Former President Donald Trump has threatened to sue CNN and said that he plans to sue other networks and media sources for “defamatory statements.”
“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Mr Trump announced on Wednesday in a statement from his Save America political action committee. ‘I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me,” the former president said. “I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!”
With speculation ripe that former President Donald Trump will run for president in 2024, rumors are beginning to surface about who he may choose as his possible running mate.
One recent report speculated that New York Rep. Elise Stefanik is likely a frontrunner, CNN reported.
While talk about a 2024 vice-presidential pick is of course premature, conversations about adding Stefanik to a future Trump ticket have gained steam in recent weeks at Mar-a-Lago and in other Republican circles, sources said. Current and former advisers and others in Trump’s orbit have privately argued that the New York Republican, who replaced Rep. Liz Cheney as the no. 3 House Republican last year, is a fierce and loyal attack dog, and Trump would benefit from tapping a woman for vice president should he run again.
