Political News

22News White House Correspondent Mark Meredith got a chance to ask President Trump two questions during Wednesday’s news conference.

1. “I know you went through the results and you obviously studied them late last night. What lesson did you learn most from looking at those results. Was there one thing, as you kind of reviewed them, that you’ll change your strategy not just for Congress but for going further?” 

2. “A lot of people are going to be rushing to Iowa, New Hampshire, you know that the Democrats are already looking ahead to 2020, do you want to lock down your ticket right now sir? Will the vice president be your running mate in 2020?”

Watch the video for President Trump’s responses. 

(AP) – President Donald Trump says Vice President Mike Pence will be his running mate in 2020, impromptu confirmation that could give sign makers a head start on printing political signs for the next presidential election.

In the middle of a news conference at the White House on Wednesday, the Republican president was unexpectedly asked if Pence would be on the ticket.

Trump said he hadn’t asked Pence yet but then turned to the vice president and said: “Mike, will you be my running mate? Will you?”

Pence acknowledged that he would.
