Despite Texas Senator Ted Cruz coming closer to him in terms of delegates, Donald Trump is way more than optimistic. In an interview published this Monday, the business man talked about his plans for when he will be at the White House. Still, this wasn’t shocking at all, compared to the statement he made when asked who he would prefer as a vice president!
Is he trying to lure his rivals?
According to Western Journalism, Trump is willing to have either Ohio Governor John Kasich, Florida Senator Marco Rubio or even Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker alongside himself. If Kasich’s name is not surprising on this list, since Trump is looking forward to attracting as much endorsements as possible before the New York primaries, the other two names are huge surprises.
“There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names. … I do like Marco. I do like Kasich. … I like Walker actually in a lot of ways.”
Donald Trump mentioning the possibility of him working closely with Marco Rubio is more than just surprising, considering the numerous clashes they had when the Florida Senator was still in the race for the nomination.
“He made a mistake,” Trump said of Rubio. “He became Don Rickles for about four days, and then I became worse than Don Rickles.”
A ‘failed governor’ could make a good VP in Trump’s book
The same thing goes for Governor Walker, who was highly criticized by Trump after announcing his endorsement for Ted Cruz. The real estate tycoon even called him a failed governor, claiming that Wisconsin was doing very poorly under his leadership.
“I hit him very hard,” Donald Trump said of Scott Walker. “But I’ve always liked him. There are people I like, but I don’t think they like me because I have hit them hard,” he added.
And now, the question…Is this the president the U.S. needs? A man who almost destroys people and then wants to work with them?
