Donald Trump Taps Two GOP Candidates To Be His Vice President


August 21, 2015 6:25am PST

Trump is currently the frontrunner in the GOP race, and he has now reached an all-time high in the polls.

Since he may have this election in the bag, Trump has already started thinking about who he will be appointing to his administration. Last week, the business mogul announced that he is considering making former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin his Vice President. Days later, rumors spread that Trump would appoint Ann Coulter to be his Homeland Security Chief. Earlier this summer, Trump told the press that he would like billionaire Carl Icahn to be his Secretary of Treasury, and Icahn accepted his offer after he saw Trump win the first debate.

Though Palin was to be Trump’s rumored Vice President at first, sources now say that he is looking at two candidates that are currently still in the GOP race: Ted Cruz and Ben Carson. According to Daily Mail, Trump’s campaign claimed that Trump has “cordial” relationships with both men that are each based on “mutual respect.”

It comes as no surprise that Trump is considering to make Cruz his Vice President, since the two have been allies since the beginning of the election. This week, rumors have swirled about Carson after Trump’s ex-aide Roger Stone was seen meeting with Carson’s campaign chief Jake Menges in New York. Stone claimed that he did not schedule the meeting on Trump’s behalf, however.

In the past, Trump has said good things about Cruz and Carson while he slammed just about every other candidate in the race.

“I like Ted Cruz. I like Dr. Carson,” Trump said recently when he was asked about possible running mates. “They’ve been very supportive of me.”
