Trump at odds with the Republican Party after new scathing report is released


Donald Trump is known for going against the grain. But this time, he’s facing off against his own party.

And Trump is at odds with the Republican Party after a new scathing report is released.

In the near future, American voters will finally have their answer on who former President Donald Trump’s running mate will be.

He’s expected to make his decision around the time of the Republican National Convention in mid-July.

Trump’s short list of VP candidates has already been released, but it seems as though not every Republican agrees with the list.

According to a new I&I/TIPP Poll, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), former Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, and Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX), are GOP voters’ top four picks to be Trump’s running mate.

All four of those names do not appear on Trump’s vice presidential short list, underscoring some disagreement among the Republican base and the former president on who his next VP will be.

Recently, it was reported that Trump’s campaign is in the midst of vetting a list of vice presidential candidates.

None of the four names previously mentioned were involved in that vetting process.

The I&I/TIPP Poll also details in what order those four names were chosen among Republicans.

The order is as follows: Gov. DeSantis at 14%, Haley at 11%, Ramaswamy at 8%, and Abbott at 7%.

The poll also asked participants about Trump’s decision making process regarding picking a running mate.

“Will Trump seek a running mate who in the White House will provide him with strong political and policy backing, and serve as a sounding board?” the survey said.

“Or will Trump, with his keen deal-making acumen and go-it-alone bravado, be open to selecting someone with selective demographic appeal to help with outreach to groups to win the election, but then give him or her little to do as vice president?”

It’s highly unlikely that DeSantis would accept the role as Trump’s VP. He has noted in the past that he did not run for president this election cycle to be number 2.

Nikki Haley is another candidate that likely wouldn’t be picked.

Many Trump supporters, including the former president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., have expressed their displeasure with Haley and her ties to the GOP establishment.

So for now, it looks like we’ll have to wait and see who Donald Trump ends up picking.

He could very well pull a major surprise and pick someone no one is expecting.

Or he could also pick a candidate that most everyone had their eyes on.
