Donald, You Have To Name A VP

Donald Trump has to name a Vice Presidential running mate today. This decision is imperative for many reasons, and I am unsure why he is procrastinating. I realize Trump likes to be the only person on the stage, but the 2024 election is like no other before. He has to realize this and the importance of a strong person to join him on the ticket to save this country from a Biden/Harris journey to extinction. Let me outline my reasons for calling for Trump’s decision, and then you can decide if my reasoning is valid.

Unprecedented election in modern times: It has been nearly 70 years since we had the same two candidates run in consecutive elections. Sixty-eight years ago. After Eisenhower beat Stevenson in 1952 and won all but nine states, the incumbent president faced Stevenson again four years later and secured an even larger landslide. Whoever wins this election will only have four more years. Many say a vote for Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris. The same is true for Trump. He has to generate some excitement for his running mate now.

Trump is the first president ever to be charged with a crime: Trump is tied up in a New York courtroom by DA Alvin Bragg and will be for up to six weeks. Biden is out on the campaign trail, and Trump is threatened with jail time for violating a gag order. He needs a VP candidate who can hit the trail, get the Republican vision to the voters, and hit hard on Harris.

First of many trials: Trump faces 91 indictments, and Biden’s INJustice Department is going to tie Trump up in courtrooms as long as possible. These are not legitimate trials but a mechanism to impact a Presidential Election. This farce has to be reported and repeated often.

Phenomenal group of potential VPs: The Dems are handicapped with Kamala Harris, who has a lower approval rating than Biden. Trump has a plethora of possible candidates who could give Biden a run for his money. Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, Doug Burgum, Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbott, Elise Stefanik, and Tulsi Gabbard are just a few. The fact there are so many good options may explain why Trump is having a tough time narrowing the list to one.

Campaign Funds: Elections should not be a fundraising contest, but that is the reality. Trump beat Hillary with far less money, but that will not happen twice. The choice of VP could be a massive influx of cash to the ticket. Money to fund a ground game will be crucial.

There has to be a VP Debate: Trump may never get Biden on a debate stage, but Tump’s VP candidate can get Kamala Harris into a debate. Any of Trump’s options will clean Harris’ clock. It has to happen. Biden is weak today, and Harris must be exposed as a weakness for the future.

The trial in New York City is backfiring on the Democrats. With every ruling by the Judge, the foundation is laid for the appeal should Trump be found guilty by the “Jury of his peers.” The Democrats are involuntarily boosting Trump’s numbers, and RFK Jr is now on the ballot in the toss-up state of Michigan. Losing Michigan alone could cost Biden the election. The mainstream media is salivating at the thought of Trump being found guilty and jailed. The picture of Trump behind bars might be history’s most potent campaign shot. If Trump makes an excellent strategic choice for VP, it may be all he needs to tip the scales in his direction beyond the possible Democrat manipulation of the election. So let’s get it done, Mr. Trump. Make your pick, and let’s rally around your choice.

  1. “Whoever wins this election will only have four more years.” That’s not correct.
    A US President can not serve more that two consecutive terms. Biden would be limited to one more term. Because Trump “lost” in 2020, he would be eligible to serve two terms, if elected.

    1. You are incorrect actually:
      The 22nd Amendment reads, in part: “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once.”
