Noem planning book amid Trump VP speculation

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R), whose name has circulated as a possible running mate for former President Trump, is coming out with a new book.

The description of her book online says she “explains how the country is not going back to the Republican party of the 2000s. And that’s a good thing. This book is packed with surprising stories and practical lessons from the front lines of the battle. And she names names.”

“So many times, almost on a daily basis, I hear people talking about wanting to go back to the old days of Mitt Romney, Cheney, the Bushes, you know, when Republicans could reset themselves back to these people that were steady and spoke perfectly. Yet they’re the ones who created the swamp that we have to deal with now,” Noem told Fox News.

She added, “There’s no going back. They need to adjust their perspective and realize that Trump broke politics — he just did — and that that’s a good thing.”

Fox News reported the book is due for release in May.

Her team didn’t immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment. Trump has already endorsed the book.

“A great new book by Governor Kristi Noem, is a hard hitting story of a very interesting life,” Trump posted on his TruthSocial platform with a link to the book.

Trump mentioned Noem on Sunday when asked about possible picks for vice president. She has previously said she “absolutely” would jump at the chance.

It’s not Noem’s first tome. She also penned “No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward,” which went on to become a New York Times bestseller, in 2022.

Noem, 52, is the first female governor of South Dakota and has maintained close ties with Trump since he endorsed her gubernatorial campaign in 2018.

The conservative firebrand, who notably joined Trump to celebrate the July 4 holiday at Mount Rushmore in 2020, won a second gubernatorial bid in 2022.

She joined him again in September for a rally at the historical site. She later said she would agree to be Trump’s No. 2 “absolutely … in a heartbeat.”
