According to insiders, former President Donald Trump could choose Republican New York Representative Elise Stefanik as his vice president for the upcoming presidential race. Stefanik’s unwavering support for Trump during his impeachment trial and New York indictment, along with becoming one of the first GOP members to endorse Trump before he even announced his candidacy, make her an ideal candidate for the role.
Trump’s team is looking for someone who is loyal, and Stefanik undoubtedly fits that description. A source close to the former president cited loyalty as the most desired quality in a vice president, given that past disloyalty caused some issues in the White House. As a result, Stefanik’s commitment to Trump could be enough to earn her the VP pick.
Mike Caputo, a long-time friend and adviser to Trump, expressed his support for Stefanik by calling her “young, dynamic, really bright and engaging” with “more testicular fortitude” than most men in the Republican Party. He even went as far as to argue that Stefanik could potentially make a better case for Trump than the candidate could make himself.
I stand with President Trump.

Even though the election is still a ways off, some sources suggest Trump may already be eying Stefanik for a more prominent role in the future. Trump predicts that Stefanik could potentially hold the presidency in 2028, given her accelerated rise to power after becoming the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in 2015.
Stefanik’s success is undeniable, and her position on various committees, including the Armed Services committee, the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, showcase her commitment to making America stronger both domestically and internationally.
Trump has yet to make a final decision, but with Stefanik’s attributes and undying commitment to Trump and the Republican party, there’s a good chance that she might just be the perfect VP candidate for the job. After all, the qualities that Trump is seeking in a VP candidate all seem embodied within Stefanik’s abilities, as her intelligence, charisma, and TV-ready persona make her stand out from the crowd.
