As former President Donald Trump continues to push forward with his 2024 presidential campaign, aside from any shocking twists regarding his legal issues, the biggest announcement will be whom he selects as his running mate.
According to Breitbart, one name keeps popping up as a supported, popular vice-presidential pick, and it happens to be one of Trump's opponents who is gaining rapidly in the polls.
The outlet noted that Brexit leader Nigel Farage has voiced support for Vivek Ramaswamy, a 37-year-old entrepreneur and current 2024 GOP presidential candidate, as Trump's ultimate best choice in running mates.
Farage, like many, was impressed with Ramaswamy on all levels, including his policies that echo those of President Trump. Ramaswamy also happens to be extremely popular with Trump's base of support.
"To win the presidency, Trump must pick the right VP candidate. I believe that Ramaswamy may offer him his best prospect of success," Farage said.
He added, "I met him earlier this year and was seriously impressed. He has youth on his side, being 37, and he is personable and decent. The son of Indian immigrants who was educated at Harvard and Yale, he has a good story to tell."

Though he was off to a somewhat slow start, Ramaswamy has quickly risen in the ranks of the conservative side, especially among MAGA Republicans. Ramaswamy's vision for America closely mirrors that of Trump's. Combined with his youth, he's an attractive candidate.
It also helps that Ramaswamy has not attacked Trump, which seems to be working out well given that he's already sitting neck-and-neck with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in many polls, and ahead of him in some.

"His refusal to worship at the altar of corporate wokeism and his hatred of virtue signaling have won him many fans. So has his stance on false accusations of embedded racism," Farage said of Ramaswamy.
The Brexit leader added, "He represents the kind of modernity that American conservatism needs if it is to prosper as we enter the second quarter of the 21st century."
Mr Farage, who is one of Donald Trump’s closest and longest political allies on the world stage, argued that the “quietly spoken and intellectually forceful” Ramaswamy would be an effective messenger in reaching out to suburban women, a demographic Trump has struggled to gain support from.
Only time will tell if Ramaswamy gets the call. The question is if he does, will he take the job?
