Donald Trump opened up on who he is considering to make his running mate during an interview with conservative radio talker Hugh Hewitt in which the host told him he should consider either Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) or Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) as his potential Vice President.
“These are two names that I have high on the list for something at least, that I can tell you,” Trump replied, according to The Blaze.
“I can’t give you any clues or anything right now, because I do have a lot of respect for those two guys,” Trump added. “But I have a lot of respect for others, also. Chris came out very early and endorsed me. I’ve gotten very good, you know, very good statements from Sen. Cotton, who I know, whose parents I know and met. I think that he is a very talented guy. He’s also very popular. He’s a very popular person.”
This came as a surprise to many, since Cotton had just said on Wednesday that he does not think he’s being considered.
“I have no reason to think that Donald Trump is gonna ask me to do that, and I’m not being vetted,” he said.
This came after former Trump advisor Michael Caputo told Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade that he believes the business mogul “unorthodox” selection, such as Cotton or Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah). He said Cotton is “a heck of a guy” and described Love as “somebody who is an African-American leader with really bright ideas and an ability to communicate.”
