Dream team? Donald Trump may bring Sarah Palin with him to the White House if he wins the 2016 presidential election.
Though the GOP nominee has yet to be chosen, the polarizing businessman, 69, revealed in a new interview that he's already considering potential cabinet members and he would happily include Palin in his administration. Trump spoke about the former candidate for Vice President, 51, while appearing on Mama Grizzly Radio, a station that offers "Sarah Palin news 24-7."
Trump told The Palin Update that he could find a spot for the former Governor of Alaska, adding, "I'd love that."
"She really is somebody who knows what's happening and she's a special person," Trump said of Palin. "She's really a special person and I think people know that… Like me, she's got people that don't exactly love us and we understand who they are and sort of forget about that. But she has a tremendously loyal group of people out there for her."
The two Republicans famously bonded in 2011 when Palin met Trump in New York City. The Apprentice star took John McCain's former running mate for a slice of pizza in Times Square on a stop during her "One Nation" bus tour, and she made headlines for her choice to eat the New York slice with a fork and knife.
The meal, while improperly consumed, was enough to tie the two together for years. Palin stood by Trump earlier this month, defending him after he made controversial comments about McCain and questioned whether the former prisoner of war was, in fact, a war hero. Palin voiced her support for both men to CNN before praising Trump and his political priorities.
"Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional," Palin told CNN. "We're watching career politicians throw away our kids' future through bankrupting public budgets and ripping open our porous borders which, obvious to all us non-politicians, puts us at great risk."
