Trump eyes running mate with political experience
[Al Ahram] Donald Trump, the de facto Republican nominee in the race for the White House, said Wednesday he wants a running mate with political experience who can work well with Congress.

Trump said his pick for vice president -- unlike the billionaire real estate mogul himself, who is political novice -- will be someone well-versed in Washington politics.

"It will probably be a person with political experience," Trump said in an interview with television broadcaster ABC the morning after his chief remaining rival in the race, Texas senator Ted Cruz, abandoned his White House bid.

"I would like to have somebody that could truly be good with respect to dealing with the Senate, dealing with Congress, getting legislation passed."

Trump seized a resounding victory in Tuesday's primary in Indiana and is expected to easily scoop up the 1,237 delegates necessary to officially secure the nomination.

His brash style, stances on issues that depart from party orthodoxy and personal attacks have divided Republicans.

Trump's choice of running mate -- a decision generally announced shortly before the party's national convention that culminates the nomination process -- could help him sway skeptics.

This year's Republican National Convention will take place in Cleveland, kept in touch with the world by Obamaphone,
...was ruled by a Democrat machine from 1942 through 1971. After the river caught fire during the administration of Carl Stokes they tried a Republican, then went back to being Democrats when the party hacked up Dennis Kucinich ...
, Ohio in July.

Trump declined to divulge any VP names on Wednesday.

"I'm considering a lot of people, to be honest," he told the "Fox and Friends" morning show.

President Fox Apologizes, Invites Trump to Mexico
This is why it's a very bad idea for outside officials to publicly declare opinions before we've made our decision. A great many others may also find themselves in the same position, regardless who wins.
[BREITBART] During an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized Wednesday for the vulgar language he has used regarding GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the southern border and invited the likely Republican nominee to Mexico to see the border from the other side.

Earlier this year, Fox said that he would not pay for Trump’s "f*cking wall," and called Trump ""Ignorant ... crazy ... egocentric ... nasty ... [a] false prophet." Trump then called on Fox to apologize.

On Wednesday, he did so -- in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News -- and added that he wanted Trump to come to Mexico to see the border from the other side.

"I apologize. Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader. You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor," Fox explained to Breitbart News while sitting in the hotel of the J.W. Marriott in Santa Monica, Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, on Wednesday afternoon.

"Love your nation. Love the world," he added. "Yes, I’m humble enough as leadership be, [a] compassionate leader. If I offended you, I’m sorry. But what about the other way around?"

"I don’t think he should follow the strategy of attacking others, offending others, to get to his purpose. There are other ways and means of doing it," Fox stressed, adding, "I invite him to come to Mexico and to see what Mexico is all about."

Fox stressed the important trade ties the two countries have, noting that the U.S. benefits from Mexican labor and has much larger trade deficits with other countries.

He urged Trump to be more responsible, and suggested that he could help: "I can convince him to think intelligently" about trade and other issues, he explained.
