Trump’s VP Hopefuls Make Statements on TV After Fundraiser

( – Speculation has run rampant for months about who former President Donald Trump will choose for his running mate in the fall. The GOP came together for a spring retreat over the first weekend in May. Trump’s vice presidential hopefuls were at the retreat and had a lot to say.

On Friday, May 3, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), and Republican National Committee (RNC) Co-Chair Lara Trump hosted a welcome reception at the Four Seasons in Palm Beach, Florida.

On Saturday afternoon, Trump hosted a fundraiser luncheon at Mar-a-Lago. Hundreds of high-level Republicans and wealthy donors attended the event. He gave a speech and accused Biden of being the “Gestapo,” a comparison to Nazi Germany.

The former president invited several potential running mates up to speak at his lunch. The next day, some of them made television appearances, including Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum (R).

Rubio called Biden “weak” and “feeble” during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” He said the federal government should revoke the visas of international students who tear “down American flags and [put] up Palestinian flags.” The senator also discussed whether he would move so he could be vice president. The 12th Amendment requires the president and vice president to be from different states. He refused to answer.

Scott appeared on “Meet the Press” on NBC and accused Biden of pandering to the Democratic base regarding the college protests. Host Kristen Welker asked the senator whether he would accept the results of the 2024 election, but said he expects Trump to be the next president.

Burgum spoke to Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union” and accused Democrats of using “welfare” to get people to vote for them. “They get welfare to vote, and then they cheat on top of that — they cheat,” the governor said.
