Trump says he’s made up his mind on VP but hasn’t told them yet — here’s who it could be

He’s made the big decision.

Former President Donald Trump told reporters Saturday that he has quietly made a determination about who will be his vice president, but hasn’t let them know.

“In my mind, yeah,” Trump told reporters at a cheesesteak restaurant in Philadelphia when asked about the decision.

“No, nobody knows,” he added when asked if he had informed the person.

Without divulging any names, Trump, 78, further teased that his future running mate will be present at his upcoming debate in Atlanta on Thursday against President Biden.

Special guests at a watch party for the debate will include former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Gov. Doug Burgum (R-N.D.), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sen. JD Vance (R-Ohio), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), Rep. Wesley Hunter (R-Texas), according to a copy of the invitation reviewed by The Post.

The party will be hosted by ex-Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and her husband, billionaire Jeff Sprecher with a boost from Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Whatley and co-chair Lara Trump.

Other supporters, such as Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), are also expected to attend, per a source familiar.

Trump’s campaign has ramped up its vetting of potential running mates in recent weeks.

Thus far, the top two finalists in the contest are believed to be Burgum and Vance, with Rubio still in the running, NBC reported, citing conversations with over a dozen officials.

The 45th president has previously teased that an announcement will come during the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisc. from July 15–18.

But there’s always the possibility that an announcement could come sooner.

The presumptive GOP standard bearer is set to face sentencing in his 34-count hush money conviction on July 11, days before the convention.

But there’s always the possibility that an announcement could come sooner.

In advance of the debate, the former president has held policy sessions with close advisers in preparation for the verbal sparring match.

Meanwhile, Biden has hunkered down at Camp David with an assortment of allies in debate prep.
