During a campaign stop at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump spoke to Christian mogul Pat Robertson about what he is looking for in a Vice President.
“Assuming you will be the nominee of the party [Republican] what are the most important qualities that you are going to look for in a Vice Presidential candidate? And feel free to name some names,” a member of the audience asked The Donald, according to Western Journalism.
“We started off with 17 we’re now down to five,” Trump responded. “The main quality that you want is somebody that could be a great president, if something happens to you, that’s got to be — don’t you think that’s got to be number one?”
“And then I would want somebody who could help me with government. So most likely that would be a political person,” Trump added, making it clear he does not want to name names.
“The most important thing is you have to have somebody who would be a great president, but after that you want somebody who can help you with legislation, getting it through, etc. etc. etc.,” he continued.
Trump concluded by saying he isn’t thinking too much about naming a Vice President yet because he’s more focused on winning the race himself.
“I do want somebody that’s political because I want to get lots of great legislation, that we all want passed, that’s just sitting there — for years and years and years we have things sitting there that would be so good. Including proper healthcare and other things,” Trump concluded.
