The status of the relationship between Donald Trump and Mike Pence is one of the most talked about issues in the Republican Party.
Now there might finally be an answer as to what is really going on.
That’s because Donald Trump went on Fox News and made a major announcement about Mike Pence.
Donald Trump’s political re-emergence continued in a phone interview with Fox Business Channel’s Stuart Varney.
Trump’s increasingly hinted that he will announce a 2024 presidential campaign at some point in the future.
The natural question for Varney is if that means Trump will stick with Mike Pence as his running mate or swap him out for someone like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Trump disputed some reports that he no longer gets along with Pence telling Varney that he and Pence had a good relationship.
But Trump added that he would consider naming Governor DeSantis as his running mate.
Trump noted that DeSantis owed his political rise to Trump endorsing him when DeSantis was running far behind in the polls in the Florida Republican gubernatorial primary.
“Sure I would,” Trump told Varney. “But, you know, there are numerous people that are great. I would certainly consider Ron. I was at the beginning of Ron. I was the first one to endorse him when he came out as a congressman that a lot of people didn’t know and my endorsement helped him tremendously and I know him very well. He’s a great guy.”
But Trump added that it was no slam dunk that Trump would select DeSantis as his running mate should Trump win the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
“We have other great people, I mean you look at some of the people, the Republican people, that have done a great job with states,” Trump continued.
Trump openly discussing replacing Pence on the ticket came on the heels of Pence delivering a speech in New Hampshire where Pence admitted there was a fracture between him and Trump after the events of January 6.
“Jan 6 was a dark day in the history of our US Capitol…that same day we reconvened the Congress and did our duty. You know, President Trump and I have spoken several times since we left office and I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye on that day,” Pence stated.
All available public polling data shows that Trump holds a wide lead over other Republican presidential hopefuls.
Some potential contenders like former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley publicly stated that she would not run for president in 2024 if Trump gets in the race.
That prospect has many Republicans looking past who will win the nomination and towards who Trump would select as his running mate.
And in this latest interview, Trump dropped his biggest hint yet that he may move on from Mike Pence if he launches a 2024 presidential campaign.
