During an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo over the weekend, former President Donald Trump touched on his considerations for a vice presidential running mate should he be the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential candidate. After responding to questions about who he was considering for the role, he also addressed rumors that his campaign reached out to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for the role.

Denying it, he said the rumors are “false” and “never happened.”

Trump’s revelation follows circulating reports that Trump’s campaign approached Kennedy to be his running mate, with a source telling the New York Post that “Trump operatives expressed an interest in Kennedy early on, but it was all premature” until Kennedy announced last year April that he would run for president, a bid he is now taking on as an Independent candidate.

Kennedy himself has voiced a lack of interest in being Trump’s VP pick, as he said last week that his marriage might not “survive it” and that all he wants is to run for president.

While Trump denied reaching out to Kennedy, the Independent presidential candidate told NewsNation that the GOP candidate’s team did reach out to him.

During Sunday’s interview, Trump mentioned two allies – Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem – as his possible picks for VP.

Making it clear that he has a pool of “really good people” to choose from, Trump said he is looking for a vice president who would make a good president.

Commending Scott, he stated, “I called Tim Scott … and I said, ‘you’re a much better candidate for me than you are for yourself.’ When I watched Tim, he was fine, he was good, but he was very low-key, et cetera, et cetera.”

“I watched him in the last week defending me and sticking up for me and fighting for me. I said, man, I said, ‘you’re a much better person for me than you are for yourself’, because, for himself, he was low-key. For me, he’s been a real tiger. He’s been incredible,” he added.

Trump further said that his VP pick “could” end up being Scott as he praised the former GOP presidential candidate’s decision to endorse him before he revealed that he would only consider those who have endorsed his campaign.

The GOP frontrunner then moved on to Noem, saying that she “has been incredible” in her fight for him.

“She said, I’d never run against him because I can’t beat him. That was a very nice thing to say,” he added.
