Trump's son Eric on his Dad's VP pick ;

Quote:
“I think probably somebody who would almost be a great COO in the traditional business capacity,” he told Yahoo Finance in an interview at Trump Tower. “You know, he wants somebody who’s immensely capable, immensely competent, garners respect … .I think loyal first and foremost.”

Trump added he thinks his father will want someone he enjoys being around.

“You’re gonna be with the VP 20 hours a day each and every day. I say that a little facetiously, but … you’re gonna spend an inordinate amount of time with them,” he said. “And so you better have somebody you really like to be around, and you care about and they care about you.”

He also said his dad wants someone who will get things done.

“I think he’s gonna want a doer, somebody who can cut through red tape. And you know, so oftentimes you see these, you know, presidents pick VPs because they wanna win a state, they need to win that critical state … I think my father is gonna approach it very differently. I think the VP that he has is gonna fit some specific need — and I think that’s gonna be somebody who’s, again, immensely competent and that will actually get the job done, not just a career politician.”
