Who will partner with Trump?


It remains unclear what a Donald Trump presidency would look like.

However, three ultra-conservative figures were quoted by Fox News as potential vice presidents:
- The Arizona Governor Jan Brewer;
- Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma;
- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

But the real surprise occurred Tuesday, May 24 when the New York Post revealed the three men with very different profiles, which would work on the Trump team:
- Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee (Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, is a supporter of the minimum state and a progressive on social matters);
- Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama (a former prosecutor);
- General Michael Flynn (former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency who had resigned in protest against the support of the White House for Daesh. He should publish a book in July: “The battlefield: how we can win the global war against radical Islam and its alliés”.
