COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA: Senator Tim Scott has dropped another big hint that he’ll likely be Donald Trump’s VP.

While talking with Newsmax host Eric Bolling, the Republican senator from South Carolina said, “I hear there’s a debate in July. If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you. We’ll see what happens.”

Scott was referencing a potential vice presidential debate to be held this summer, to which Bolling asked whether he’ll be Trump’s Number two.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” the senator responded with a laugh.

Since Donald Trump and President Joe Biden have agreed on two head-to-head debates, scheduled on June 27, and another on September 10, there’s also a proposal on having a vice presidential debate in July, from Biden’s camp.

There have been reports that Scott is a possible candidate in the VP race, and a source told the New York Post he’s doing “everything he can to build his relationship with Donald Trump in an attempt to get picked as VP.”

As far as the former president is concerned, Trump has said he’ll share his choice among the 50 shortlisted candidates around the Republican National Convention, which will take place in Milwaukee between July 15 and 18, as per the North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, who is also eyeing the VP’s spot.

Many believe Scott is amongst Trump’s favorite, “He’s a much better representative for me than he is a representative for himself,” the former president said about him during a campaign rally in South Carolina earlier this year.

“And it’s true. And that’s a great compliment. And you know why? Because he’s a high-quality person. He doesn’t like talking about himself,” Trump added.

Tim Scott has been advocating for Trump after withdrawing from the presidential race in November last year.

The South Carolina senator has also started a weekly video series, called ‘America’s Starting Five’, where the other four black Republicans in Congress try to spread the GOP message to African American voters for the upcoming November 5 election.


Internet reacts to Tim Scott's hint at being the next VP of Donald Trump 

Netizens gave mixed reactions to Tim Scott as Donald Trump's possible VP.

One user said on X, "NOPE... I like Tim Scott but he is not going to be the VP."

"Please, No. Trump's Achilles heal is not knowing how to hire. This guy is bad news and can't be trusted," the second user opined. 

Another commented, "There are worse choices. I happen to think there are a few better choices, but Scott is at least in the 'acceptable' range."

One remarked, "There has also been rumors of Vivek for VP. Very discouraging rumors for sure. Let’s go with Ben Carson who is a Patriot and Christian. Need to keep praying for our Country."

"Good. He’s Perfect for the Job," felt another.
