Trump Cleans House: Removes Names From VP Shortlist

(Republican Party News) – Now that former President Donald Trump has become the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, his focus is shifting to choosing a vice presidential running mate, reducing the list of names on the shortlist, while also picking a few names for cabinet positions should he once again find himself sitting in the Oval Office.

A piece from Bloomberg cited several sources who are privileged to be within Trump’s inner circle, stating that he has already eliminated pharmaceutical executive Vivek Ramaswamy as his potential vice presidential running mate, though he does want to offer him an administration role should he defeat President Joe Biden later this year.

“Bloomberg reporters Jennifer Jacobs and Justin Sink claimed Trump has already informed Ramaswamy he will not be selected as a running mate. Sources said Trump’s closest aides see the 38-year-old as a natural choice to lead the Department of Homeland Security,” The Western Journal noted.

“Some Trump allies see Ramaswamy as ideal for the job because they say he excels at public speaking and, as an Indian-American son of an immigrant, could neutralize criticism of sweeping immigration restrictions,” Jacobs and Sink went on to say about the situation. The reporters believe that Trump is looking for a person who will thrive behind-the-scenes and is not all that interested in being the center of attention.

“Trump has confided to close advisers and allies that none of the names circulating as potential running mates have impressed him much,” Jacobs and Sink wrote in their report. “His list of options has only grown longer, not shorter, according to people close to the former president.”

There are, seemingly, a few names on the list that are a little too establishment-like for the comfort of many Trump supporters, such as GOP Sen. Katie Britt of Alabama, who many have compared to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The last thing we need is another establishment hack in a powerful position in Congress. Trump killed that sort of thing off during his first jaunt in the White House. And it needs to stay in the grave.

“One person not expected to join a hypothetical second Trump administration is Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, the report claimed. Per Bloomberg, Trump and DeSantis recently had a very cordial phone conversation, but Trump is still peeved by the governor’s bid for the GOP nomination,” The Western Journal stated.

After Trump’s extremely powerful showing at the Iowa caucuses, DeSantis suspended his campaign.

“Along with Ramaswamy, some prospective cabinet officials include North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York and and Robert Lighthizer, who served as the Trump administration’s U.S. Trade Representative from 2017 to 2021,” the report continued.

One of the cabinet positions that Trump is thoughtfully considering is that of attorney general. There are two names he’s evaluating, one being Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and the other Sen. Mike Lee, a Utah Republican. Either one of these men would do a fine job in that position and could play a critical role in helping to dig out the deep state elements within the Justice Department that have been weaponized against conservatives.

Jason Miller, an adviser for Trump, cautioned people not to believe everything they are reading about the former president’s picks for vice president and the various other cabinet positions.

“Apparently somebody has decided to list out everyone who has ever met President Trump and is now speculating as to their potential participation in a second Trump administration,” Miller went on to say in a statement.

He finished by stating, “The truth is that unless you hear it directly from President Trump or his campaign, this is all B.S.”

  1. I like Ted Cruz to be in your cabinet. I also would like to see Nikki Haley as your vice-president. I also like Senator John Kennedy. Everything he says is truthful and honest. You might think about Mike Huckeby also. He has supported you from the get-go. You have a lot of supporters, so pick them and leave the others in the dust.

  2. I agree ! The moderates and Independents ( like me) will decide this election ! If Trump can put aside his egotistical tendencies and select Nikki Haley as his running mate it will guarantee a win ! Ted Cruz would be great in his cabinet . The guy has guts and tells it like it is . Senator Kennedy certainly comes across as honest but hopefully will not run as a third party candidate because this could skew the results.
