If Donald Trump wins the 2016 presidential election, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) may again grace the national political stage.
During a Monday interview on radio show “The Palin Update,” Trump said he was open to including Palin as a member of his cabinet if elected president.
When he joined the show on Monday, Trump called Palin “tough and smart,” prompting the show’s host, Kevin Scholla, to ask the presidential candidate whether he would consider asking Palin for advice or including her in his administration.
“I’d love that,” Trump responded, according to audio highlighted by Right Wing Watch. “Because she really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person, and I think people know that.”
He said that he’s constantly encouraged to ask Palin for his support in his presidential run.
“Everybody loves her,” he said, adding that many people “like the Sarah Palin kind of strength, you just don’t see very much of it anymore.”
