Tulsi and Ramaswamy among possible vice presidential candidates: Donald Trump

Presidential elections are going to be held in America this year. Donald Trump is the presidential candidate from the Republican Party in this election. Meanwhile, news is coming that former President Trump is also considering the name of Indian origin Vivek Ramaswamy as the Vice Presidential candidate in the elections.

Think about the 6 potential candidates Trump is running for

Trump participated in a news channel's town hall program on Tuesday. During this time, Trump was asked about 6 possible candidates for the post of Vice President. Former President Trump named South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Indian-American biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, Florida Representative Byron Donalds and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

Ramaswamy was out of the presidential race

Meanwhile, Trump did not name Nikki Haley, another Indian-American woman who is still in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Ramaswamy had a poor performance in the Iowa caucuses in January. Subsequently, he not only withdrew from the Republican Party as a presidential candidate but also declared his support for Trump. Donald Trump wins landslide victory in Iowa caucuses.

All names in the shortlist…: Trump

When the host of the program asked Donald Trump, are all these 6 names in your shortlist as possible Vice Presidential candidates? Responding to that, Trump said that they are all on the shortlist. To be honest, they are all good people. They are capable people. Earlier in August 2023, Ramaswamy had indicated that if he did not become the presidential candidate from the Republican Party, he would contest the elections with someone else.

Nikki Haley is not ready to withdraw from the presidential race

DeSantis finished second in the Iowa caucuses. DeSantis and Trump spent a year blaming each other before dropping out of the presidential race. However, DeSantis endorsed Trump following the results of the Iowa caucuses. So Trump also stopped getting angry at him. Talking about Nikki Haley, she has refused to withdraw her candidature from the post of President. Last week in South Carolina, he vowed to remain in the race for the White House. Trump is leading over Nikki Haley in this race.
