Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has not ruled out the possibility of becoming former President Donald Trump’s running mate if he wins the Republican nomination.
Greene told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday that she would consider the offer “very, very heavily” if she were approached.
“I have a lot of things to think about,” she said.
“Am I going to be a part of President Trump’s Cabinet if he wins?” the Peach State representative continued. “Is it possible that I’ll be VP?”
“I haven’t made up my mind whether I will do that or not,” added Greene, who has endorsed Trump in the 2024 race.
Under President Trump, America First wasn’t just a slogan — it was our reality. The forgotten men and women of this country were forgotten no longer.

A source allegedly told NBC News that this was Greene’s “whole vision” earlier this year.
Greene told the Journal-Constitution, “It’s not something I’ve been thinking about.” She stated that she had not had any discussions with Trump’s camp about the possibility of becoming his running mate.
Monday, following the former president’s indictment in her home state, Greene used the occasion to disparage Republican Governor Brian Kemp’s response to Trump.
The 45th president has been indicted on 13 counts for allegedly attempting to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. This was his fourth charge this year.
Trump dismissed the allegations in a Truth Social post, claiming that a report to be released next week will prove his claims of election fraud in the state and declaring that he expects “a COMPLETE EXONERATION!”
The former president added, “They never went after those that Rigged the Election. They only went after those that fought to find the RIGGERS!”
Consequently, Kemp responded on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“For nearly three years now, anyone with evidence of fraud has failed to come forward — under oath — and prove anything in a court of law,” he said.
“Our elections in Georgia are secure, accessible, and fair and will continue to be as long as I am governor.”
The 2020 election in Georgia was not stolen.

Journal-Constitution reported that Greene criticized the governor for “arguing with” Trump rather than opposing the indictment.
“That’s a bad statement, and I was very upset over it,” she said.
