Billionaire mogul Donald Trump says he has found the “best choice of all” to be presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate: Donald Trump.

“You have a lot of really good candidates,” the reality star told Newsmax columnist John LeBoutillier on Wednesday. “Chris Christie’s a great guy. He’s a friend of mine. You really have someone really good there. Rob Portman, who I don’t know, but I hear fantastic things about. Certainly he’s been very well vetted over the years. He’s a professional who’s been there a long time. He’s been through it. He knows the game and he’s a very, very solid citizen.”

“On a younger side, you could look at Sen. Rubio, who I think could help with Hispanics. But he is young, and I think he sort of doesn’t want to go through it and doesn’t want to do it.”

“Probably the best choice of all would be Donald Trump,” the billionaire concluded.
