Derek Jeter To Be Donald Trump’s Running Mate?

Derek Jeter

Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says being Donald Trump’s running mate would be too much work for him to handle in retirement. 

Jeter supported Obama in the past but like many athletes from the post-Michael Jordan generation, Jeter has never really gotten involved with politics. His answer obviously was one that didn’t offend anybody. However, it’s unlikely that Jeter went from a Barack Obama Democrat to a Donald Trump Republican in just a few short years. 

Jeter has expressed interest in owning a MLB team in the past and brought it up again during his Cuba trip.

Jeter also joined Obama in Cuba at a baseball game.

It seems like they are still cool. 

Twitter had fun with the news Jeter was asked to take up the position.
