Corker: Trump’s Best Running Mate Would Be Ivanka

Wednesday Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) talked with MSNBC’s Kelly O’Donnell about why he withdrew himself from consideration as a possible running mate for Donald Trump.

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said, “First of all, I’ve always thought that I’m better suited for other kinds of things. I think most people who know me agree with that. But I do want to say I had a remarkable day there yesterday. The Trump family is most impressive. His best running mate by the way would be Ivanka. I know that wouldn’t pass muster probably but I don’t know I have met a more composed, brilliant, beautiful in every way person.”

“Eric just equally impressive, Jared what a special relationship that he has with his son-in-law. It’s pretty neat to see, he continued. “But with each of the meetings I had with them and with Manafort and Donald Trump, at 3:00 in his office, to the limousine, going to the airport to the plane to coming back to New York, We were together almost eight hours except for the 66 minutes he was on stage. And just to have insight into the campaign and just to how they are operating was candidly a privilege.”
