Mike Pence served as Donald Trump’s vice president.
But his 2024 status is up in the air.
Mike Pence may lose his job to one Democrat that will leave your jaw on the ground.
Douglas Mackinnon is a former Reagan and Bush White House aide.
In an op-ed published in The Hill, Mackinnon floated the idea of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis naming former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard as his running mate.
The United States, especially in the age of Trump, has morphed into the Polarized States of America. The inflammatory rhetoric of haters on both sides of the political divide is wearing down the morale of many Americans who are fighting to survive in unprecedented times.
Americans might warmly welcome a presidential ticket that casts aside partisan foolishness and cheap debating points for the benefit of the people. It’s something DeSantis should keep in mind if he runs for president in 2024.
Gabbard is not a run-of-the-mill Democrat.
In 2016 Gabbard opposed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign because Gabbard – who served in Iraq – supports an America First foreign policy.
Gabbard is also a high-profile critic of cancel culture and signed a deal with the free speech video platform Rumble to produce content.
Additionally, Gabbard – who is Catholic – supported legislation before she left Congress in 2020 to ban abortion if the baby could feel pain and to prevent men from competing in women’s college sports.
While Mackinnon assumes that Donald Trump will not run for president in 2024, that appears to be a faulty belief.
As Joe Biden’s poll numbers tumble it appears increasingly likely that Trump will run for president for a third time.
Should Trump enter the race, there is little chance that Mike Pence would challenge him.
Polls show that if Trump runs, the Republican nomination is his for the taking.
That means the big question hovering over the race is who Trump would select as his running mate.
Pence claims he still has a good relationship with Trump.
But even Pence admits the two will never see eye to eye over what happened on January 6 and Trump never mentions Pence when asked about who could serve as a future leader of the Republican Party.
Tulsi Gabbard would be a long shot pick to serve as Trump’s running mate.
While Gabbard holds socially conservative positions and agrees with Trump’s foreign policy, Trump’s running mate in 2024 will be viewed as the next leader of the GOP.
Due to the 22nd Amendment, Donald Trump cannot run for re-election if he wins in 2024 as he will have served two elected terms.
And whoever Trump selects is the instant frontrunner for the 2028 Republican Party presidential nomination.
