the same steel backbone as Trump to take on the D.C. Swamp. Different ballgame.
Stay in Florida Ron, we need you there1
I thought this next one was hilarious (and yes, I know this is a parody account):
TRUMP – MY PILLOW GUY 2024! I'm pleased to announce that The My Pillow Guy will be my 2024 Running Mate! And if you donate $100 to my Legal Fund, My Pillow Guy will send you a coupon redeemable for 3- My Pillows for the price of 1. That's right!! THREE for the low low price of 1. pic.twitter.com/EsGOD9vsZg

Never gonna happen, but it’s funny!
Can you imagine these two Wild Bulls running roughshod over D.C.?
I’d actually kind of like it.
Two self-made Mavericks who never back down.
But…the odds are zero of this one.
Next lets go to Gov. Kristi Noem:

Noem herself says she would be “shocked” if Trump asked her, but I think she’s just playing coy.
I think she’s in the running and I think she’s fabulous.
Is she ready for D.C.?
I’m not sure, and it may be another situation like DeSantis where she’s better served staying as Governor, but we will see.
Next up came a big clue when a source close to Trump said this:

So, who was he talking about?
According to our friends over at the Conservative Brief, he likes New York Rep. Elise Stefanik.
I do too.
I think she’s oddly both a dark horse candidate and a leading contender, possibly for the same reason.
She’s strong and bold and makes a nice pairing with Trump.
From the Conservative Brief:
There are four Republican women most often mentioned as possible Trump running mates: Nikki Haley, Elise Stefanik, Kristi Noem and Sarah Palin. Haley is the most prepared on paper. She was the governor of South Carolina and Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations. But, despite their close working relationship and friendship, they’ve had their differences. In 2016, when Trump was running, Haley said she’d endorse any Republican except Trump.
Stefani has been a congresswoman since 2015 and has made a huge shift to the right since her election. She backed Trump during his impeachment and backed his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Noem is nationally known and popular with conservatives, but she took a bit of a hit when she said she’s comfortable with women leaving her state to get an abortion.
Back in late May, CNN published a report speculating that New York Rep. Elise Stefanik is likely a frontrunner.
While talk about a 2024 vice-presidential pick is of course premature, conversations about adding Stefanik to a future Trump ticket have gained steam in recent weeks at Mar-a-Lago and in other Republican circles, sources said. Current and former advisers and others in Trump’s orbit have privately argued that the New York Republican, who replaced Rep. Liz Cheney as the no. 3 House Republican last year, is a fierce and loyal attack dog, and Trump would benefit from tapping a woman for vice president should he run again.
Two people familiar with the matter said Trump has been surveying close friends and allies on what they think of Stefanik, one of several Republican women he is possibly eyeing for the potential VP slot, though he has not ruled out a few male contenders, too. One of these people said the former President believes Stefanik has undergone a genuine transformation – leaving the moderate wing of the party to join its increasingly powerful “America First” flank.
“There is a part of Trump who thinks he needs a female VP. He definitely likes her, likely because of how effusive she is to him,” an adviser to the former president said.
“President Trump thinks very highly of Elise Stefanik. … She has been talked about in circles close to him as a potential vice president,” Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said. “And there’s a feeling among a lot of people on the Republican side that they need to have a woman on the ticket this time.”
I think she’s a leading contender.
Now we end with my top choice…
And I’ve flipped my opinion on this, but it’s Kari Lake.
Not that I’ve changed my opinion on her — I have been BLOWN AWAY by her since I first saw her expertly dismantle the crooked MSM.
Everyone loves DeSantis, and he’s a good guy as I mentioned above, but there is core fighter DNA that you either have or don’t have.
And even as strong as DeSantis is, there are very few who have the core constitution that Trump has.
Kari Lake is the ONLY other person on the national scene that has the same fight as Donald Trump.
She is his natural successor.
I used to be worried about who would take over after Trump left office.
Once I met Kari Lake, I was not worried any more, at least for 8 more years.
We don’t need to return to another all-talk, do-nothing RINO Republican.
We need an outsider who has the steel fortitude to FIGHT and not back down…
To stand up for what’s right at all costs….
To put America First!
That is Donald Trump.
And it’s Kari Lake.
I used to think we needed Kari in Arizona, but I think AZ could be ok with Finchem:
Kari Lake is everything Mike Pence wasn't, if she wins the Arizona Governor election I'd almost expect Trump to tap her for his running mate, which could make Mark Finchem Governor of Arizona

And letting Lake serve with Trump for 4 years and be at his right hand could be invaluable.
Then we roll from 4 new years of Trump into 8 years of Lake.
So that’s my take, but we’ll see what happens!

But that’s just my opinion…
….who’s YOUR pick?
