President Donald Trump affirmed that his running mate for the 2020 presidential election wouldn’t change this weekend.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Trump confirmed that Vice President Mike Pence would be joining him on the 2020 Republican ticket.

“I’m very happy with Mike Pence,” Trump replied when asked about his running mate before boarding Air Force One in New Jersey.
Trump is expected to easily win the Republican nomination for president. Only former Mass. Gov. Bill Weld is currently running against him in the GOP primary.
Weld was polling at just 14 percent to Trump’s 86 percent in a poll from March. Still, Weld has pressed Trump in the mainstream media in recent days.
Weld is hoping to win New Hampshire in the Republican primary, and then “all bets are off.”
“I think it’s Mr. Trump who’s the Republican-In-Name-Only,” Mr. Weld said on CNN’s “New Day” this week. “He’s not an economic conservative — I cut taxes 21 times, but I also cut spending.”

“My aim is to win the New Hampshire primary, and if that happens I think all bets are off,” he told CNN. “It’s true that the five presidents running for reelection who had a primary challenge all lost or dropped out. They didn’t lose the primary, but they all lost for reelection.”
“So history is not on Mr. Trump’s side,” Weld continued. “But I think this is doable based on what I hear on the ground in New Hampshire. I’m talking to many more voters than Mr. Trump is up there.”
