J.D. Vance Reacts to Speculation of Being Considered for Vice President by Trump”

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) said he would “seriously” consider being Former President Donald Trump’s running mate if Trump asked him to.

“Well, Laura, I have actually never spoken to the president about V.P. Speculation. My simple answer is I want to help him however I can. If he asks me, of course I would think seriously about it. It would be a great honor,” Vance said during a Thursday interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“I also am happy to support the agenda in the United States Senate, and regardless, Laura, you have to remember my job is to serve the people of Ohio. Whether it’s supporting Trump’s agenda in the Senate or serving in some other role, we have got to bring good manufacturing jobs and prosperity to the people of Ohio and the American heartland,” he continued.

“For 40 years bipartisan consensus to ship jobs overseas to bring unchecked migration. Trump stopped that. And the real question for the Republican party is whether we follow that lead and double down on that winning agenda or do we try to go back to the old ways and, unfortunately, Laura, as you know as well as I do, there is a critical component of the old guard of the Republican party that wants to go back to the old ways, more immigration, more war, less good wages for American workers,” Vance said.

He added: “Thank god Trump is there to push back against it.”

As RTM previously reported, recently longtime Trump ally Roger Stone weighed in on the dilemma on who Trump should choose as his vice president in the upcoming race.

Stone emphasized the necessity for Trump to select someone capable of seamlessly stepping into the presidency if needed, advancing the principles of his “America First revolution,” and avoiding early missteps.

During an interview with Newsmax host Eric Bolling, Stone voiced his preference, stating, “[He’s a] 20-year member of Congress, former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, someone Donald Trump is very close to and trusts entirely. He’s Hispanic, a former farmer from before he went to Congress. I think he would be an excellent choice.”

Nunes, who served California in the House of Representatives from 2003 to 2022 before transitioning to lead Trump’s media enterprise, had established himself as a steadfast Trump supporter during his congressional tenure.
