I have no idea who Trump will add to his ticket, but I do know that accepting basic democratic norms would be disqualifying. Tim Scott understands this:

Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina on Sunday did not directly answer multiple questions about whether he’d accept the results of the 2024 presidential election, regardless of who wins.

“At the end of the day, the 47th president of the United States will be President Donald Trump,” Scott, a Republican, said the first time he was directly asked whether he would commit to accepting the election results on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”

Asked again by moderator Kristen Welker to answer “yes or no?” to the original question, Scott simply said, “That is my statement.”

Pressed a third time to answer the question, Scott said, “I look forward to President Trump being the 47th president — the American people will make the decision.”

If you support the Republican Party, you’re supporting a party whose elites are committed to the idea that only Republican presidential victories are legitimate. If coercing 14-year-old girls to carry their pregnancies to term or throwing millions of poor people off of health insurance to pay for upper-class tax cuts makes it worth it to you, you can make that choice, but that’s the choice you’re making.
