Michael Caputo, a former Trump advisor, revealed to Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade discussions about Trump’s running mate were “above my pay grade,” but he believes that Trump will make an “unorthodox” selection, such as Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas or Rep. Mia Love of Utah.
Caputo called Cotton “a heck of a guy” and Love “somebody who is an African-American leader with really bright ideas and an ability to communicate.”
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump then revealed Thursday that he is considering selecting Sen. Cotton as his running mate. “I’ve gotten very good, you know, very good statements from Sen. Cotton, who I know, whose parents I know and met. I think that he is a very talented guy. He’s also very popular. He’s a very popular person,” Trump said.
