Sen. Bob Corker withdraws from Trump VP consideration

Sen. Bob Corker withdraws from Trump VP consideration

Donald Trump told Fox News Wednesday that 10 people were left on his list of potential running mates, including two generals and some names "that haven't surfaced yet". Joni Ernst (Iowa), who, according to multiple reports, would rather remain in the Senate. Bob Corker Ivanka Trump would be a great pick to share the ticket ticket with the presumptive Republican nominee.

And Corker is a serious person: as a Republican who had a less hawkish vision of USA foreign policy, he had played a central role in numerous ongoing national security debates of our times. "And Iowa is where my heart is", Ernst said.

"I'm just getting started here... So we have a lot of interest in it, believe me".

The Tennessee senator and chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told reporters that he "very much appreciated being considered in that way" but had decided the job of vice president just wasn't for him. Without singling out Trump, she said, "I would like to think our presidential candidates would at least respect other people, whether male or female". "We had a very open conversation about that, and actually, we have been very candid about it from the very beginning of our meetings", Corker told The Post. However, with Mike Pence in his team, a candidate who regularly touts his Christian faith, using the Bible as an argument when supporting his disapproval for the gay community, for example, Trump would have a big advantage. "He's gone back now and served as the chief executive of a very important state, a state that Donald Trump is going to need to win in order to be successful in this election". On Wednesday, he told the press he had withdrawn his name from consideration as the businessman's running mate, something The Daily Beast has confirmed.

Could Donald Trump keep the White House in the family?

Just two weeks from the Republican National Convention, Trump's vice presidential search - and speculation about who he'll pick - is at a fever pitch.

Later Tuesday, Corker flew with Trump to a campaign rally in the swing state of North Carolina, where Trump introduced him to the cheering crowd as "a great friend of mine, somebody respected by everybody".

Lewandowski, now a CNN political commentator, emphasized the importance of Trump tapping a politician with ties to Washington, who could help advance his legislative agenda in Congress.

Trump mentioned his weekend meetings with Iowa Sen. "I would love to assist him out on the trail".
