Sarah Palin serving in a Trump administration? 'I'd love that,' he says

Story highlights

  • "She really is somebody who knows what's happening and she's a special person," Trump said
  • Palin called Trump a hero last week after Trump questioned Sen. John McCain's military heroism

Washington (CNN)If Donald Trump takes the White House, Sarah Palin might have an invitation to join his team.

The real estate mogul went on "The Palin Update" Monday -- a radio show airing on Mama Grizzly Radio, a station that offers 24-hour news about Palin and issues related to her -- telling host Kevin Scholla that he would consider having the former Alaska governor in an official capacity in a Trump administration.
    "I'd love that," said Trump, who didn't specify what kind of a position he sees for her. "Because she really is somebody who knows what's happening and she's a special person. She's really a special person and I think people know that."
    Trump praised the former Alaska governor as someone whose voice still matters with voters.
    "I still have people saying, 'Get Sarah's support! Get Sarah's support!' No matter where I go," Trump said. "Everybody loves her."
    Palin can relate to Trump's experience of not being well liked for speaking her mind, he added.
    "Like me, she's got people that don't exactly love us and we understand who they are and sort of forget about that," he said. "But she has a tremendously loyal group of people out there for her."
    Palin, who was Sen. John McCain's running mate in 2008, called Trump a hero last week after Trump questioned McCain's military heroism.
    "Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional," Palin told CNN.
