On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump confirmed a short list of names he is considering asking to become his running mate in the coming months,

Trump joined Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham to discuss the upcoming South Carolina primary, which takes place on Feb. 24., Ingraham asked the former president if the rumored names were in fact on his list of potential running mates.

The list includes three former GOP candidates, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.). He also confirmed that Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) and former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who served in Congress as a Democrat but has since shifted to more conservative views.

Trump confirmed “they are” on his shortlist, but did not provide a timeline for when he will announce his vice presidential pick. He said, “all of those people are good. They’re all solid.”

Trump specifically commended Scott, who was in the crowd at the event, for his support.

“A lot of people are talking about that gentleman right over there,” Trump said when asked about a running mate, pointing to Scott. “And he’s, been so great. He’s been such a great advocate.”

“I have to say, this is in a very positive way, Tim Scott, he has been much better for me than he was for himself,” the former president continued. “I watched his campaign and he doesn’t like talking about himself, but boy, does he talk about Trump.”

The South Carolina senator suspended his primary bid in November after failing to earn enough support.
