Who Trump spent Independence Day with has VP rumor mill on maximum overdrive

Donald Trump spent part of his Independence Day meeting with Sen. Joni Ernst, sparking rumors about a vice presidential pick.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee posted a message Saturday on Twitter about the upcoming meeting.

Despite the speculation unleashed about the meeting, the Iowa senator released a statement saying the two discussed the best path forward for the country, with no comments about her joining Trump as his running mate.

Nevertheless, the rumor mill had been set in motion with reactions to the meeting.

Though there has been no official word, social media users weighed in on the possibility of a Trump/Ernst ticket, with some praising the idea and others not so much.

Trump also met with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Saturday, apparently expanding the list of possible running mates.
