Roger Stone Expresses His Favor for Trump’s Vice Presidential Selection

Longtime ally of Donald Trump, Roger Stone, participated in discussions regarding the potential candidate for the ex-president’s vice president, suggesting Devin Nunes, CEO of Trump Media, as a notable contender.

Stone underscored the importance of Trump choosing someone capable of smoothly assuming the presidency if necessary, championing the principles of his “America First revolution,” and avoiding initial missteps.

Speaking with Newsmax host Eric Bolling, Stone shared his preference, remarking, “[He’s a] 20-year congressional veteran, former House Intelligence Committee chairman, a close and trusted ally of Donald Trump. He’s of Hispanic descent, with a background in farming prior to his congressional tenure. I believe he would make an exceptional choice.”

Having represented California in the House of Representatives from 2003 to 2022 before taking the helm at Trump’s media venture, Nunes had solidified his position as a loyal supporter of Trump throughout his time in Congress.

With Trump emerging as the presumed Republican presidential nominee, speculation intensifies regarding his selection of a running mate. Stone noted the expanding list of potential candidates, including Senators Marco Rubio and Tim Scott, Governor Kristi Noem, and Representatives Byron Donalds and Elise Stefanik. Rumors have also surfaced about former Democratic presidential contender Tulsi Gabbard.

Former Vice President Mike Pence, who served alongside Trump during his initial term, has declared his decision not to join Trump as his running mate for the 2024 election and has refrained from endorsing the former president. While he has yet to reveal his voting intentions for 2024, Pence has made it clear that he will not support Biden.

Stone’s insights into Trump’s VP selection process offer a glimpse into the intricate considerations involved. As anticipation mounts for Trump’s announcement, Stone’s analysis contextualizes the direction of Trump’s campaign and the broader implications for the Republican Party.

Stone also emphasized the significance of the Vice President’s role in Trump’s campaign strategy, highlighting the need for a partner who can strongly advocate for Trump’s policies and effectively function within the administration.
