Donald Trump now holds his biggest lead in the GOP primary.

That’s leading to speculation about who he will pick as his running mate.

And Donald Trump’s reported top Vice Presidential pick is sending shockwaves through the Washington, D.C. Swamp.

It’s a given that former President Donald Trump will not pick former Vice President Mike Pence to fill out the 2024 ticket.

Reports indicate that Trump is looking for a running mate who will be loyal to him and his agenda, and can perform well on TV.

Some Trump advisors floated the idea that he should pick a woman to help alleviate his weakness with suburban female voters. 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wants to be under consideration for a spot on the ticket.

Greene addressed the speculation Trump might pick her as his running mate when she asked whether she was considering running for the Senate in 2026.

“I haven’t made up my mind whether I will do that or not,” Greene told reporters about her decision to run for the U.S. Senate.

Greene then claimed she had her eyes on a position in a second Trump administration.

“I have a lot of things to think about,” Greene added. “Am I going to be a part of President Trump’s Cabinet if he wins? Is it possible that I’ll be VP?”

Rep. Greene said being considered as Trump’s running mate is “an honor,” and it would be something she would think about doing “very, very heavily.”

This past January, War Room host Steve Bannon floated Greene as a possible Trump running mate.

“This is no shrinking violet,” Bannon said at the time. “She’s ambitious — she’s not shy about that, nor should she be.”

“She sees herself on the short list for Trump’s VP,” he added. “Paraphrasing Cokie Roberts, when MTG looks in the mirror she sees a potential President smiling back.”

Greene entered Congress in 2020, and immediately established herself as one of Trump’s top loyalists and defenders.

That posture also earned her the burning hatred of the media, who has continuously smeared Greene, and even tried to goad Democrats into expelling her from Congress.

Those efforts have thus far failed.

But would Donald Trump really pick Marjorie Taylor Greene as his running mate?

The odds on that are low as Greene represents a safe red district and Trump would need to grow his coalition.
