Former Fox News star and current new media entrepreneur Tucker Carlson has finally responded to rumors that former President Donald Trump is considering him to be his 2024 running mate.
The response comes after Axios reported last week that former First Lady Melania Trump was lobbying her husband to choose Carlson, and Trump indicated on the “Clay Travis and Buck Sexton” show that he would be open to the idea.
“Here’s an interesting twist: Melania Trump is an advocate for picking Tucker Carlson, the booted Fox News star. She thinks Carlson would make a powerful onstage extension of her husband, a source close to Trump told us. The former first lady has made few campaign appearances this time around, but a Trump-Carlson ticket might encourage her to hit the trail,” Axios reported.
