Donald Trump said he's open to asking Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Scott Walker to be his running mate should he win the Republican party's presidential nomination.

In an interview with USA Today, Trump said he has a mental list of potential vice vice presidents but will not reveal it. When asked about giving Rubio, a Florida senator who suspended his presidential campaign in mid-March, a job in his administration, Trump wouldn't rule anything out.

"Yes. I like Marco Rubio. Yeah. I could," Trump said.

"There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven't told anybody names. ... I do like Marco. I do like Kasich. … I like Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard. ... But I've always liked him. There are people I like, but I don't think they like me because I have hit them hard."

Trump has rubbed many of his opponents the wrong way during the campaign. Kasich, Ohio's governor, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz are the two remaining active candidates in the GOP race. Cruz has been especially vocal about keeping Trump out of the White House.

Regarding Rubio, Trump said the dust-up between the two men regarding some off-color jokes is in the past.

"He made a mistake," Trump told USA Today. "He became Don Rickles for about four days, and then I became worse than Don Rickles."

Political commentator Dick Morris told Newsmax last month he believes Trump and Kasich struck a deal that will keep Kasich in the race, which could slot Kasich in as Trump's VP.
