Don Jr. said the former Fox News host agrees with his father on ‘everything’ and would ‘certainly be a contender’ to be picked as the vice presidential candidate.
‘Don, is your dad serious about Tucker Carlson? Are those rumors serious?’ anchor Rob Finnerty asked on Newsmax’s Wake Up America on Thursday morning.
‘That clearly would be on the table, right? I mean they’re very friendly, I think they agree on virtually all of these things,’ Don Jr. said.
‘I would love to see that happen. That would certainly be a contender,’ the former president’s eldest son said, adding that Trump and Carlson agree on ‘stopping the never-ending war.’
Donald Trump Jr said his dad could choose Tucker Carlson to be his vice presidential running mate if the former president wins the 2024 GOP nomination

‘You need someone who’s in alignment, as well as, like, aggressive. You actually need a fighter,’ Don Jr. said.
‘The Republicans in Washington, D.C., are weak. You can have the House, the Senate, and they’ll still roll over.’
Don Jr. also mentioned other names include Sen. J.D. Vance, who he said was ‘principally in alignment [with his father] as well as aggressive.’
He also seemed to approve of Ben Carson, who served as Trump’s Housing secretary and endorsed his presidential campaign last year.
The only person Don Jr. would not like to see is Nikki Haley, the former UN ambassador and Trump’s rival.
‘I would do whatever I could to make sure it wasn’t Nikki Haley.’ he said. ‘I don’t think that’s currently really on the table. That’s my opinion, I don’t make these decisions.’
Don Jr. also refused to call Haley a Republican on Thursday’s show, saying, ‘I think she’s being funded by Democrats, right? I mean, you see that.’
‘She’s got Democrat megadonors funding her campaign. The people who are getting her gains in New Hampshire are all Democrats.’
‘So, I probably see that as part of that sort of globalist Democrat, RINO tactic of dragging this out to make it harder for Trump to win a general.,’ he added.
Don Jr. also said he would not rule out Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis because he has been ‘a leading contender’

The former president just beat his GOP rivals DeSantis, Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy in a crushing victory in the Iowa caucuses.
It gives Trump a massive boost as he seeks to win the Republican presidential nomination and return to the White House in what would be the most remarkable political comeback in US history.
‘I feel great,’ Trump told Fox News. ‘I am greatly honored by such an early call. It really is an honor that, minutes after, they’ve announced I’ve won.’
He added; ‘I feel really invigorated and strong for our country. We want to Make America Great Again – the greatest slogan ever – and the fact is, that’s what we did/
‘We’re going to quickly do it all again. We are going to fix our border and we are going to do it, and do it quickly.’
On Wednesday, he assured New Hampshire voters that he is fit for office in a bid to Granite State voters just five days before the primary elections.
Trump alleged that his 2024 competitor Haley is relying on left-learning independents and Democrat voters in New Hampshire to change their registration to vote for her in the Republican primary on Tuesday to foil his bid.
Haley saw a polling surge in New Hampshire in recent weeks. Some surveys put her within single-digits of Trump – and one from earlier this month puts the two in a dead tie with 40 percent each.
The former president also predicted that DeSantis will drop out of the 2024 race ‘very soon.’

The Iowa caucuses Monday yielded a disappointing second place for DeSantis, who fell 30 points behind the ex-president. Haley came in third with 19.1 percent of the vote.
New Hampshire is a much more liberal state than Iowa, where Trump walked away with 51 percent of the vote in Monday’s caucuses.
The Republican presidential primary has its second contest in New Hampshire on January 23 – just over a week after Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses.
Undeclared and independent voters can cast a ballot in the Republican primaries, as long as they decide to participate in those primaries ahead of time, according to the New Hampshire Secretary of State website.
Democrats could also switch their affiliation before the primary, which is a strategy some feel they are employing to keep Trump from winning the state.
