Just picture the explosion of a “TNT” campaign: Trump and Tucker. The mere thought would send shockwaves through liberal circles nationwide, and that alone makes it a delightful prospect. But beyond that, the Trump-Tucker duo would form an incredibly forceful anti-war America First team, the likes of which the D.C. Swamp has never seen. Could this become a reality? Surprisingly, yes, it’s within the realm of possibility. As a matter of fact, popular Trump supporter Benny Johnson shared the moment President Trump admitted he was open to considering Tucker as his veep.
🚨Donald Trump on the possibility of Tucker Carlson becoming his VP: “I like Tucker a lot. I guess I would consider him. He’s got great common sense”

And while this might seem like a “loopy” fringe idea to many, conservative powerhouse Charlie Kirk says not so fast…
Charlie says that it’s actually a brilliant idea to bring Tucker into the White House. Here’s what he said about it in a recent X post:
Donald Trump says he’s open to Tucker Carlson as a 2024 running mate. At first, it sounds a little loopy. But upon further thought…
Besides Trump himself, nobody enjoys the base’s trust the way Tucker Carlson does. Nobody else intuitively understands their values, their priorities, or their worries the way they do.
No other VP contender is as battle-tested as Tucker. Like Trump, he thrives under attack and under pressure. He’s been targeted and smeared endlessly for seven years, but he’s never cracked, never had a breakdown. He’s only become more popular. Despite years of digging, his personal life is spotless.
Tucker is the only Republican who can even begin to imitate Trump’s rhetorical style. They’re the only two men who can keep an audience transfixed speaking for an hour without a single note.
The Democrat plan is to keep Donald Trump stuck in court or even in jail so he can’t campaign. Is anybody a more viable Trump campaign surrogate than Tucker Carlson?
And as we know, the vice president is just a heartbeat away from the presidency. If something were to happen to President Trump, God forbid, is there anyone we’d trust more than Tucker Carlson to carry the conservative mantle into the future?
This isn’t some flight of fancy. Trump/Tucker is a great idea.

Charlie also discussed the Tucker VP possibility during his popular podcast with guest Benny Johnson.

Honestly, it’s probably a long shot that Trump would actually choose Tucker as his VP, and an even slimmer chance that Tucker would accept. He’s been upfront about not wanting a political career, which is too bad because he’d likely soar in that role, perfectly complementing an America First ticket and giving the RINOs and swamp rats a real run for their money. And who better to carry the MAGA torch forward than Tucker Carlson? The future is anyone’s guess. After all, politics has been a field where miracles are sometimes known to happen.
