Will Trump Choose Tulsi Gabbard As His Vice President?

Published

on

After former President Trump notched his fifth straight Republican Presidential Primary victory in Michigan on Tuesday, receiving over 68% of the vote, speculation has started to grow as to who Trump will select as his running mate heading into the 2024 Election.

Las Vegas odds show that Trump is the odds-favorite to win the 2024 Presidential election, meaning that whoever he selects as Vice President would most likely be the favorite to represent the Republican ticket in a distant 2028 Election. Being that Trump has already served a term as President, if elected in 2024, he would not be eligible to run for President in 2028.

Whoever Trump selects as his running mate will most likely have the best odds of becoming the face of the Republican Party after Trump is gone, making the decision extremely consequential.

Among the names reportedly being considered for the job include former Trump Administration official Ben Carson, who served as U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump White House. Carson also ran for President in 2016, and prior to his political career, was among the most highly respected neurosurgeons in the world.

Other individuals reportedly being considered for the position include Representative Elise Stefanik, former 2024 Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

While all of these candidates are highly qualified, and maybe unsurprising, there is one candidate on the list making headlines like nobody else.

Trump is also reportedly considering selecting former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard as his running mate in 2024.

Gabbard represented Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District from 2013-2021. From 2013-2016, Gabbard served as a Vice Chair to the Democrat National Committee.

She eventually ran for President during the 2020 Election, being defeated by Joe Biden in the race. The Lt. Colonel made headlines during that race by challenging current Vice President Kamala Harris in the Primary debates, highlighting Harris’ prosecutorial record on marijuana arrests.

Gabbard pointed out, during a nationally televised Democrat Primary debate, that Harris had prosecuted over 1,500 Californians for marijuana use, but admitted to smoking it herself on the campaign trail, even laughing about the situation.

After losing her Presidential bid, Gabbard was alienated from the Democrat Party, and retired from Congress in 2021. It should be noted that, if selected by Trump as Vice President, Gabbard would once again take on Kamala Harris in a potential Vice Presidential debate.

In October of 2022, Gabbard announced that she left the Democrat Party entirely to become an Independent, telling viewers during an episode of her podcast,

I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic party. It’s now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers, driven by cowardly wokeness.

Gabbard, a combat veteran who was once a ranking member of the Democrat Party leadership, has pivoted on many key issues in recent years, publicly denouncing the Party that she once helped to lead.

The former Democrat Congresswoman is a vocal opponent of U.S. involvement in the war in Ukraine, telling Sean Hannity in 2022,

If the moral obligation is to do what we can to end the suffering of the Ukrainian people, who are suffering death and destruction, it’s to bring about an end to this war as quickly as possible. President Biden has failed to do that, and he has failed the American people, the people of Ukraine, and the world in doing that.

Being somebody who served as a combat veteran in the Iraq war, Gabbard is obviously committed to avoiding conflict, something that former President Trump has been vocal about. Trump famously said about the war in Ukraine that his solution would be to, “stop the killing.”

On many key issues, including the Israel-Hamas conflict, the war in Ukraine, and the Second Amendment, Gabbard and Trump may now agree more than they disagree on the major political issues of our time, possibly highlighting a larger American political realignment heading into the 2024 Election.

Adding to speculation that she may be on the shortlist to become Vice President, Gabbard is allegedly scheduled to be a keynote speaker at an event for the 917 Society at Trump’s Mar-A-Lago club on March 7th.

Controversial political operative Roger Stone has said that he is ‘intrigued’ by the idea that Trump, who has been close friends with Stone for over 40 years, would select Gabbard as his running mate.

During a recent appearance Stone made speaking before a local Republican club in Florida, he made a comparison between Gabbard and former Republican President Ronald Reagan, who Stone worked for in the 1980s. Stone said at that event,

“She’s a LT. Col in the U.S. Army Reserves. She is a veteran of both Iraq and Kuwait. She is a former Democrat, former Democrat member of Congress. She is a strong proponent of the Second Amendment…

My friends say, “Well, she was a Democrat! She was a liberal Democrat!”

Folks, Ronald Reagan was a Democrat. In fact, he was a very liberal Democrat. He was a ‘New Deal’ Democrat.”

Roger Stone on Tulsi Gabbard VP Speculation

Stone also interviewed Gabbard on his WABC radio on February 25th, 2024.

Further highlighting her split from the Democratic Party, during a recent appearance at CPAC, Gabbard said about the coming 2024 Election,

It’s the Democratic elite and the Swamp Creatures in Washington who are doing all that they possibly can to keep us, the American People from a very simple thing, having freedom to choose who we want to be our next president

Tulsi Gabbard at CPAC

Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has changed quite a bit over the last decade, a change that has pushed her into agreement on many major political issues with former President Donald Trump.

Considering that Trump is seeing a higher popularity rating than when he was in Office, Gabbard’s drift towards Trump may signal an overall political sentiment of the Nation that could manifest itself at the 2024 ballot box.

