Speculation grew over the weekend that presumptive presidential candidate Donald Trump has a list of vice president candidates -- John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Chris Christie.
"Those are all people on our list," Ben Carson told the Washington Post.
Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon who was once a presidential candidate, is part of Trump's vice presidential search committee.
Carson, however, clarified his comments saying he's "going to say yes to everybody, everybody could potentially be considered, doesn’t mean they are on the shortlist."
On Twitter, Trump fired back at the Washington Post report saying that "Marco Rubio and most others mentioned are NOT under consideration."
Last week Rubio said he did not want to be on Trump's ticket.
"My differences with Donald, both my reservations about his campaign and my policy differences with him are well-documented," Rubio told CNN.
