Trump Drops Massive BOMBSHELL Hours Before Presidential Debate

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

According to reports, former president Donald Trump will toss President Joe Biden a “curveball” right before the first presidential debate on Thursday night.

“People familiar with the situation” said that Trump might be revealing his running mate before he and Biden even approach the stage at CNN headquarters, according to an NBC News story.

Trump has already declared that he will reveal the identity of the candidate he has chosen before to the start of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee on July 15.

A news report’s credibility is determined by its source, hence reports from anonymous sources should always be regarded with caution.

There’s little denying, though, that Trump selecting a running mate would be a splashy move that would detract from the Atlanta game.

That would be precisely the kind of action Trump has been doing ever since he declared his intention to run for president in 2015 from the top of Trump Tower’s escalator.

This week, news surfaced that Trump’s “VP list” now just consisted of three individuals.

After seeing a video of Trump declaring he had already decided who to pick but hadn’t told anyone, CNN’s Alayna Treene said she believed he had reduced the number of candidates on his initial list.

“There’s so much speculation right now and a lot of anticipation over who Donald Trump is going to ultimately select. And this is the language we’ve heard Donald Trump say for a while, he’s often said that he knows who his choice is going to be,” Treene said.

“However, from my conversations with Donald Trump’s team, they’re still not completely, or they haven’t come to a formal decision yet on who he is going to select as his running mate. What I do know is that he has really narrowed his list to three top contenders: That is Doug Burgum, J.D. Vance and Marco Rubio, all people that they believe currently are at the top of his list,” Treene added.

“But of course, this is Donald Trump we’re talking about. Whenever we try to predict who a candidate will pick for VP, it’s always a difficult task. It’s even harder with Donald Trump. And again, when I talk to his team, they say he is someone who changes his mind every day based on who he sees on TV, who he speaks with over the phone. And so until he formally makes his announcement, Donald Trump can change his mind up until the last minute,” she continued.

For months, rumors about Trump’s “VP list” have been circulating widely.

According to other recent reports, Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Tom Cotton (R-AR), Representatives Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY), and the three finalists were not the only Republicans on Trump’s initial list of potential vice presidents.

Ben Carson, the former secretary of housing and urban development, has also been brought up.

Trump declared earlier this week that he has selected his running mate.

Speaking to reporters prior to his rally in Philadelphia on Saturday, the former president said he had selected who would be the pick but declined to reveal who it would be.

“Trump tells me and @DashaBurns just now: – He’s picked his VP – He hasn’t told them yet – They’ll be at the debate,” NBC News reporter Jake Traylor said on X, formerly Twitter.
