Donald Trump is the favorite to be the Republican nominee for president in 2024, or at least that’s what the polls show. The former president is easily ahead of his competitors at national and state levels, which is why many analysts already assume that the magnate will become the GOP nominee for the third consecutive time. In that context, some names have already begun to circulate to accompany him on the ballot, including Tucker Carlson.
Apart from their great personal relationship, the rumors gained a foothold recently when Trump was directly asked about the possibility. “Would you consider Tucker Carlson on your list of vice presidents?” he was asked during his appearance on “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.” The Republican responded as follows: “I really like Tucker. I guess I would. I think he would say he would do it because he has great common sense.”
“When they say that you are conservative or that I am conservative, it is not that we are conservative. We have common sense. We want to have secure borders. We want to have a wall because walls work,” he added.
Just days later, the duo appeared in public at the UFC 295 event, where they entered alongside Dana White, Kid Rock and Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., to the great surprise of the attendees, who received them with applause.

After a brief moment of disbelief in Madison Square Garden, the screen focused on the procession that entered the stadium to take their seats in the first row. Trump waved, shook his fist and even greeted some of the attendees.
According to reports, the Republican flew to the Big Apple after finishing his campaign event in New Hampshire, where he reinforced his international rhetoric and reminded his followers what the world of geopolitics was like while he was in the White House.
“For four years in a row under the Trump administration, I kept America safe. I kept Israel safe. I kept Ukraine safe and I kept the world safe,” he said.