It appears, by all indicators, that Tulsi Gabbard is a serious contender for Vice President. It remains to be seen who Trump will select, but if he chooses Gabbard, it will be extremely interesting to see how much of the Independent and Democrat vote that she attracts to the Trump ticket.

      I listened to Tulsi’s interview on CBN and was very impressed. Very articulate (unlike Kamala), is pro-lie, pro 2A, anti-trans, anti-war, pro cops. However, unless she has changed her pro climate change position, I couldn’t support her. That’s a deal breaker.

    • Jim Dunnigan

      July 2, 2024 at 11:05 am

      I think that would be a good choice she’s a patriot not all their policies align but that’s okay there’s nothing wrong with differences of opinion and I would believe that she would take us the next 12 years and keep the world safe

    • Nadra Fischer

      Yes Gabbard! She’s the one!

      • Leroy

          July 12, 2024 at 10:22 pm

          She’s better than Nicki and I could be forgiving if her climate change stance is tempered. Hey Donald’s prolife stance is not eye to eye for some Republicans. It’s called a compromise that gets us results!

      I think Tulsi would be a great VP pick. A warrior, a patriot, a defender of individual liberty and a foe of the Radical Left and other totalitarianism. I haven’t heard much about her economic views but I suspect she would think everyday Americans could spend their money better than the Swamp.

      She may WELL BECOME A HISTORIC FIGURE as Mother Of Our Country.! Who but a Mother fights harder to protect Her Children in Nature..! TULSI GABBARD FOR PRESIDENT MAGA 2028

  6. David Lopez

    The best option is Tulsi Gabbard! She is military,she knows the democratic plan and she has her head that makes the most since

  7. Kathy Schulz

    June 23, 2024 at 10:47 pm

    I hope not. I still remember her answer to the question, “Should illegal border crosses get free medical care?” She raised her hand in affirmation. She was not in favor of border closure or reduction.

  8. Joel Begay

    Tulsi for VP

  9. Stephen V

    June 24, 2024 at 9:49 am

    I’m a traditionalist that prefers a male VP. The roll of women in government should be limited in the way God intended. The push toward a popular idea is fraught with errors that are not Biblical and I’m not sorry for stating this.

    Tulsi Gabbar , is a female Trump, as crazy as he is, and worry only for power, she tried everywhere , and end up with the criminal, that prove she has no morals , and want to be President, she not even care for Trump , but the illusion that since Trump will died soon where is in prison, or any of his health issues, like the advance dementia! She will be on the waiting! That woman is smart but messed up !

    • GrenanBerrit

      July 11, 2024 at 4:03 am

      Well that settles it if she is a female versiin of trump then im in because he dud the most for our country and peace around the world then any president in my lifetime and i was born in 1971 (you do the math lol) and he did all this while being illegally spied on, fake investigation one after another, news the entire time lying and covering up for the real criminals and pushing all the anti trump narratives for the dems. As for him being a criminal they weaponized the legal system against him for miscatagorizing line entries and the one person who could defend and explain these matters, his accountant, funny they would not let him testify but people that were completely unrelated to this case were paraded through to testify. Use your head if it smells fishy dont go blindly believing everything you hear silly

  11. Patricia Mullins

    June 24, 2024 at 3:46 pm

    I’ve been praying and trusting, President Trump, you will close Tulsi for your running mate! Such a fine candidate for VP.

  12. John

    June 24, 2024 at 10:30 pm

    No! Trump is not a conservative and adding another non conservative would be a big mistake

  13. Blazer

    Gabbert is the only one that will bting more voters in. None of the other potentials will change anyone’s mind who is undecided

  14. Terry Ward

    June 25, 2024 at 12:10 pm

    Tulsi Gabbard knows the Evils of Her old party. She like Ronald Reagan could no longer swallow their lies and REBUKED Her membership. She is Fair, Honest, Wise and quietly POWERFUL knowing Common Sense can easily overcome left-wing insanity. TRUMP-GABBARD MAGA 2024.

  15. Dustin Elrod

    He should choose her

  16. Donna Allard

    June 26, 2024 at 11:55 am

    No! She had ties to communist countries. Read, White House Reds by Trevor Loudon. All those that think she’s a great choice will quickly change their minds. A leopard doesn’t change its spots. I would not trust her for a second. And have you thought that she could possibly be a “plant”? Don’t put anything past the evil demonrats.

    Gosh, I certainly hope not. She’s a RINO!! Will say anything in public favor. There are many more greater people to choose from.

  19. Tonja Hunter

    June 28, 2024 at 11:31 am

    Whoever Trump decides to pick as his VP choice, I am sure that he has thought through all the possible highs and lows. Main thing is to get on with the business at hand. If you’re willing to vote for Trump, you should have enough faith in his ability to choose a proper person for that position.

    • Patricia Lindblad

      June 29, 2024 at 6:44 pm

      I believe his choice should be Vivek Ramaswaney or Tulsi Gabbard. Both compliment Donald Trump.

