'I Would Be Open to That': Tulsi Gabbard Throws Her Hat In for Trump's VP Pick

The likelihood of former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard becoming Donald Trump’s running mate is rising by the day. 

In an interview with Jesse Watters over on Fox, Gabbard made no secret of her willingness to serve as Trump’s vice presidential nominee if she was asked.

“You’re being considered for a VP slot, is that something you are open to?” Watters asked during “Jesse Watters Primetime.”

“I would be open to that,” she responded. “My mission is to serve our country. I want to be in a position to solve problems.”

Gabbard, who is regarded as somewhat of a political maverick, has long been touted as a potential running mate for Trump or as a third-party candidate. 

In October 2022, she announced she was leaving the Democratic Party, describing it as an “elitist cabal of warmongers who are driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoking anti-white racism who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution.”

In February, The Hill revealed that Gabbard would headline a fundraiser for Trump later this month at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

They reported at the time: 

According to an invitation shared exclusively with The Hill, Gabbard is set to be the keynote speaker at the 917 Society’s annual fundraiser on March 7 for a night in Palm Beach “celebrating the Constitution.”

Trump himself has confirmed that he would be open to choosing Gabbard, telling Laura Ingraham during a Fox News town hall in February that she and Vivek Ramaswamy, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem would all be possible candidates. 

“Honestly all of those people are good,” Trump, 77, told Ingraham. “They’re all good, they’re all solid.”

When attendees at the largely pro-Trump Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland in February were surveyed about who they would choose as his VP, Gabbard came in second place.

Although Gabbard’s chances of being chosen appear more likely by the day, her choice would still be unconventional. As a former Democrat, she previously endorsed the candidacies of both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, and holds left-wing positions on everything from abortion and the environment to drug policy and LGBT rights.
