running mate:

    Donald Trump has picked a new running mate. Yes, Vice President Mike Pence is still around. And no, the near-constant chatter about former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley did not come to pass. But since Saturday, when Trump nominated her to the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett has become Trump’s new running mate. No matter how you slice it, it’s now “Trump-Coney Barrett 2020.” For the next month, the 48-year-old 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals judge is tied to the political hip of the 45th president.

    President Trump is calling reports claiming he wanted his daughter Ivanka Trump to be his 2016 running mate “ridiculous.” “Now Fake News @CNN is actually reporting that I wanted my daughter, Ivanka, to run with me as my Vice President in 2016 Election. Wrong and totally ridiculous,” the president said on Twitter shortly before midnight Monday. “These people are sick!” CNN reported about the vice president story based on earlier reporting by Bloomberg News and the Washington Post. Both publications cited information contained in a new book, “Wicked Game,” being released on Oct. 13 by Trump’s former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates. According to Gates’ book, top campaign aides in June 2016 were considering who Trump, then the presumptive Republican...
    President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday night that reports stating he wanted his eldest daughter Ivanka Trump as his running mate were both 'sick' and wrong'. 'Fake News @CNN is actually reporting that I wanted my daughter, Ivanka, to run with me as my Vice President in 2016 Election. Wrong and totally ridiculous. These people are sick!' the president tweeted. The story actually featured in the Washington Post on Monday, which CNN then paraphrased in their own report. Donald Trump tweeted late Monday night there is no truth he wanted his daughter Ivanka Trump to be on the 2016 ticket as his running mate Ivanka Trump with her father at the 2016 Republican National Convention - she served as...
    President Donald Trump allegedly considered his daughter Ivanka to be his running mate during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to claims made in a forthcoming book by former Trump campaign official Rick Gates. The discussion supposedly arose in June 2016 when Trump’s team was discussing a pick for vice president.

    President Trump wanted to make his oldest daughter his 2016 running mate, a campaign insider claims in a new book. Rick Gates, Trump's former deputy campaign chairman, writes that the president pushed Ivanka Trump to be his pick for vice president for weeks, insisting she would fare well with the base of the Republican Party. "I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?” Trump asked, describing his 34-year-old daughter at the time as "bright, she's smart, she's beautiful, and the people would love her!" Gates claims that Trump was so excited by the idea that his team polled the idea of Ivanka as his running mate twice, in excerpts of his book, first reviewed by Bloomberg...
    Roger Sollenberger September 28, 2020 4:45PM (UTC) Donald Trump repeatedly suggested during the 2016 campaign that his daughter, Ivanka Trump, should be his running mate, according to a new book by former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates. "I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?" Trump reportedly asked a group of senior advisers in June 2016. "She's bright, she's smart, she's beautiful, and the people would love her!" : The idea was not a joke, according to Gates. Trump pressed his advisers repeatedly over the weeks leading up to the Republican convention that summer, insisting that Ivanka, at the time a 34-year-old real estate and fashion executive with no political or policymaking experience, would be a hit, while resisting other options, including then-Indiana Gov....

    Donald Trump wanted to name his daughter Ivanka as his running mate in the 2016 election, a new book reveals, and even had his campaign conduct polls on the matter. As Trump's aides, in June 2016, talked about who to name as the vice presidential candidate, Trump had his own thoughts, according to a forthcoming book by Rick Gates, excepts of which were published by Bloomberg and The Washington Post.  'I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?' Trump said. 'Ivanka should be vice president.' 'All heads turned toward her, and she just looked surprised.

    Loading the player... With the November election just weeks away, President Donald Trump is out on the campaign trail to condemn his Democratic opponent Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris. At a campaign appearance in the battleground state of Wisconsin, where he won by a slim margin in 2016, Trump tried to cast an ominous message about Harris, saying “if a woman is going to become the first president of the United States, it can’t be her,” Business Insider reports. “That would rip our country apart,” Trump said in front of a crowd. “This is not what people want. And she comes in through the back door — this would not be what people want, especially...
    Kamala Harris has proven a trickier-than-expected target for Republicans trying to define the Democratic ticket ahead of November’s election, even as she and Joe Biden have recently seemed confused about which of them is leading the ticket. The Californian Biden tapped as his running mate was once rated the most liberal senator — “She is even to the left of Socialist Bernie Sanders,” a Republican National Committee statement said last month — and Democratic primary voters quickly soured on her presidential campaign earlier this year. This would seem to be fertile ground for attack ads or opposition researchers. Yet Harris, 55, remains above ground in her favorability ratings. A Reuters/Ipsos poll earlier this month that showed 58% having a favorable...
    President Donald Trump on Thursday warned that Sen. Kamala Harris might become the President of the United States if former Vice President Joe Biden was elected and unable to finish his presidency. “If a woman is going to become the first president of the United States, it can’t be her,” Trump said. “That would rip our country apart. This is not what people want. And she comes in through the back door.” The president spoke about Harris, Biden’s running mate, during a campaign rally in Wisconsin on Thursday night. “This would not be what people want, especially because it’s her. The president recalled that Biden referred to a “Harris-Biden administration” hinting that the former vice president believed that Harris was...
    President Trump and … “Spike” 2020?! Michigan military and overseas ballots were downloaded from a state database Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020, listing an incorrect running mate for President Donald Trump. More than 400 military and oversees ballots in Michigan had the wrong running mate for President Trump when they were downloaded from a state database on Tuesday. Instead of Vice President Mike Pence, the ballots listed Jeremy Cohen, the Libertarian Party VP candidate, whose nickname is “Spike.” The “temporary error” was fixed within 90 minutes on Tuesday, said Tracy Wimmer, a spokeswoman for Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. But it’s not clear how many of the ballots were actually mailed out to voters before the glitch was caught. “Approximately...

