Trump's hoping a ‘lot of people’ in the debate

The presidential hopeful hinted that his running mate would be present at the upcoming presidential debate against incumbent Joe Biden, scheduled for Thursday. “They'll be there, ” he told NBC. “I think we have a lot of people coming.”

Despite the mystery candidate's expected attendance at the debate, Trump indicated that the official announcement of his vice presidential pick would likely occur around the time of the Republican National Convention.

The convention is set to take place in Milwaukee from July 15 to July 18, where Trump is anticipated to receive the party's formal nomination. “Maybe a little before, but could be at the convention,” Trump remarked.

“But we'll have some great people.”

Among the top contenders Trump has been considering are North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, Senator JD Vance of Ohio, and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.

NBC News recently reported that Burgum and Vance have emerged as the leading finalists, though Rubio remains a viable option.
