Former President Donald Trump dropped another hint at who his running mate may be after meeting with Republican lawmakers in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

For months, the former president has been teasing who his running mate will be. Trump, speaking with Fox News’s Aishah Hasnie on Thursday, suggested that his pick for vice president was most likely in the room during his meeting with GOP lawmakers from both chambers of Congress.

“Probably… I think we will probably announce it during the convention,” Trump told the outlet.

When asked by Hasnie if he knows who his running mate will be, Trump said he has a “pretty good idea.”

“I have sort of a pretty good idea,” Trump said. “Look, we have some really talented people. I have a pretty good idea.”

The former president met with House Republicans and then GOP senators during his first visit to Capitol Hill since his presidency ended in 2021. As Trump battles for a second term in November, the GOP is looking to keep control of the House of Representatives and win back control of the Senate.
