In a recent development that has sparked conjecture, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) has hinted at a possible vice-presidential candidacy alongside former President Donald Trump in the forthcoming presidential election, as reported by the New York Post.

During a conversation with Eric Bolling, Scott shared his thoughts on the anticipated debates between Joe Biden and President Trump. He expressed his dissatisfaction with the media's treatment of conservative politicians and forecasted a bias in the questions that will likely favor Biden.

"We're thinking softballs for Joe Biden and hardballs for Donald Trump," Scott stated. He further questioned whether the American public will have an opportunity to witness a one-on-one debate at any given time. "The answer is absolutely yes. Joe Biden will look like he is an elderly man who should be retired. The good news is, Donald J. Trump is going to be the guy that retires him," he added.

Scott also commented on Trump's unique approach to answering questions, stating, "Donald Trump is going to answer the questions the way Donald Trump is going to answer the questions." He expressed his astonishment that Joe Biden has not agreed to a debate with a conservative moderator.

Bolling, showing his excitement for a debate moderated by conservative figures, proposed that he would be privileged to moderate a debate between Scott and Harris. Responding to Bolling's suggestion, Scott seemed open to the idea, thereby fueling rumors of his potential vice-presidential candidacy.

"I hear there's a debate in July. If you're the guy moderating, maybe I'll be talking to you. We'll see what happens," Scott responded. He further expressed his belief in America's greatness and the need for a new president, endorsing Donald Trump for the position.

When Bolling probed further to confirm whether Scott would be the new vice president, Scott replied, "We'll see. We'll see."

This dialogue follows Trump's earlier mention of Tim Scott as one of the top contenders for his running mate during a town hall event hosted by Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. Trump emphasized the importance of choosing a vice president who could competently step up as president if required. He commended Senator Tim Scott for his support and effectiveness, hinting at his potential as a VP candidate.

However, this speculation contradicts a report from NBC stating that Trump will not choose a staunch pro-life candidate as his running mate due to electoral concerns. The report suggests that Trump has been inquiring about the positions of various potential vice-presidential picks on the issue, with particular concerns raised about Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.

Scott has previously indicated his support for a six-week federal ban on abortion, pledging during his presidential campaign to "sign the most conservative pro-life legislation that they can get through Congress." This position contrasts with Trump's apparent red line of supporting anything stricter than a six-week ban.

This stance marks a shift from Trump's 2016 presidential campaign when he chose the strongly pro-life Mike Pence to consolidate support with conservative evangelicals.
