Trump vice presidential candidate rejects offer in a move that left everyone speechless


The former president has a growing list of candidates to be his running mate. But this individual just made their decision.

And a Trump vice presidential candidate rejected an offer in a move that left everyone speechless.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has been considered a possible pick for Donald Trump’s running mate in the 2024 presidential election.

Gabbard has separated from the Democrat Party since she ran for president in 2020 as a Democratic candidate. She now considers herself an independent and has come to agree with Trump on various policies.

However, Trump isn’t the only one who’s considered picking Gabbard as their running mate.

Independent candidate for president Robert F. Kennedy Jr. reportedly sent out an offer to Gabbard to be his vice president.

The former Rep. turned down the offer and didn’t explain why when speaking to ABC News recently.

“I met with Kennedy several times, and we have become good friends,” Gabbard said to the news outlet.

“He asked if I would be his running mate. After careful consideration, I respectfully declined.”

Kennedy ultimately picked Nicole Shanahan as his running mate. Shanahan is the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

She’s also been a major Democrat donor and contributed a lot of funds to the Joe Biden campaign in 2020. Shanahan helped to fund Kennedy’s Super Bowl ad that ran earlier this year.

Other names Kennedy was considering include NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura.

A source that’s close to Kennedy’s campaign confirmed to ABC News that Gabbard was indeed a potential pick for a vice presidential candidate for Kennedy.

“There were definitely meetings, but it didn’t work out,” the source said.

“We talked to a bunch of people. Tulsi’s a rock star no matter what.”

Even though she shot down an offer from Kennedy to be his VP, Gabbard still hasn’t shut the door on possibly being Trump’s.

Several weeks ago she actually expressed somewhat of a desire to serve with the former president as his VP.

“I would be open to that,” Gabbard said in an interview on Fox News with host Jesse Watters.

“My mission is to serve our country. I wanna be in a position to solve problems, Jesse, and we got a lot of ’em to solve.”
