Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says in a new interview that he is possibly interested in becoming Donald Trump’s running mate should the businessman secure the GOP nomination.

“I certainly would sit down and discuss it with him,” he told Fox Business host Neil Cavuto today. But he added that he would only take the running mate spot if he determined that he and Trump share a “philosophical alignment.”

“I would have to have major philosophical alignment with whoever it was,” he said. “I would have to have guarantees that I could do some substantial things.”

During the interview Carson would not say if thee are any candidates he would decline to run with as the vice presidential nominee.
