A summary of the names that are circulating with the greatest insistence.

Tim Scott

It's no secret: The biography of Tim Scott, the African-American senator from South Carolina, appeals to the former Republican president.

Donald Trump continues to praise the loyalty of the fifty-year-old man, a former contender for the White House. “You are a much better candidate for me than you were for yourself,” he said again during a recent rally.

With Tim Scott as his right-hand man, Donald Trump can hope to pick up votes among black voters, who largely favored Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

But his critics criticize the senator for not being present, especially during debates.

Doug Burgum

It must be said that North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is completely unknown to the general public. But this is precisely what would please Donald Trump, who is not used to being overshadowed by his aides.

This sixty-year-old man made his fortune as the head of a software publisher, which he sold to Microsoft for more than a billion dollars, before running for president of one of the least populated states in the country, adjacent to Mount Rushmore, where the faces of previous American presidents are engraved in granite.

As governor, Doug Burgum passed one of the nation's strictest anti-abortion laws, a decision that could haunt him in this presidential campaign as the issue of voluntary termination of pregnancy is considered so sensitive.

J.D. Vance

He wasn't always a supporter of Donald Trump, something the former Republican president kept telling him.

But be careful not to bury JD Vance too quickly.

The 39-year-old former soldier, known for publishing a successful book about white America, only recently entered politics. The file of this senator from Ohio is very attractive in Republican circles, especially thanks to his ability to raise wealth for his party.

This windfall is significant in a country where political victories are achieved with billions of dollars.

Marco Rubio

Between Donald Trump and Marco Rubio, love wasn't always crazy. The Florida senator faced off against the real estate mogul in the 2016 Republican primary, a vote in which he publicly mocked the size of Donald Trump's hands and complexion.

But the two men appear to have since buried the hatchet.

Donald Trump knows he will be able to capitalize on the personality of this 53-year-old elected official, who is highly engaged on geopolitical issues and who could attract valuable support among Hispanic voters.

However, part of the hard right has never forgiven him for his immigration reform project, which he presented more than a decade ago.

Other potential candidates

The names of New York elected official Elise Stefanik, former Housing Secretary Ben Carson, and Senator Tom Cotton are also being circulated, but their chances appear limited at the moment.

Just like businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, elected official Byron Donalds, or former broadcaster Cary Lake.

Asked by AFP, Donald Trump's entourage declined to provide details about the septuagenarian candidate's preferred profile.

“Anyone who claims to know who President Trump will choose as vice president, or when, is lying,” his advisor, Brian Hughes, said in a statement. “Unless that person’s name is Donald Trump.”
