Donald Trump won’t put any Democrats on his list of potential vice presidential running mates, he said Friday.
He clarified a day after Ben Carson, the former candidate who now backs Trump, told the Wall Street Journal that Trump plans to consider independent and even Democratic options for a running mate. But Trump swiftly vetoed those ideas, promising to pick “a great Republican.”
“I want to have a great ticket,” Trump said on “Fox and Friends.” “The Democrats have been in there a long time; the economy is terrible.”
