Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee, rumors have been circulating left and right over who Trump’s vice presidential pick could be.
Trump has dropped several hints, stating that he wants someone with political experience — an insider. Some political pundits have suggested that Trump might also pick a woman in order to counter presumed Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s “woman card.”
But Politico has reported that, based on the criteria Trump has laid out so far, there is one person who is a very strong match to be Trump’s VP pick.
Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., lines up well with what Trump has said he is looking for. Corker was one of the first senators to get behind the Trump campaign and just two weeks ago spent a significant amount of time praising Trump’s foreign policy.
“(He) offered to help Donald Trump develop a foreign policy platform, making him one of the few senators to publicly embrace Trump … Trump called him last week and he and Trump’s campaign staff have talked since then,” reported USA Today.
Corker used to be in business, which would also make him a good match with the billionaire. Corker also has a reputation for working closely with Democrats.
“Corker is not well-liked by his colleagues in the Senate. A big reason is he likes to get stuff done with Democrats. Trump might find that attractive,” said an anonymous Republican.
There are other potential names floating around as well, like Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., and Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind.
The problem with some potential Trump VP picks is that they have very bright political futures ahead of them, and some are afraid that being associated with Trump could damage their potential political futures.
That being said, there are still literally dozens of Republicans in the field that could be solid picks for Trump. We may not know for several weeks or even months who Trump picks, but we are sure it will be someone who will help make America great again.
