Trump Has 'Sort of a Pretty Good Idea' on VP Choice, Drops a Big Clue

Former President Trump said he has a "pretty good idea" of his vice presidential pick. He plans to announce it at this summer's Republican National Convention.

Trump spoke with Fox News' Aishah Hasnie at the Republican National Committee headquarters in D.C. after meetings with the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Asked if his pick was at the meetings, Trump responded, "Probably. I don't want to go, but I think (it) will probably get announced during the convention. During the convention. There were some good people and, we have some very good people."

The convention will be July 15-18 in Milwaukee. Trump hinted Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin might be on the short list.

"And I think I could consider that," he said. "Yes. I haven't been asked that question, but he would be on that list."

Hasnie also inquired about his thoughts on President Biden as a father after Hunter Biden's gun charges.

"Well, I think it's a very serious thing," Trump said. "I understand that whole subject. I understand it pretty well because I've had it with people who have it in their family," referencing Hunter's drug history.

"It's a very tough thing. It's a very tough situation for a father," he added. "It's a very tough situation for a brother or sister. And it goes on and it's not stopping. Whether it's alcohol or drugs or whatever it may be. It's a tough thing. And so that's a tough moment for the family. It's a tough moment for any family involved in that."

Hunter Biden was convicted last week of lying on a gun-purchase form in 2018 by saying he wasn't using or addicted to drugs.

Biden said he wouldn't use his powers to appeal his son's conviction. He has also expressed pride in his son's resilience and recovery from addiction.

"As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today," Biden said. "So many families who have had loved ones battle addiction understand the feeling of pride seeing someone you love come out the other side and be so strong and resilient in recovery."

Later, Trump mentioned he hadn't been asked to endorse former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan for the U.S. Senate. Hogan supported Nikki Haley over Trump and didn't back him in the 2016 and 2020 elections.

"Yeah, I'd like to see him win," Trump said. "I think he has a good chance to win. I would like to see him win."
