Trump Likely to Focus on Females, Minorities As Potential 2024 VP Pick: Report

Published

on

  • Trump will likely focus on females and conservatives of color as he eyes a VP for 2024, per Politico.
  • While the former president has not yet announced a campaign, he is watching a number of politicians.
  • Sen. Tim Scott, a buzzy VP prospect in GOP circles, recently met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago.

We are so sorry! We bumped into a system failure and couldn’t take your email this time.

Former President Donald Trump will likely look to women, conservatives of color, and close advisors in picking his vice presidential running mate if he launches a 2024 White House bid, according to Politico.

While former Vice President Mike Pence continues to laud Trump’s legislative accomplishments and explore his own possible 2024 campaign, the former president — who clashed with Pence over the certification of now-President Joe Biden’s electoral victory — is set to make a VP pick on his own terms.

With conservatives overwhelmingly in Trump’s corner, he doesn’t need to choose a No. 2 to make up for any major deficiencies among Republicans. 

Tony Fabrizio, who was Trump’s lead pollster in 2016 and 2020, told Politico that the former president would have more “leeway” in his potential 2024 selection.

“He’s not necessarily looking to balance the ticket geographically, but what he can do is pick to balance gender, race, ethnicity — a lot of different lanes there,” he said. “It could be everything from a Tim Scott in South Carolina to an Asian American in California, somebody Hispanic in Texas. There are so many choices and paths. And there’s lots of time to go.”

Trump recently met with Scott — one of the most prominent Black Republicans in the country — in Palm Beach.

“It was a really warm interaction,” a Republican onlooker told Politico. “Scott was appropriately deferential without being gross, like some people are. There was definitely chemistry there.”

Scott has seen his stock rise in GOP circles after giving the party’s rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s first joint address to Congress. In the third quarter of 2021, the senator raised a massive $8.4 million.

The Palmetto State lawmaker, who is up for reelection in 2022, has also visited the early presidential-nominating states of Iowa and New Hampshire this year.

Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone compared the early campaign moves to a tryout as Trump’s vice presidential pick.

“This is an audition — and Trump is paying attention,” he told Politico. “There’s no question that people running for president are really running for vice president all the time.”

He emphasized: “The key is to make it look like you’re not running for vice president.”

Among Trumpworld, there is a sense that a Black running mate could cut into Democratic advantages with this critical slice of the electorate — and a Hispanic running mate could boost GOP support in states like Arizona, Florida, Nevada, and Texas.

Some in the former president’s orbit have pointed to Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez of Florida — who serves under Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential 2024 candidate — as a Republican to watch.

However, in recent months, Trump has reportedly seen DeSantis as an emerging threat to his claim over the 2024 nomination.

“Trump feels he made DeSantis,” a Trump advisor told Politico. “Trump sees him as a competitor. And he’s not going to have someone with better numbers.”

Gov. Kim Reynolds of Iowa and Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, both staunch conservatives, have generated buzz as potential female candidates, according to the report.

Nikki Haley, the ex-US Ambassador to the United Nations, has been publicly critical of Trump in the past, which appears to have tamped down the buzz surrounding her name.

And Politico noted the lack of fervor for Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota among insiders connected to the former president.

Trump could also opt to pick a close ally like former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows as his running mate, per the report.

“Don’t rule out a consigliere lane for vice president, a Meadows-type,” a GOP source told Politico.

Cristiano Ronaldo sent ‘damning warning’ as Ralf Rangnick plots Manchester United rebuild – Jake Stokes

Published

on

Ralf Rangnick has been officially appointed as Manchester United’s interim manager until the end of the season. With this news, every fan is waiting to see what changes he makes at Old Trafford.

The former Lokomotiv Moscow head of sport and development, who will continue beyond his interim tenure, taking up a consultancy role for two years, has an attractive CV following his fruitful work in the Bundesliga.

With fans excited to see what adjustments Rangnick will make to the Red Devils, United On My Mind writers Omar Garrick and Casey Evans put their heads together via Manchester Evening News’ Facebook live to speculate what the German will do on his first day on the job.

Evans kick-started proceedings by suggesting what United’s new boss may do to ensure an impact is made in such a quick turnaround of fixtures.

CE: “I feel like Rangnick’s going to be the classic, ‘I have some notes’ manager where on his first day he’ll sit everyone down and take appointments in his office.

“He’ll go through everyone, and he’ll be like, ‘look, I’ve marked out these mistakes – stop doing that and do that instead’, and he’ll go through things.

Just like you, we can’t get enough of Manchester United! That’s why we’ve decided to supplement our expansive United coverage on the Manchester Evening News with a more fan-oriented platform catered specifically to United fans – United On My Mind.

“He’ll have notes; there are little things where he’ll have to be frank with people, and I think that’s the manager he seems to be. In this short period, I think that is all he can do.”

“He’ll then work on the set-pieces, work on the pressing, work on the fitness and do all that sort of stuff. In the initial stages, he’ll just be looking to solve little things in peoples games.

Evans continued by speculating how Rangnick’s approach in his opening days could spell the end of Bruno Ferndandes’ and Cristiano Ronaldo’s reign.



Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes

CE: “Bruno Fernandes, he’ll probably go, ‘don’t make those passes, those passes are awful – they make me want to cry, stop trying to hero-ball it and look for some runs.’

“He’ll probably say to Ronaldo, ‘look, are you going to press?’ – the fact is he won’t instantly go to Ronaldo and drop him, but he’ll probably have a conversation with him outlining his expectations.

“That’ll be the same with everyone, and if they don’t meet those expectations, where he’s trying to implement a system that requires discipline and tactics, he’ll swap them out for someone more willing. The system is reliant on everyone being 100 per cent committed.”
