Firebrand pro-Trump Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has recently been reported to have spoken extensively with 45th President Donald Trump about joining his ticket in 2024, according to New York Times Magazine writer Robert Draper. A Trump-Greene ticket could be likely, as Trump has been reported to be considering a female running mate in his next run for the White House. Names that have been dropped include Rep. Greene, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD), among others.
“To be fair, Ali, it’s very likely that Trump has had this conversation with half a dozen other people too,” he said.
What makes Greene’s talk significant, he continued, is that the conversations have occurred over the course of months and the Georgia congresswoman possesses something Trump values deeply: loyalty. Trump’s relationship with his last running mate, Mike Pence, soured following the January 6 Capitol riot, with the former president blasting Pence for not supporting his election fraud claims more.
“What Greene possesses that Trump so craves is loyalty. She has always been there for Trump. She has always had his back and after his experience with his last running mate, Mike Pence, it’s clear that he’s going to prize loyalty above all else, so I wouldn’t count it out,” Draper said of Greene and Trump.
Trump previously claimed Pence committed “political suicide” when he certified the 2020 presidential election results and claimed he would not run with the Republican again. [READ NEXT: Trump Gives Major 2024 Hint]
CNN and other political sites have speculated Stefanik to be the “most likely to succeed” in a 2024 run with Trump, but it is unclear if the New York congresswoman would give up her GOP conference chair post to take the second-in-command vice president spot. If she did, it could set her up for a successful 2028 presidential run.
