Trump referenced his private meeting with Ayotte earlier this year, as well as “a couple of times” they had met, in his discussion with WKXL.
Calling the New Hampshire senator “a terrific woman” and “tremendous,” Trump said that he really liked her a lot and “would be somebody that you would consider” as veep.
“I think the concept of a woman as vice president is absolutely great,” he added, but with a disclaimer that it depends on the circumstances.
In July Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte said she isn’t worried about having to support Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee since he likely won’t be the party nominee anyway.
