Democrats Planning to Attack Trump’s VP Shortlist with ‘MAGA Extremist’ Narrative

Democrats are reportedly planning to launch a smear attack with the obedient corporate media against President Donald Trump’s running mate shortlist.

The media assault will aim to paint the large group of potential running mate picks as “extremists” and “ultra-MAGA” Republicans.

Trump has offered few clues about who he intends to select.

He has left the group of roughly a half-dozen major candidates pushing to set themselves apart.

Democrats are looking to paint the candidates with the same brush, however.

The corporate media will promote the Democrat narrative by arguing they would all effectively be the same, Axios reported Wednesday.

The Democrats, with their reported “Trump’s MAGA Veepstakes” plan, look to focus on key issues like election denial, abortion, healthcare, and tax cuts.

No major Trump VP candidates have split with him regarding his view of the outcome of the 2020 election.

Republicans remain widely supportive of the tax cuts under the Trump administration.

Trump has backed down somewhat on abortion, however.

He distanced himself from Republicans who support a federal 15 or 20-week abortion ban.

He instead argues each individual state should be allowed to determine its own abortion laws.

Democrats are universally pushing to re-impose Roe v. Wade’s standards through federal legislation, however.

Top contenders for Trump’s VP pick have adopted a number of strategies to stand out.

Some, like North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH),  and Vivek Ramaswamy, have gone so far as to attend Trump’s New York criminal trial in Manhattan.

A number of other big names have been floated to join Trump on the Republican ticket.

These names include Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Arkansas Gov. Sarah Sanders, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Sen. Vance, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

Trump has spent most of the past month sitting on trial in a New York City courtroom, away from the campaign trail.

Meanwhile, Democrat President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris are free to hit the campaign trail.

However, Trump is still weighing his running mate options.

He suggested last week he might even wait until the July Republican National Convention in Milwaukee to name his pick.

Trump and Biden agreed to plans for a debate.

Those plans also include a clash between Harris and Trump’s eventual running mate.
