Report: Melania Trump Advocates for Tucker Carlson as Donald’s Vice President

Melania Trump, the former First Lady and spouse of the current GOP presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump, is reportedly urging him to consider Tucker Carlson as his Vice President.

Tucker, the former host of Fox’s leading news program, faced rumors of termination in April due to his support for the former president and claims of political bias within President Biden’s Department of Justice.

Aligning with Trump, Carlson asserted that the Jan. 6 Capitol breach was influenced by Democratic agents and policy decisions, including Nancy Pelosi’s alleged failure to properly activate the National Guard.

Following his departure from Fox News, Tucker has hosted an opinion-based news program on X (“Tucker on Twitter”). Axios recently disclosed that Melania is strongly advocating for Carlson to join her husband on the GOP ticket, despite Trump facing multiple indictments and civil cases. His nomination, however, is anticipated to proceed smoothly.

The Daily Caller revealed that while Trump admires Carlson, he hesitates to invite him as his VP due to Carlson’s influential following and commanding personality that could potentially overshadow the campaign.

In an interview with Outkick’s Clay Travis and Buck Sexton, Trump praised Carlson as a man of “great common sense.”

Speculation abounds that Trump might opt for a female Vice President, with Nikki Haley, Kari Lake, Elise Stefanik, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders being considered top contenders.

During a recent interview, Carlson mentioned becoming an “active Trump supporter” after the FBI’s controversial raid on Trump’s home and office in Mar-a-Lago. The subsequent leaks and the FBI’s reluctance to disclose a seized items inventory intensified the situation, garnered public sympathy for Trump, and boosted his popularity in the polls.

Speaking of the importance of the 2024 election during a Nov. 30th interview, Carlson said: “So it’s bigger than Trump. It’s bigger than Biden. It’s a question of ‘Do you want to live in a free country with a functioning justice system?’ So I’m voting for Trump, and if they convict him, I will send him the max donations and I will lead protests. That’s how I feel.”
