Scott Walker Bewildered by Trump Naming Him as Potential VP

Donald Trump's Republican presidential campaign has hit some speed bumps lately

Black, who has worked in some capacity on every Republican presidential campaign since 1976, shrugged off questions about whether the Republican Party would be riven by a bitter revolt if GOP elites tried to orchestrate a Kasich nomination, after those voters rejected the OH governor at the ballot box.

On Monday, John Kasich will be joined by his wife Karen and daughters Reese and Emma; on Tuesday, Donald Trump will be joined by his wife Melania and children Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr.; and on Wednesday, Ted Cruz will be joined by his wife Heidi.

Trump went on to say that he likes Marco Rubio, John Kasich and Walker.

Donald Trump and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker participate in the first prime-time presidential debate hosted by FOX News and Facebook at the Quicken Loans Arena August 6, 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Trump suggested Monday that he was considering Kasich among others as a possible running mate, as well as for cabinet positions. But his goal is to emerge from a contested convention as a unifying nominee for the November general election, one who polls well against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Ted Cruz and campaigned with him in the days leading up to his primary win in Wisconsin last week.

At this point in the race, the OH governor stands little chance of securing the Republican nomination for president. "People will different sounding last names or different religious beliefs", the OH governor said. "You never know", he added.

"I have stood on a stage and watched with amazement as candidates wallowed in the mud, viciously attacked one another, called each other liars and disparaged each other's character", Kasich will say. Are leaders puppets to power or servants of the people they represent? "We were approached by several of their delegates who were very upset with how it was done in the process and I think that will help us long term on the floor". I would be the worst vice president the country ever saw.

"He is not doing a great job", Trump said of Walker, before going on to criticize his support for NAFTA and the TPP.

The strength of the United States, Kasich said, "is that we are bound by shared ideas, by communities and families and people who are free, creative and giving". It also keeps Rubio in the conversation as an alternative should the convention floor descend into a war between Trump and Sen.

" 'I literally just heard it in the vehicle and I said - I laughed - it's kind of interesting to hear that after the things that were said about me a couple weeks ago, ' Walker said".
