Trump’s Ex-Wife Nominates Herself For VP

A shocking turn of events…

Former President Donald Trump’s ex-wife, Marla Maples, recently said she was open to being his running mate during an interview

“I’m open. I’m open to whatever way that I can serve,” Maples said in an interview with the U.K. publication, The Evening Standard, released Monday.

“Right now everyone [in the Trump family] is just seeing how we can help,” she said when asked about potentially being the 45th president’s VP pick.

Maples, who has largely stayed out of politics during Trump’s first term, says she’s not longer afraid of the consequences and is ready to “step out more.”

“I’ve never been a fan of politics. I see how it can separate and divide us,” Maples told The Evening Standard.

“At the same time, I found myself in the throes of it,” the “Dancing With the Stars” alum said.

Maples and Trump were married from 1993 to 1999 and are parents to daughter Tiffany Trump. 

But now, Maples said, “I’m ready. I am available if needed and I’m not sitting back anymore.”

 “I want to step out more, share more and not be afraid of positive or negative outcomes that come from speaking out,” she said. 

Despite Maples’ throwing her hat into the ring, Trump is more likely to choose a running mate with more firsthand political experience.

According to a report from The New York Post, Donald Trump is now seriously considering two candidates to become his running mate: Ohio Senator J.D. Vance and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum. Florida Senator Marco Rubio is also reportedly being considered.

One source close to Trump gave a slight edge to Burgum being the 45th president’s running mate, saying the North Dakotan had a 50-50 chance of being selected and Vance had a 30% chance, with Rubio and the field each having a 10% percent chance.

A different source close to the Trump campaign said the choice was “gonna be JD, Marco or Burgum” and that they didn’t “see a scenario where one of those three doesn’t end up getting it.”

“I would give Burgum and JD a little more of an edge than Marco,” the source added, handicapping that “Marco still has a shot” and that “Burgum and JD have an equal shot.”

“JD because that’s who Don Jr. and Trump’s inner orbit seem to be pushing for,” this person said. “Donors [are] pushing Burgum for stability.”

It’s unclear exactly when Trump will officially announce his choice for vice president but speculation is building around his upcoming rally in Pennsylvania and the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.
