Donald Trump shed some light on his thought process for potentially choosing a vice presidential candidate and said he would “want to choose a politician”

Wednesday on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto Coast to Coast,” Trump told host Neil Cavuto that “it would be better for me to choose somebody that’s very political that can help us out politically because I got a lot of other qualities and I’m very political also, but I don’t think we need two guys like me.”

When asked about if he would choose someone like Chris Christie or Ben Carson, Trump said, “Well I like both and I like Ben Carson also. I like him a lot I think he is a terrific guy. And that was not his fault the other night at the debate, you couldn’t hear anything, you couldn’t hear the announcers, you know when he was stuck backstage. It was not a very auspicious opening.” (RELATED: Ben Carson Awkwardly Stands Offstage During Debate Introduction [VIDEO])

Cavuto then asked Trump if he would choose a governor or a senator or someone who was “outside the box” and Trump said, “Well I would think and I’m not even you know,  I’m discussing it with you because you’re asking because number one I want to win, and after I win I can think about this, because there are some really, really good people that we know. I would think because of the fact that while I’m very political, I’m not a politician, I would want to choose a politician. I’m a business man.”

On whether he would consider Ted Cruz, Trump replied, “Well he is a smart guy, certainly a smart guy, but you know I don’t want to get into that now Neil because I don’t want to be talking about that now, but I would say it would be better for me to choose somebody that’s very political that can help us out politically because I got a lot of other qualities and I’m very political also, but I don’t think we need two guys like me…I think in my case I’m better with a very political person. So I think I would keep it that way.”
