WATCH: Kari Lake Says Trump Should Choose An 'America First' Vice President

As the Republican presidential primary is practically over with Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee, the theories for who Trump should pick as his running mate on the ticket are swirling. With several solid Republicans already known to be considered, Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake (R-AZ) gave her opinion on who Trump should choose.

"I think he wants someone who's going to be a good partner, who is going to fight for this country, who is America First, loves our country, is supportive, and loyal — to not only him but [someone] who is going to do great things," Lake said. "And the great thing is, we have so many great people in our America First movement — he could pick from literally hundreds of them." Lake explained that she would support whoever Trump chooses and that many people speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) would be a good fit for the job.

Trump has already given several hints about who he is considering for the role. During a Fox News town hall last week, Trump was asked by host Laura Ingraham if businessman Vivek Ramaswamy (R-OH), Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (I-HI), and Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) were on his vice presidential shortlist. "They are," Trump responded. "So I think it is very important. But first is that, as we said, it has to do with whoever - it's a very important position for that reason. You'd like to get someone who could help you from a voter standpoint. And honestly, all of those people are good. They're all good. They're all solid."

The CPAC straw poll taken earlier this week hinted at who the grassroots want to be Trump's running mate. The poll found that 15 percent of CPAC attendees wanted Ramaswamy, another 15 percent wanted Noem, nine percent wanted Gabbard, eight percent wanted Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), eight percent wanted Scott, seven percent wanted Donalds, six percent wanted Kari Lake, and DeSantis, Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-AR), and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson all got five percent.

Trump's running mate decision will be monumental and define the Republican Party for the next several years. If Trump successfully wins the White House in 2024, he can only serve one term, thus giving his vice president a step up in becoming the Republican nominee in 2028. While Trump must weigh who may help him defeat Biden in November, he must also consider who he wants to carry on the America First mantle once he leaves office.
