Former US President Donald Trump made a big revelation amid an intensifying race for the White House. He unveiled that he has arrived at the decision of the vice presidential nominee for the 2024 US Presidential Elections. However, he claimed that he hadn’t disclosed the name to Republicans contending for the position.

In an interview with NBC News, the business-mogul-turned politician further noted that his running mate is “most likely” to be at the upcoming presidential debate against US President Joe Biden. Next presidential debate is scheduled for July 4 and will take place in Atlanta.
