OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

During an interview with Newsmax, Donald Trump Jr. garnered attention by proposing that Tucker Carlson could be a viable candidate for the vice-presidential position alongside his father, the former President Donald Trump.

During the discussion about potential running mates for Trump, Trump Jr. voiced his endorsement for the former Fox News personality. “I’d love to see a Tucker Carlson,” he said, highlighting a need for a candidate who is “principally in alignment as well as aggressive.”

Trump’s son criticized the current Republican leadership in Washington, D.C. as well. “The Republicans in Washington, D.C., are weak. You can have the House, the Senate, and they’ll still roll over,” he stated.

In response to a direct question concerning the seriousness of contemplating Carlson for vice president, Trump Jr. said,  “Clearly, it would be on the table, right? They’re very friendly. I think they agree on virtually all of these things. They certainly agree on stopping the never-ending wars.”

In addition, Trump Jr. cited Ben Carson, the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development during his father’s presidency, as a possible contender. He characterized Carson as an exceptional American who is unwavering and devoted.

Carlson’s remark indicates a noteworthy change in the prospective pool of vice-presidential candidates, which has previously been limited to well-known political leaders. Carlson, renowned for his assertive viewpoints and sway over conservative viewers, may serve as a calculated selection intended to invigorate the Republican voter base.

The former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley is a viable vice presidential candidate, but Trump Jr. expressed his personal view against it. “That’s my opinion. I don’t make these decisions. I don’t think that’s currently really on the table,” he remarked.

Earlier this month, during a town hall organized by Fox News in Iowa, Trump announced that he had chosen his vice presidential candidate. Trump jokingly said, “I know who it’s going to be.”


“You give us a hint,” Bret Baier asked.

“We’ll do another show sometime,” Trump said.

Traditionally, the choice of a vice-presidential candidate is made nearer to the party’s national convention or following the identification of the presumed nominee for the presidency. Although Trump is currently leading the race for the GOP nominee after Monday’s caucus, speculation continues regarding who would be his alternative choice.

Currently, there are multiple prospective contenders under speculation for Trump’s selection. Several names being referenced include:

The individuals mentioned include South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Dr. Ben Carson, and former GOP opponent Vivek Ramaswamy. Trump has expressed his intention to rely more on his intuition when selecting his running mate this time, rather than the factors that influenced his decision to choose Mike Pence in 2016.

In December, Tucker Carlson endorsed Ramaswamy as a possible Vice Presidential contender to run alongside Trump. “I have a certain degree of fondness for Vivek.” I believe he is one of those individuals who is often criticized and ridiculed for his fraudulent nature and other related matters.

Ramaswamy, a businessperson renowned for his opposition to the “woke” ideology, has positioned himself outside the conventional political framework. He frequently arises in speculations as a potential Vice Presidential candidate for Trump.
