An interesting new book is The Method to the Madness about Trump's history and his longtime fascination with politics. The authors are a pair of NYC journalists, one from the New York Times, and one from the NY Post. They have both followed Trump for decades.

In 1999, Trump was toying with the idea of running for President on the Reform Party ticket. He was interviewed by Larry King about this on Oct 8, 1999:

Yet the gaggle of the gormless, the current Democratic field, continue to insist that Trump is a 'white supremacist.' Beto, Warren, Bernie, Gillibrand, Yang, and Buttigieg have all said so explicitly:
Seriously??? A candidate who wanted a black female as running mate is a white supremacist?

My Gov. Jay Inslee demurred, calling him only a 'white nationalist,' whatever that means. My current plans are to go fishing and hiking on Nov. 3 next year.

Of course, people forget that Trump was once a Democrat.

What I find most interesting about your story is that it shows, even then, how Trump gravitated to big-name people with no experience. Probably even then he spent so little time seriously studying issues that he had no idea what politicians might have been more suitable running mates. He only knows about celebrity-types that he's seen on TV.
