President Trump to Select Female Candidate as Running Mate, Says Steve Bannon

In a recent interview on the Sean Spicer Show, former White House adviser Steve Bannon predicted that President Trump would select a female candidate as his running mate for the 2024 presidential campaign. Bannon discussed possible vice presidential candidates on the show, asserting that he believes President Trump will have a female as the vice president.

The former chief strategist in the Trump administration listed several female vice president candidates for President Trump, including South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), and Kari Lake. Of these candidates, Bannon emphasized that South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was a strong contender, citing her close association with the MAGA movement as a key factor.

Bannon also identified Ms. Stefanik as a formidable candidate due to her recent performance in addressing anti-Semitism. Despite Ms. Mace’s differing view on abortion and her vote for a contempt of Congress charge against Bannon in 2021, Bannon praised her “Trumpian attitude” and her boldness.

President Trump has previously expressed his interest in choosing a woman as his running mate during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Rumors have speculated that this move is aimed at winning over the female suburban vote, seen as critical in beating President Joe Biden.

In a separate interview, President Trump discussed the possibility of choosing Ms. Noem as his running mate, noting her support and endorsement during a rally in South Dakota. While polls show that other GOP presidential candidates such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley are top choices for his vice president running mate, both individuals have expressed their disinterest in the role.

Addressing the ongoing speculations, President Trump hinted at the possibility of considering former Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a potential vice president candidate. Recent polls have shown President Trump leading President Biden in seven key swing states by 5 percentage points, indicating a strong showing for the former president in the polls.

President Trump’s dominance in the polls and the emergence of female candidates as frontrunners for the vice president role have fueled speculation about the dynamics of the 2024 presidential campaign. With election day 11 months away, the Republican Party is seeing a powerful resurgence, positioning itself as a strong contender in the upcoming election. As the political landscape continues to evolve, the selection of a female candidate for the vice president role may prove to be a strategic move for the GOP. The significance of gender representation on the campaign trail may shape the outcome of the 2024 presidential race.