  20. Pete Gravelle

    June 29, 2024 at 12:58 pm

    Yes Tulsie would be a good choice

  21. David Jones

    June 30, 2024 at 10:28 am

    Yes, Tulsi Gabbard is absolutely the best choice! She caught my eye when she was a Democratic candidate in the last election. I recently finished her book, which confirmed the promise I suspected was there. Her courage to leave the Democratic Party shows the strength of her convictions and her moral compass to take the right path, even when it doesn’t follow the crowd. She would make a great Vice President.

  22. Ron Meadows

    July 1, 2024 at 12:41 am

    Gabbard is too strong for Trump. He will take Brumford? She would be too overwhelming in public for him. He must always be #1. That’s why he chose Pence partially. Pence helped him with the evangelical vote and was always in the background. Gabbard has no plan to be in anyone’s background. If the Republicans could help it they would choose Rubio.

  23. Gloria E Conway

    Tulsi Gabbard for Vice President or Vivek

    I used to be an admirer of Tulsi until I read her biography. Suggest you read it and learn more about her beliefs
    before supporting her.

  26. Angeline Boyd

    July 2, 2024 at 1:51 am

    I hope not… she hasn’t the experience RFK jr. has nor can she match him in his public service fighting corruption in court. All he would gain is the woman’s vote who are only interested in a female presidency not what’s best for our country today!

  27. Paula Vodicka

      My thoughts were why Trump hadn’t mentioned her already for a good choice.

    • GrenanBerrit

      July 11, 2024 at 4:13 am

      I like him as well, alot. My first choice for vp would be trey goudi, then maybe jim jordon or sarah huckabe. 3 names that have proven they are above being corrupted. You can trust them and they have squekee clean backgrounds which will be handy when the swamp goes on endlessly trying to drum up crap to keep them to busy to investigate the real criminals in the swamp.

  28. Douglas Maulbetsch

    July 4, 2024 at 2:02 pm

    Yes, I think TG would be a very good pick. We need to invite the moderate democrats into the Republican Party. Draw the line on communism and woke policies. There are several that should get cabinet positions too!

      Really my questiin is who is the ahole who recorded locker room conversations so in case 2⁹ years later one of them made president and they could use against him. I guess in your life you have never said anything that others would consider sexist or racist or what have you. I am honest enough to admit i have in jest of course but i wouldnt want it all played back to me out of context. And its not a crime to be a rockstar and have p throwed at you nor is it to be rich and thrown at you. Its a shame women do that and make it exceptable for men to expect it. Look at all the music videos that our young men and women watch and the songs they listen to saying the same things aķnd worse but thats fine. We cant pick and chose when we want to be super judgemental then acceptable later i guess unless youre the bigman.

  30. Alan Alexander

    July 4, 2024 at 10:14 pm

    Yes! Tulsi is a strong minded person and a good leader! Her time in the military and service to our country shows her dedication and love for this country.

  31. Carolyn Jones

    July 5, 2024 at 11:44 am

    He’ll NO. She was elected as a democrat and defended democratic policies. They kicked her out and she still didn’t chose to be a conservative. The best she could do to get r elected again was become an independent. Fool me once….this is twice its on us. Don’t be an idiot

  32. Robert Trussell

    July 5, 2024 at 1:40 pm

    She is still a democrat. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. We need someone like Senator Kennedy from Louisiana. Smartest man in D C..

  33. Stephen R Slavik

    July 5, 2024 at 8:42 pm

    No way is she any type of sheep! I would follow that so-called she into battle anytime. There is one thing we can count on, she believes in the 7 corps Army values. For all the civilians out there the acronym is LDRSHIP. Loyalty,duty, respect,selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. Therefore, if you want any of those traits in a leader then she is the one and if anything happens to Trump, she is the one that can step into his shoes and protect America. She is my kind of sheep!!!!

  34. JoeFlorida

    July 6, 2024 at 12:37 pm

    Yes, agree, she is the one.

  35. Rodger Sweet

    Trump should be in jail and shouldn’t even be allowed to run for President again. He needs to go back to his acting career oh! Wait he’s acting now. It seems like our Government doesn’t have any rules and the Judge can’t make up his mind.

  39. Patricia Thompson

    July 10, 2024 at 8:15 am

    If it’s going to be a woman then Tulsa is the best choice! She would make a good president in the future! Have yo say Elon Musk would be a good VP to get this country out of debt!

    Vivek Ramaswamy Far more qualified with less baggage young accomplished energetic charismatic understands business. Four years in the swamp will give him the experience he needs to carry on Agenda 47 and hopefully implement much of Project 2025. He is ahead of President Trump regarding the NEED to abolish deep state bureaucracies.

  45. W. Perry Cooper III

    Tully would be a great pick for VP!!!

  46. Daniel Mendoza

    July 14, 2024 at 4:49 pm

    I think having Tulsi as VP would be the best thing for Trump and the country. I’m 100% for her being on Donald Trump’s ticket.
