Congresswoman Reportedly Seeks to Become Trump’s Running Mate


According to multiple sources, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is reportedly attempting to position herself as Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick for the 2024 election.

NBC News identified one named source and one anonymous source who spoke about Greene’s ambitions to become Trump’s running mate.

War Room host Steve Bannon is the named source.

“This is no shrinking violet. She’s ambitious — she’s not shy about that, nor should she be,” Bannon said.

“She sees herself on the short list for Trump’s VP,” he reportedly added.

The second source, who has ties to Trump and preferred to remain anonymous, said Greene’s “whole vision is to be vice president.”

NBC News reported that the anonymous source thinks Greene would be one of Trump’s VP finalists.

UncoverDC Editor-in-Chief Tracy Beanz predicted Marjorie Taylor Greene potentially had something planned earlier this month when she worked with Rep. Kevin McCarthy behind the scenes during the House Speaker vote.

Was Greene maneuvering herself to be Trump’s VP?

Who knows?

Only time will tell if that’s indeed her goal.

NBC News added:

That goal is at the heart of Greene’s recent efforts to rebrand herself as a politician who can stand astride the divide between the party’s hard-liners and its establishment wing, the sources said.

It also helps explain why she threw herself into helping elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., speaker of the House after the midterm elections and took assignments on two committees — Homeland Security and Oversight and Accountability — where she can participate in high-profile investigations of President Joe Biden’s administration. McCarthy also chose her to be part of the panel investigating how the government handled the Covid-19 pandemic.

Her push for McCarthy alienated some of her allies in the House Freedom Caucus and like-minded conservative activists, but that was a calculated risk, Bannon said.

“She’s both strategic and disciplined — she made a power move, knowing it would run up hard against her most ardent crew,” he said. “She was prepared to take the intense heat/hatred short-term for the long-term goal of being a player.”

While Trump remains the only GOP 2024 presidential candidate, he hasn’t given any indication on his running mate selection.

It doesn’t appear Greene has given it much thought herself.

Perhaps she doesn’t want to give off the impression that she’s thinking about VP?

Nick Dyer, Greene’s spokesman, said she’s too busy focusing on her committee work in Congress.

“Her work on Oversight, Homeland Security, and the COVID Select committee is her priority and people shouldn’t get wrapped up into rumors,” he said.

Greene reportedly hasn’t “even talked to Steve Bannon” about his VP comments.
