Potential Trump VP pick addresses speculation


Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-Ark.) generated speculation Sunday over her response when asked if she would be open to campaigning as former President Donald Trump’s running mate.

During a Sunday “Face The Nation” interview on CBS News with Margaret Brennan, Sanders was asked whether she would be open to running alongside Trump against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in the November election if the former president wins the Republican primary. While Sanders indicated that she wants to continue serving the people of Arkansas as governor, she did not give a definitive answer to the CBS host.

“Look, I absolutely love the job I have,” Sanders told Brennan. “I think it’s one of the best jobs I could ever ask for. And I am honored to serve as governor, and I hope I get to do it for the next seven years.”

Prior to serving as governor of Arkansas, Sanders served in the role of press secretary during the Trump administration. In November, Sanders endorsed Trump’s campaign for the White House.

During a Fox News town hall event in Iowa earlier this month, Trump said he already knows who his vice presidential pick will be; however, he has not yet announced his choice. According to JP, sources close to the former president have indicated that Trump will most likely choose a woman for the role of vice president.

During Sunday’s interview, Sanders also shared her perspective on the anticipated matchup between Trump and Biden following the primary elections.

“I think this election right now is very simple. It’s a very clear contrast; you have two individuals who have a four-year record to run on,” Sanders said. “One has a record of success coming from a posture and a position of strength in Donald Trump, and one who comes from a position of weakness.”

Sanders told Brennan that Trump is “winning” on “every single thing that voters actually care about,” including the southern border, national security, the economy, and China.

“Every single one of those major issues that really drive voters, Donald Trump is dominating Joe Biden on,” Sanders said. “They both have clear records in which to run from, and I have no doubt that the matchup in November will declare Donald Trump a clear victor because of that contrast.”
