Trump says he’s already decided on 2024 running mate

Former President Donald Trump revealed Wednesday that he’s already settled on a running mate for his 2024 general election campaign if he were to win the Republican nomination for president. 

Trump, however, refused to say who it is when asked during a televised town hall in Des Moines, Iowa. 

“Well, I can’t tell you that really,” Trump, 77, told Fox News hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, the event moderators. 

“I mean, I know who it’s going to be,” he added. 

The GOP presidential primary front-runner also bragged that he’s been fielding numerous calls from people eager to work in his potential new administration — while blasting the “stiffs” in his last one. 

“I have a lot of people that want to work with me,” he said. “I have people calling — just as I’m getting on the stage, I had a call from two of the very most important people in the military wanting to come work for me.”

“Everybody wants to come to work for us. We’re gonna have no trouble. We had great people [in his first term], we had a couple that were not great, stiffs, as I would call them, but that’s true with anybody,” he added. 

Trump leads his competitors in the Hawkeye State by a 35-point margin, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls. 

His closest rivals, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, are polling at about 16.5% compared to Trump’s 52.2% support. 

The Iowa caucuses will be held on Jan. 15.
