    Former U.S. Vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R), and Donald Trump walk towards a limo after leaving Trump Tower, at 56th Street and 5th Avenue, on May 31, 2011 in New York City.

    Donald Trump said he'd "love" to have former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as a member of his cabinet if he is elected president. 

    Asked on Sarah Palin's Mama Grizz Radio's "The Palin Update with Kevin Scholla" whether he'd include Palin in his administration, Trump responded "I'd love that."

    "She really is somebody that knows what's happening. She's a special person, she's really a special person," he said. "She's got a following that's unbelievable."

    Trump said he's always admired the former Alaska governor's talent for taking criticism in stride.

    "One of things I most admire so much about her is that she took so much nonsense, lies, disgusting lies," he said. "And she handles it so well. She's tough and smart and just a great woman."
