Trump's South Carolina outing fuels Vice Presidential rumors.

Trending Now

Former U.S. President Donald Trump recently made headlines with a visit to South Carolina. While the outing itself was in line with Trump's well-documented support for the Second Amendment, it was the presence of a notable Georgia Representative that has set the rumor mill in motion.

Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for the former President, took to social media to announce Trump's latest purchase from a gun store. The post, which has since been deleted, read, "President Trump purchases a Glock in South Carolina!" This has led to some controversy, as federal regulations prohibit individuals under indictment from acquiring firearms.

What has fueled speculation is the appearance of Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene in the background of various photos and videos captured during the visit. Greene has long been a vocal supporter of Trump, but her presence at this specific event has reignited chatter about her potentially being a Vice Presidential pick in a future Trump campaign.

Steve Bannon, a former Trump aide, has even hinted that Greene is already positioning herself for a VP role. "She's ambitious and makes no secret of it. She believes she's on Trump's VP shortlist," Bannon commented according to NBCnews.

In a previous interview with The Guardian, Greene herself acknowledged the possibility, stating, "It's a frequent topic of discussion, and I know I'm on a list. However, my main focus at this moment is serving the people who elected me."

This recent event, along with ongoing rumors, has intensified the belief that Greene could be Trump's choice for Vice President if he decides to run for office again.
