There have been speculations about Donald Trump’s potential VP after he secures his Republican nomination

Former US President and Republican forerunner Donald Trump has once again revealed who would be his running mate after he secured his party’s nomination for November’s face-off with Democrat Joe Biden.

While speaking in an interview with Fox News Sunday, he did not name any specific person for the post however, he let his supporters and observers guess who would be the potential candidate by describing the qualities.

Donald Trump said that his running mate “must possess the capability of being a good president in case of any emergency” that could surround his administration, as things are unpredictable.

There have been speculations about his potential vice president after he secures the Republican nomination to contest the White House.

“Always it’s gotta be who is going to be a good president. Obviously, you always have to think that, because in case of emergency,” the 77-year-old said.

“Things happen, right? No matter who you are, things happen. That’s gotta be number one,” the indictment-stricken said.

Polls suggest that the business mogul is leading the Republican race after securing victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, with former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley trailing behind.

The four-time indicted former president did not join any of the Republican debates and currently, the race within the GOP has narrowed down to these two candidates.

Underlining that he has no intention to announce his running mate for “a little while,” he, however, gave some hints about who he would be picking for the country’s second most important post.

“You know, I called [South Carolina Senator] Tim Scott and people like Tim Scott, and I said you’re a much better candidate for me than you are for yourself,” Trump said.

“When I watched him, he was fine. He was good, but he was very low-key,” the former commander in chief said.

Trump also noted that South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has caught his attention.

Kristi Noem had said that she would not run against Donald Trump because she does not believe that she, or anyone else for that matter, can beat him.

Media reports earlier claimed that Trump has been considering taking Robert F. Kennedy Jr as a possible running mate — who has left the Democrat party and is running for the White House.

Kennedy denied any such arrangement. Trump Sunday also rejected claims by saying these discussions never happened.
