( – Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) stated that he was open to the possibility of becoming the running mate of former President Donald Trump. This recent statement came only a few days after Scott announced his full endorsement of the former President in the 2024 presidential race.

Scott, who dropped out of the presidential race in November, was asked about those who wanted to see him serve as the vice president under Trump. Specifically, many pointed out that on Friday during Trump’s rally in New Hampshire, there had been a number of people who were chanting for Scott to be the VP following his endorsement of the former President.

Scott, during an appearance on “State of the Union” with CNN’s Dana Bash, argued that the only thing he wanted was a second Trump presidency and a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate and House, so that the poor children growing up in underprivileged neighborhoods, like he had grown up, would be given a chance to receive quality education. He added that he wanted children to be able to look ahead to the future and think that the U.S. was their “oyster.”

Bash proceeded to ask Scott whether he wanted to become Trump’s Vice President to which Scott argued that this is what he really wanted and that if he could help that happen by giving his endorsement and campaigning for Trump in his state over the next month, that is what he would be doing.

Bash then said that according to Scott’s answer, he seemed open to being VP and not rejecting the idea, to which Scott argued that she could take his statement however she wanted.