    Former President Obama offered vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris some tips about running alongside Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “So tell me about Joe and your relationship with Joe, and what do I need to know?” Sen. Harris (D-Calif.) asked Obama in a video posted Tuesday. “Like, what’s the thing about the ice cream? He loves ice cream. Tell me about that,” she continued, laughing. “Well, listen, ice cream is big. Pasta with red sauce, he can go deep on that. He really does like those aviator glasses, he knows he looks good in them,” Obama responded jokingly. The five-minute virtual conversation marked the 44th president’s first campaign appearance with the Democratic running mate. Obama, who successfully ran for the...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Daily Briefing,” White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows stated that 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden only denounced rioting because he sees the riots “as a political liability,” Meadows also stated, “it’s his running mate and people associated with his running mate that actually were bailing people out that got arrested for the rioting that happened in the first place.” Meadows said, “Joe Biden sees this as a political liability, which is why he’s finally, after 90 days in Portland rioting, and why, month after month, things have gone on, he’s remained largely silent. In fact, if anything, he’s condoned it and said that there should be more...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden quoted Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong this weekend. Biden joined ABC News’s Robin Roberts on Sunday and was asked about choosing California Sen.

    Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris once expressed support for women who accused presidential nominee Joe Biden of inappropriate behavior, so where are all the “I believers” now, Sean Hannity asked Thursday night. In her Democratic National Convention remarks Wednesday, Harris announced that she “knows a predator” when she sees one and that there is “no vaccine for racism.” FLASHBACK: KAMALA HARRIS SAID SHE BELIEVED WOMEN WHO ACCUSED BIDEN OF INAPPROPRIATE TOUCHING “A few months ago, she said she believed Biden’s accusers,” the “Hannity” host said. “So what do you really see in your running mate, Senator Harris?” One of Biden’s accusers, Tara Reade, accused the Democratic Party in an interview with Fox News Digital this week of being “complicit” in “gaslighting” survivors of sexual misconduct.

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren used her Democratic National Committee speech on Wednesday to encourage voters to back Joe Biden in November — an election she cast as a referendum on the handling of the coronavirus pandemic. “COVID-19 was [President] Trump’s biggest test,” she said in pre-taped remarks. “He failed miserably.” Warren cited both America’s staggering coronavirus death toll, and the economic devastation in its wake. “This crisis is bad, and it didn’t have to be this way,” she said. “This crisis is on Donald Trump, and the Republicans who enabled him. On Nov. 3rd, we will hold them all accountable. “We all need to be in the fight to get Joe and Kamala [Harris, Biden’s running mate] elected. And...

    A Rasmussen Reports poll released on Wednesday showed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s lead over Donald Trump dip by 2 percent into a four-point edge — 48 to 44. As noted by Breitbart, the drop comes after the former vice president named California Sen. Kamala Harris as his partner in the race. In the previous Rasmussen Reports survey, before Harris was announced as his vice presidential choice, Biden lead Trump by 6 percentage points — 49 to 43. “With the Democratic National Convention in full swing and a new running mate by his side, Joe Biden holds a slightly narrower lead over President Trump in the latest Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey,” the pollster wrote.

    Joe Biden selected a running mate based on the color of her skin. He rejected other candidates based on the color of their skin. He did this openly and without apology. Think about that for a moment. Let that sink in. In the year 2020, more than six decades after America desegregated public schools, a nominee for president from a major political party brazenly displayed outright racism in picking a running mate. It is a mockery of everything Martin Luther King fought for. A perversion of the entire civil rights movement. For most Americans today, their parents would have spanked their little fannies raw if they had ever displayed such blatant racism on the schoolyard playground. But the former vice president...

    During an Oval Office interview with The New York Post, Donald Trump took aim at Kamala Harris, who was recently selected to be Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate. The real estate mogul compared the California Senator to Hillary Clinton, who he defeated in 2016 to take the White House. “She’s a bad version of Hillary,” he said. “She’s a person that will say whatever is necessary and in the end in gets her in trouble. I think she changes her policy, she changes her tune, for every race, depending on who she needs. She’s a user and she’s not a talented politician.” Trump also took aim at Harris’ controversial record as a California prosecutor, when she oversaw over...
    The Biden campaign has raised $48 million in the 48 hours following Joe Biden’s (D) announcement of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate, Reuters reported on Thursday. After weeks of speculation, Biden formally announced Harris as his running mate on Tuesday, describing her as a “fearless fighter for the little guy” and “one of the country’s finest public servants.” While the choice drew ire from some on the far-left who contend that the Democrat establishment continues to snub that faction of the party, many establishment Democrats expressed joy and demonstrated support.
