    The Stakes Are Higher: Trump’s VP Choice Could Make or Break 2024!

    Former President Donald Trump is on his way to securing the GOP presidential nomination. Now, he will need to select another running mate.

    And this time, the choice will be even more crucial.

    “This time Trump’s calculus will be much different than it was during his last two campaigns,” New York Magazine’s Intelligencer column noted. “Unlike in 2016, he can pretty much choose whoever he wants (within reason). Assuming the primary continues on its current trajectory, he will owe his nomination to no particular party faction; that means there’s no significant bloc of intraparty opposition that he must appease the way conservative evangelicals needed to be placated with Mike Pence.”

    “Trump also has to think about his legacy. Since he’s limited to two terms, his veep will be the prohibitive front-runner in 2028 if Republicans win,” the column continued. “Even if they don’t take back the White House, the vice presidential choice is Trump’s best opportunity to designate a successor not only as party leader but as the chieftain of the MAGA movement.”

    The former president has made several comments about potential running mates, but he has yet to make a hard-and-fast determination.
