Like former President Trump, before getting involved in politics, Marjorie Taylor Greene lists successful business experience on her resumé.
She purchased a commercial construction company in 2002 which has since managed $250 million in construction projects.
In addition, she started a CrossFit gym in Georgia. She grew the business and sold it as one of the top CrossFit gyms in the U.S.
The Congresswoman from Georgia has experience building up successful businesses through hard work and fiscal responsibility. Is that what President Trump sees in her as a potential 2024 running mate?
Some think it’s her loyalty to the “America First” former president and possible GOP candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
There has been a lot of talk, however, surrounding New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, her party’s No. 3 ranking member, as a possible running mate should Trump go for a third run for the presidency.
But New York Times Magazine writer Robert Draper, in an appearance on MSNBC on Saturday, told the host, Ali Velshi, that Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made a shocking admission to him.
She told Draper that her name may appear on the ticket with Trump in 2024.
He wanted the audience to keep things in perspective and went on to say, “To be fair, Ali, it’s very likely that Trump has had this conversation with half a dozen other people too.”
Draper then brought up the subject of MTG’s loyalty to the former president.
“What Greene possesses that Trump so craves is loyalty. She has always been there for Trump. She has always had his back and after his experience with his last running mate, Mike Pence, it’s clear that he’s going to prize loyalty above all else, so I wouldn’t count it out,” he said.
Of course, all of this speculation swirls around in political circles and on various news shows, but it all hinges on Trump announcing his plans to run for president in 2024.
He’s hinted at it ever since leaving the White House in January of 2021.
Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, says that she’s advised the former president to wait until after the midterm elections on November 8 to announce his candidacy.
In an interview earlier this month with CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge, Conway responded to Herridge’s question about Trump’s plans to run again.
Conway said, “Well, he would like to.”
That’s not a surprise to any of us who have been paying attention. We’ve seen Trump at his Save America rallies. Midterm candidates want his endorsement because of his popularity.
“He’s as active as anybody in these midterm elections. That’s important to the calculus also, Catherine, because we have the most ironic, if not unprecedented situation right now,” Conway went on. “We have a president, a current president, whose party doesn’t really want him to campaign with them.”
Conway hinted, “I think once those midterms are done, President Trump can assess the timing of his announcement.”
“I will tell you why he wants to run for president — Donald Trump wants his old job back.”
