Joni Ernst: ‘I’d Be Extremely Honored to Be Trump’s Vice President’

Ernst appeared on the Breitbart News Memorial Day Weekend special airing on SiriusXM Patriot 125. As a veteran of the U.S. Army, she paid tirbute to the American servicemen and women who bravely gave their lives for our nation.

“I think there are a lot of really wonderful people who are being considered,” Ernst said, after being asked if she would accept the job of being Trump’s running mate if it were offered to her.

“And I think that anyone who is offered [the] position, whether it would be me or someone else, I think that it would be such an extreme honor to have that opportunity laid out. I certainly would consider that,” she continued.

“I appreciate serving the people of Iowa, I’m so thankful to be in the United States Senate,” she added.

She also discussed the increasing threat from Iran, criticizing President Joe Biden’s approach as “absolutely wrong.” She emphasized the need for Biden to confront the regime and reinstate the sanctions imposed by former President Donald Trump.

“We need to make sure that Iran can no longer do harm to its own people, but more importantly, to Israel and to American service members,” Ernst referenced the tragic incident in January where three American soldiers lost their lives in a drone attack by an Iranian-backed militia along the Jordanian border in Iraq.

The senator also addressed the rise of antisemitism on American college campuses, particularly linked to anti-Israel protests and demonstrations. “We are encouraging the filing of complaints to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.”

Ernst also talked about her push to make sure the federal government and the Chinese Communist Party take responsibility for mishandling viral research leading up to the coronavirus outbreak. She’s been leading the effort to stop the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the EcoHealth Alliance from getting more research funds.

She mentioned that EcoHealth Alliance had been “doing studies on gain-of-function,” which “we believe started the COVID-19 pandemic.”
