Donald Trump is taking the next step on his march to the White House: choosing a potential Vice President. And some of the candidates are pretty surprising!

Appearing on Fox News, Trump told Bill O' Reilly that choosing Ted Cruz as a running mate was not out of the question.

This week, Cruz and Trump's feud escalated after Cruz called Trump "amoral" and a "pathological liar" on TV. Cruz attacked the probable GOP candidate after Trump said Cruz's father had been linked to JFK killer Lee Harvey Oswald.

"This morning Donald Trump went on national television and attacked my father," Cruz said. "…Now let's be clear, this is nuts. This is not a reasonable position. This is just kooky."

Trump then fired back at Cruz in a statement writing, "Over the last week, I have watched Lyin' Ted become more and more unhinged as he is unable to react under the pressure and stress of losing, in all cases, by landslides."

Cruz lost yet again to Trump in Indiana's GOP primary on Tuesday, making Trump the presumptive Republican nominee. And now Trump seems to be going easy on his former foe, calling Cruz "a strong competitor."

"He said some things and he made up some things and he took things that were said out of context, but you know I understand it," Trump said. "It's not easy. It's not easy for him. He was in a very tough position."

O'Reilly then asked Trump if he would consider Cruz to be part of his administration if elected president.

"It's something we would think about," Trump said.

Trump said he hasn't spoken to Cruz or John Kasich since they dropped out of their bids for the presidency, but he also admitted that he would consider Marco Rubio for the VP spot — the same man he dubbed "Little Marco."

"Marco and I have gotten along very well," Trump admitted.

But Trump assured O'Reilly that his campaign slogan would not be "Vote For Big Don and Little Marco."
