(TruthAndLiberty) – Former President Donald Trump’s former senior adviser Kellyanne Conway wrote in an op-ed published on Monday that after winning the GOP nomination in the 2024 race he should select a person of color as his running mate.
Conway had served as Trump’s campaign manager in 2016 and she later had a place as counselor in the Trump administration. When discussing possible running mate options for the former President she argued that Sens. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Marco Rubio, as well as Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) were possible options.
In The New York Times op-ed Conway stated that Trump’s pick for vice president should be someone who would help him not only govern in his second term but also win the general election. As she pointed out, the border crisis, problems with the economy, high crimes, parents’ rights, and wars across the globe have resulted in the chaos that the VP pick of the former President will need to be able to handle both abroad and domestically.
She also pointed out that his running mate needed to be someone who would be able to “mitigate the damage” done by the abortion issue which has allowed the Democrats to have a number of electoral victories following Roe v. Wade.
Conway pointed out that considering all of this, if she was to give Trump advice she would suggest that a person of color should be his running mate.
In 2016, Conway had pushed for Vice President Mike Pence to be selected by Trump as his running mate.
