Following Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump for president in 2016, Trump told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie that he could have a role for the former Alaska governor in his administration.
“She’s been through that, and interestingly, Savannah, this is a 100 percent fact, when she came to see me and she talked to me, I could see that she really liked what we were saying,” Trump said on Jan. 20.
Trump added that he hasn’t asked Palin to be his running mate, as he felt it wasn’t “something she’d want to do.” However, he said he could see her being a part of his political future.
"I haven't discussed anything with her about what she'd do, but she's somebody I really like and I respect, and certainly she could play a position if she wanted to," he said.
Palin has not approached Trump about any specific role in his campaign or potential administration.
“She never made a deal, like so many people want to try and make deals," Trump said. "I mean, she just said: I really like what’s going on, it’s an amazing thing, I’ve never seen anything like it in politics."
Palin is Trump’s highest-profile endorsement yet. She announced her endorsement at a rally in Iowa on Jan. 19.
“Are you ready for the leader to make America great again?” she asked the crowd in her speech.
“What he has been able to do, which is really ticking people off, which I’m glad about — he’s going rogue left and right," she added.
