Even though the 2024 Republican primaries are already in swing, there’s still a lot of action left to come.

Ron DeSantis is expected to run for President, but some conservatives want Trump to pick him for Vice President.

Now Donald Trump gave his thoughts on selecting Ron DeSantis as his 2024 running mate.

DeSantis says his chances at Vice President are “interesting speculation”

Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are both obvious favorites on the Republican ticket for 2024. Trump announced his candidacy in late 2022, while DeSantis still hasn’t shown his intention to run. While some people are wondering if it will be Trump or DeSantis—others have fantasized about having both.

In a recent interview, DeSantis called the idea of running alongside Trump an “interesting speculation.” One thing is sure and that is the Republican Party needs to put an end to the Biden regime. DeSantis is concerned about the prospect of Biden being reelected and the Democrats picking up seats in Congress.

“The whole Party, regardless of any personalities or individuals, you have got to be looking at 2024 and saying, if the Biden regime continues, and they’re able to pick up 10-15 seats in the House and a Senate seat or two, this country is going to be in really, really bad shape,” DeSantis said.

Even though Donald Trump agrees that the radical Left needs to be stopped at any cost, he’s not sure about DeSantis.

Trump calls the idea of him choosing DeSantis an “unlikely alliance”

When Trump was asked about the idea in a Newsmax interview, he said “that would be a very unlikely alliance.” Trump said there are “a lot of great people in the Republican Party” and that he had “never thought of” DeSantis as a potential running mate.

He did recognize that “some people every once in a while mention” the idea of bringing on DeSantis as a Vice President. However, he’s unsure that he would help carry the Republicans to victory. Trump reiterated a previous claim DeSantis would not be anywhere he is without him.

“He was failing badly in the polls. He was out of politics. He was going to be out of politics, and I endorsed him,” Trump said. He went on to claim that his endorsement brought DeSantis “from a very small number to a very high number.”

Despite a lack of interest from the two, their polling as a team could take them to the next level.

DeSantis says he’s “more of an executive guy”

DeSantis and Trump have been neck and neck in the polls for a long time even though the Florida Governor has not entered the race. The next closest contender would be Nicki Haley. If you add the two of them together, you might just end up with an enormous landslide.

There’s also the problem of a Florida law that would require DeSantis to step down from the Governor’s office in order to run for President. Unless the law is changed, he would need to resign shortly after qualifying for the Presidency.

DeSantis might also not be too interested in working for anyone else. “I think I’ m probably more of an executive guy,” he said in an interview with Newsmax. DeSantis wants to “make things happen” and not rely on anyone else to do it for him.
