Trump says he will announce his vice presidential nominee at the GOP convention next month


Former President Donald Trump said in interviews broadcast Thursday that he will announce his running mate at the Republican National Convention next month.

The presumptive GOP nominee was asked by TV psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw: “Are you going to tell me who your choice for vice president is?”

“I can’t yet, but we have very good people. I’m going to do it at the convention,” Trump said. The GOP convention is scheduled to take place July 15-18 in Milwaukee.

Trump made similar comments in an interview that aired around the same time Thursday on Fox News.

“I think I’m going to announce who that person is going to be during the convention. I think that’s pretty normal during the convention. “It’s going to be an interesting time,” the former president said.

CNN reported Wednesday that vetting documents had been sent to several candidates being considered to become Trump’s running mate, according to a person familiar with the process. People close to the deliberations, however, cautioned that Trump’s search for a vice presidential nominee is still evolving, and the campaign stressed that only Trump would make the final decision.

Trump said in an interview with TMJ4 News last month that there was a “pretty good chance” he would announce his running mate at the Milwaukee convention.
