Trump Says He’s Looking For ‘Fighter’ VP Like Gingrich Or Christie

July 13, 2016 7:04 a.m.

Donald Trump on Tuesday said that he’s looking for a “fighter skilled in hand-to-hand combat” to be his running mate and confirmed his top candidates in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

“I’m getting attacked from all sides,” he told the Wall Street Journal.

Trump told the Journal that he is looking at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as possible vice presidents. He’s also considering Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).

He said that both Christie and Gingrich are “extraordinary warriors,” and that he has chemistry with both of them.

“You either have it or you don’t. I clearly have it with Chris and Newt,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal.

Trump said that he’s still assessing Pence as a fighter. The two appeared at a rally together on Tuesday night.
