Trump's Vice Presidential Nominee: Who Will Be the Republican Running Mate?

Byron Donalds, 45, has helped raise the profile of black conservatism.

Born in New York to a single mother, Mr. Donalds worked in banking, insurance and finance before entering local politics in Florida in 2012.

After four years in the Florida House of Representatives, he has been serving in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2020, where he represents the right wing of his party in Washington.

On June 15, Mr. Donalds joined Trump at a campaign event in Michigan aimed at winning over black voters. The former president openly mentioned Mr. Donalds as a potential running mate.

“Byron Donalds is an incredible guy, and I saw that he happened to be on the list of potential vice presidents,” Trump said. “Would anyone want to see him as vice president?”

In an interview with Fox News, he played coy when asked if he had discussed the job with Trump.

“Maybe, maybe not,” Mr. Donalds said. “I'll keep that to myself.”

“I think President Trump is going to make a great decision,” the congressman continued. “It's clearly his decision, his decision alone.”

However, there has been less talk about his candidacy in recent days, after US media reported that Trump's shortlist had shrunk.
