As the primary election moves closer and Trump remains the overwhelming frontrunner, sources have revealed to Axios who could potentially be on the Trump ticket come 2024. One source close to Trump told the outlet that former First Lady Melania Trump has expressed support for a ticket with Tucker Carlson as vice president.
The source said she believes Carlson, the widely popular former Fox News host who now hosts his own show on X, would make "a powerful onstage extension of her husband," the outlet reported.
In November, Trump was asked whether he would consider Carlson as a running mate, to which he said he would.
"I like Tucker a lot. I guess I would. I think I'd say I would because he's got great common sense. You know when they say that 'you guys are conservative' or 'I'm conservative.' It's not that we're conservative. We have common sense. We want to have safe borders. We want to have a wall because walls work."
In late November, Carlson revealed that he became an active Trump supporter after the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago in August of 2022 during which they seized classified documents after the DOJ claimed he was supposed to give them to the National Archives.
"I certainly support Trump. I'll tell you that," Carlson said. "I've always agreed with Trump's policies, always, and I lost friends over it. I've never really actively supported anybody because it's not my job to actively support people."
"But, I became an active Trump supporter when they raided Mar-a-Lago last summer, the summer of 2022. That just can't stand," Carlson continued.
"I agree with Trump on a lot, but even if I disagreed with Trump on a lot, I'd still be a Trump supporter because you cannot allow the regime, the President of the United States, to use the Justice Department to knock the frontrunner out of the race. You can't do that," he said.
"So it's bigger than Trump. It's bigger than Biden. It's a question of, you know, do you want to live in a free country with a functioning justice system? So, I'm voting for Trump. And if they convict him, I will send him the max donations and I will lead protests," Carlson asserted. "That's how I feel." He further said that this would not be the case if he thought that Trump had actually committed and crimes, but he does not believe that he has.
