Trump plans to let VP do all the real work while he ‘makes America great again’: report

Published

Does Donald Trump really want to be president? That’s a tricky question to answer.

On the one hand, Trump would love the power of the presidency and the constant attention that he would command.

On the other hand, being president is a lot of grueling work that requires going to lots of meetings, reading lots of briefs and making decisions based on complex information. In other words, it’s a lot of stuff that someone like Trump would find very boring.

This is why it’s not too surprising to see The New York Times report that Trump’s campaign told Ohio Gov. John Kasich that if he accepted the job of the vice presidency, he would immediately become “the most powerful vice president in history.”

According to an anonymous Kasich adviser, Donald Trump Jr. told Kasich that Trump’s VP “would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy,” while Trump’s sole responsibility would be “making America great again.”

While there have been plenty of reports suggesting Trump isn’t at all interested in doing the nitty-gritty aspects of being president — and even whispers that he might step down from the job if he actually won — it’s still a little surprising to learn that the campaign is explicitly telling prospective VPs that they’d get to do most of the work.

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
