With the Republican National Convention just around the corner, Cockburn sees only three possible options when it comes to Donald Trump announcing his VP pick. And according to the former president in an interview with Sean Hannity Monday night, he’d “love to do it during the convention,” but “my people say that’s a little complicated.”

With the Republican National Convention just around the corner, Cockburn sees only three possible options when it comes to Donald Trump announcing his VP pick. And according to the former president in an interview with Sean Hannity Monday night, he’d “love to do it during the convention,” but “my people say that’s a little complicated.”

Trump is hosting a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night. With the RNC on Monday in Milwaukee, this could be prime time for Trump to make the VP announcement. Because his “people say it’s a little complicated” to do it during the convention, this would give the party a day or so to get their ducks in a row. “You know in the old days they would announce the vice president during the convention. Today with modern-day technology you can’t do things that you could’ve done fifty years ago very easily,” Trump told Hannity. “But probably a little before the convention, but not much.” Cockburn is betting on this rally for the announcement.

But, the former president did tell Hannity that he’d “love to do it during the convention. I think it’d be a very interesting build-up and important for the convention, it would make it even more exciting.” The RNC is certainly the deadline for deciding on a vice president nominee, so news will be out at least by Monday evening. And, since Trump is all about riling up the news and making big splashes, the timing of this announcement would reflect his usual ruffian style. Cockburn approves.

Good news is, “it’s happening very soon.” And, as the Trump campaign wrote in an email to supporters, “I want YOU to select my vice president.” The email amped up Trump’s ‘I’m no politician’ charm: “DO NOT LISTEN to the liars in the FAKE NEWS media saying they know who my pick will be. They’re MORONS! I wouldn’t even think of telling them before I got a chance to talk to YOU.” The email linked to a poll where you can write who you think the vice president should be and what topics are most important to you — very cute.

As a third and final way for Trump to announce his pick, the campaign might just drop a video online, perhaps on Truth Social. Might as well lean into the “modern-day technology.” Posting on Trump’s “we the people” social media platform would echo the message of his email — “I wouldn’t even think of telling them before I got a chance to talk to YOU.”

The suspense is sure to leave Republicans everywhere in a kind of half-interested anticipation. Keep your eyes and ears peeled.
