  • Thoughts on Trump's Vice President (Whoever it May Be)

    07/13/2016 10:41:46 AM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 45 replies
    Within the next 48-72 hours, we should know who Donald Trump has chosen for a running mate. Some think it will be Friday and others think it will be over the weekend. But chances are, we will know by this time on Saturday (just three days from now) as typically candidates want to maximize the convention news cycle and announcing a few days prior will help accomplish that and build some excitement leading into the convention itself. I have no idea who Trump is going to pick but I do know this: Once the pick is made, there is...

    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is “95 percent” likely to pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, according to the Washington Times. Sources close to Pence and to the Trump campaign tell Washington Times’ reporter Ralph Hallow that Pence is the probable vice presidential (VP) pick. The Trump campaign announced Sunday it would hold a campaign rally near Indianapolis on Tuesday night, furthering the rumor that Pence will be announced as the VP choice.

  • Donald Trump to Ben Carson: You’re Fired… From My VP Team

    Ben Carson has the ability to say everything he shouldn’t at exactly the wrong time. Since the former neurosurgeon has taken up the role of working on Donald Trump’s vice presidential team, he has suggested that the candidate may pick a Democratic running mate, dropped she-who-must-not-be-named Sarah Palin as a potential pick and earlier generally questioned a number of the presumptive nominee’s habits from his Twitter use to lack of pragmatism. So he was off the VP team in a hurry.

    Donald Trump will meet Monday with Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, whom key Republicans consider a possible running mate for the presumptive nominee. The pair is scheduled to meet at Trump Tower in New York City, The Washington Post reports, citing sources who asked not to be named. Corker, 63, is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is the former mayor of Chattanooga and was first elected to Congress in 2006. He has had a key role in many foreign policy issues involving the Obama administration, including the Iran nuclear deal.

    Donald Trump has hired the same D.C. power lawyer who vetted Sarah Palin in 2008 to conduct the legal review of his potential running mate. NBC News confirms that A.B. Culvahouse, a partner in the firm O'Melveny & Myers, will lead the process of sifting through financial, legal and other background materials submitted by potential candidates before Trump finalizes his choice for second-in-command. Trump personally met Culvahouse Wednesday in New York after the Trump campaign reached out to at least two DC-based law firms in an effort to find the best counsel for the job. After John McCain made a...

    Donald Trump climbed to the top of the real estate world in the most ruthless, cut-throat, predatory and brutally competitive venues in the world, New York City. Trump did not become the multi-billion-dollar successful deal-maker through naive decisions or suffering with fools – that’s not how success in that business venue works... Understand this and you understand why Donald Trump’s inner circle is life-long or multi-decades deep. Understand this – and you also understand that everything outside of that nucleus is disposable. Everything outside that circle is a tool.

    As I watched Sarah Palin deliver a speech on behalf of Donald Trump the other day before an GOP establishment fundraiser in Wisconsin, I was struck by the enthusiastic response of the crowd. She received a standing ovation at the end. Ted Cruz, who followed her on the dais, received only light and intermittent applause. The contrast in their political skills was stark. Palin was the star who knew how to connect with, and hold, her audience. Cruz, not so much... Let me say at the outset that I am analyzing this from a purely utilitarian and political point of...

    Dr. Ben Carson confirmed five people on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s list of potential vice presidential running mates in a recent interview. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate to John McCain, was one of the five Carson said was on the list. The rest are all former 2016 GOP presidential candidates: Trump’s closest competitor Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. (Read more at source)

    With the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees all but decided, attention turned Sunday to the possible contenders for vice president. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he and his wife, Calista, “could be lured into a new path” if presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump were to ask him to join the ticket. “If he can convince Calista and me that it’s doable and it’s serious and that we would in fact contribute, I think we’d be very hard pressed not to say yes,” Mr. Gingrich said on “Fox News Sunday.”

    KARL: ...So, where is the center of gravity now for the Republican Party? SESSIONS: That's a good question, Jonathan. I would say it's with the movement Donald Trump is leading. He is leading the Republican Party, which is the Republican voter. And the Republican voter is adopting his views and not the views that too often we've seen out of Washington, Democrat and Republican. And so I think he's showing real strength there. He's unifying the people who are going to say we want some change. We want better jobs, better wages. We don't want falling wages. We want an...

    Donald Trump says there’s a 40 percent chance he picks someone from this year’s Republican presidential field as his vice president. But the odds-on favorite to win the veepstakes: Newt Gingrich. The former speaker of the house was a perpetual thorn in the side of the Bill Clinton administration. And he sounds like he’s relishing a shot at Hillary Clinton. Gingrich has lavished praise on Trump. The business mogul has not said much about the man named Newt. But oddsmakers and betting markets like Gingrinch’s chances nonetheless. In this unpredictable election season, bookies have some other strange options in mind...

    Donald Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski, who was falsely accused of assault and battery by attention-seeking hoaxer Michelle Fields in March, will head up Donald Trump’s VP search. The Hill reported: "Donald Trump’s controversial campaign manager will helm the presumptive GOP nominee’s running mate search, the Washington Post reported Tuesday. Corey Lewandowski will lead the campaign’s vetting of prospective vice presidential candidates, a process the Post says will “ramp up” shortly. Ben Carson, who ended his own presidential bid earlier this year, has confirmed previously that he will be on the search committee as well. Carson has so far muddied...
