( – On Sunday, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem argued during an interview on NBC that former President Donald Trump needed to select a running mate that would help him win. She also pointed out that she has not been vetted to be Trump’s vice President. 

Noem stated on “Meet the Press” that she has not received any vetting papers from the Trump campaign. Last month during an interview Noem pointed out that the polls in battleground states had shown that should Trump select a woman as his vice presidential candidate he would win the presidential election. 

During her recent interview, she argued that she has talked with Trump and that she knows he is the only one behind the decision of who will act as his vice president. However, when pressed Noem disclosed that she thinks it would be a mistake for him not to choose a woman. She added that Trump needed to choose the person who would be best equipped for the job and someone who could assist him with a win.

On Friday, an NBC News report noted that Trump has focused his attention on three men for the position. 

Noem was previously considered by experts one of the top prospects for the position of Trump’s running mate. However, earlier this year with the release of her memoir she received a lot of criticism after talking about her killing her family’s puppy. 

When asked whether or not these criticisms might have affected her chances of winning the position, Noem did not offer a direct response and only noted that this was a story from two decades ago that was about her protecting her children.
