Trump has narrowed his list of potential vice-presidents down to five, reports Bloomberg Politics, who met with the presumptive GOP nominee Wednesday in Trump Tower. He confided about the type of person he wanted to work by his side in leading the nation, and said he wants to make the announcement the old-fashioned way, at the convention.
Two business leaders were on the list, but they have been scratched, as Trump feels his own business experience is best in that category. He said business leaders will be tapped for other positions in his administration, including trade. “We’ll have some of the greatest dealers in the world, because we haven’t that,” Trump said. “We’re going to use our good business people.”
The five people remaining on Trump’s VP list are all experienced politicians, including at least one or more former rivals who haven’t endorsed him yet. Trump did confirm that it’s NOT Rick Perry, although he said he would like to see Perry in his administration.
Bloomberg said Trump also spoke with them about fundraising, saying he does not need to raise $1 Billion, as was previously estimated. He said it will not take nearly that much to win the White House. He pointed out that he is different than other candidates in that he is a former reality TV personality and gets so many interview invitations already.
