Kristi Noem Reveals She Would 'Absolutely' Consider Being Trump's VP


South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) revealed in an interview with Newsmax she would “absolutely” consider being former President Donald Trump’s running mate in the 2024 election.

She said this Thursday, but maintained, “it’s early to be having these conversations.”

“Obviously, President Trump is doing very well in the Republican primary. I don’t see how anybody else can beat him and I’ve supported him in this race because he’s the best one to lead our country,” she said. 

Noem added, “We’ve seen his strong leadership in national security issues and also taking care of families here at home. … Certainly, he’d be 1,000 times better than [President] Joe Biden and how he is devastating our country right now.”

This comes just before Trump was set to visit South Dakota Friday.

Thursday, she also posted to X, formerly Twitter, about his visit, stating, “His message of economic success and national security resonates with South Dakotans. We’re excited to welcome him back to our great state tomorrow!”

This has led voters to speculate about the coming rally. 

Political commentator Gunther Eagleman posted, “Governor Kristi Noem will endorse President Donald Trump at tonight’s rally in South Dakota…  She knows!”

Despite the topic trending on X, Real America’s Voice posted its interview with Noem where she was asked about her potential to be Trump’s vice presidental candidate. 

Noem clarified that, “He and his team have not asked,” but she did explain that she tries “to live a life of significance.”
