Trump was asked by "Fox and Friends" hosts whether they should tell the former House Speaker that he's on the VP shortlist.

"Sure, why not, he's a great guy, you might as well," the presumptive GOP nominee responded. "Newt is such a great guy, he's been such a great supporter, he's a tremendous guy."
 
"But he's on the shortlist, right?" a host asked.
 
"Absolutely. I'll say yes, because he's been such a supporter. I mean, anybody that supports me is on the shortlist as far as I'm concerned," Trump said. 
 
Trump said he'll announce his running mate at the GOP convention in July. Trump recalled actor Clint Eastwood speaking at the party's last convention in 2012, joking, "We'll put Clint on the shortlist."
 
He also brushed off the argument he should adopt a more presidential tone, one day after his chief strategist, Paul Manafort, reportedly told GOP aides on Capitol Hill that Trump's "behavior can be changed."
 
"Well I don't think we want to change it too much," Trump said. "If we're winning and going to the World Series, I don't know if we want to change our lineup too much.

"I don't want to really change. I am who I am," he added, listing off campaign promises. "I don't know, maybe I shouldn't change too much."
