Trump’s VP Hopefuls Make TV Appearances After Fundraiser

( – Following a May 4 retreat for private donors at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, his potential vice-presidential picks made TV appearances supporting the former president.

In front of more than 400 guests, Trump mentioned those he is considering as his potential running mate, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.

Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures” on May 5, Stefanik made a connection between the chaos happening on college campuses across the country and the Democratic Party, saying the chaos represents “Joe Biden’s Democrat Party today.” She contrasted that with Republicans, who she said, “represent peace and security.”

In his “Fox News Sunday” appearance, Rubio said President Joe Biden is “feeble” and “weak,” saying that international students found to be involved with “defacing statues” and “putting up Palestinian flags” should have their visas revoked.

When asked if he would change his residency so he could serve as vice president as required by the 12th Amendment, Rubio changed the subject, saying to make sure to choose a state without a “DA that makes a career after going after Republicans,” mentioning the “weaponization of our criminal justice.”

Rubio called the idea of who Trump will choose as running mate “speculation” at this point, adding that Trump has “an extraordinary group of talented people” in the Republican Party, who “can serve this country in multiple roles.”

During his appearance on “Meet the Press,” Scott argued Biden is “pandering” to his base by not condemning antisemitism. Scott also stated that Trump would win the election and be the 47th president of the United States.

During his “State of the Union” appearance, Burgum said that while he believes Biden won the 2020 election, he noted the election had a “huge number of irregularities.”

Despite the speculation of whom Trump will choose as running mate, his team has not moved past the early stages of vetting his potential vice presidential prospects.
