It has been reported that Dr. Ben Carson has been helping Donald Trump, the presumptive nominee, choose his running mate. The Wall Street Journal has reported that Carson said he does not want to be Trump’s running mate, even more disturbing Carson said that a Democrat could possibly be considered for Trump’s running mate.
Carson told the Wall Street Journal “I’m not interested in doing that for a number of reasons, I don’t want to be a distraction. I’m sure you remember how crazy the media was about me, it’s too important a time in our life.”
There is a wide net being cast for candidates, Carson said, “We should consider people who are Americans and who put Americans first.”
Now I must say this is not something set in stone as it did not come from the mouth of Donald Trump. However it would be a complete shock to see Trump pick a democrat as a pick for Vice President. He has been one of the most outspoken candidates there has been. Basically calling out any and all flaws on both sides of the table. Lifting himself up as if he is superior in every aspect.
Touting himself to be the most hardcore conservative available for this election. So to turn the table now and cross that line would be doing the unthinkable. It could not work, there is no flexibility when it comes to trump. He is a my way or the highway type of person. If he were to get the Presidency it would be turmoil daily, between him and a democrat VP. In all reality I think whoever he picks as a VP will have their work cut out for them. Trump does not seem to be an easy person to get a long with. A conservative does have a better chance, and the people that are supporting Trump would feel less betrayed with a GOP VP.
