Donald Trump says DeSantis would be a good vice president candidate if he ran in 2024

Over the weekend, former President Donald Trump said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would make a good vice-president if he ran in 2024. 

Trump made the suggestion the first night of a “History Tour” with former Fox News host, radio commentator and author, Bill O’Reilly.

When asked whether DeSantis would be on the ticket if Trump were to run again, Trump agreed that he would be a good candidate. “I think Ron [DeSantis] would be good,” Trump said. “I think Mike [Pence] has been very hurt by what took place with respect to January 6. I think he’s been mortally wounded, frankly.”

Trump did acknowledge that there were “a lot” of other good options for running mates too, and said a woman or South Carolina Senator Tim Scott could be in the frame.

Mention of DeSantis brought huge applause, The Sun Sentinel said, while mention of former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, elicited loud boos.

Trump praised DeSantis, and took credit for helping him win the gubernatorial race by giving him “a beautiful endorsement” in 2017, according to The Sun Sentinel.
