Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wouldn't rule out or confirm on Jan. 20 that Sarah Palin, who endorsed him Jan. 19, would be his vice presidential running mate.

"Would you consider her as your running mate?” NBC's "Today" show co-host Savannah Guthrie asked the GOP front-runner, according to Mediate.

“I don’t think it would be something that she would want to do,” Trump said. "She's been through that. And you know, interestingly, Savannah, and this is 100 percent fact, when she came to see me and when she talked to me, and I could see that she liked what we were saying. She never said, 'Gee, I'd like to do this, I'd like to do that.' She never made a deal like so many people like to make deals."

Guthrie asked Trump again if he would consider Palin as vice president.

"I haven't discussed it with her," he replied. "No, I haven't discussed anything with her about what she'd do. But she is somebody I really like and respect, and certainly she could play a position if she wanted to."

Guthrie asked Trump if he was ruling out Palin as vice president.

"Well, I don't think she'd want to do it," he answered. "I don't think she'd want to do it. I really don't get into it right now because that question is always asked of me, 'Who do you have in mind?' and I don't even think about VP right now. I just want to win."

Trump later added, “Certainly, there would be a role somewhere in the administration, if she wanted, and I'm not sure that she does want that, but there would certainly be a role,” notes ABC News.
