After receiving an endorsement from Sarah Palin Tuesday, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said there would be a place for the former Alaska governor in his administration.

“Certainly, there would be a role somewhere in the administration, if she wanted, and I'm not sure that she does want that, but there would certainly be a role,” Trump told NBC’s “Today Show” this morning in a phone interview.

But Trump stressed that Palin never broached the subject: “She never made a deal like so many people want to try to make deals. She just said, ‘I really like what's going on. It's an amazing thing. I've never seen anything like it in politics.’”

As for Palin potentially being his running mate, he said, “I don't think that it would be something she'd want to do. She's been through that,” referring to 2008 when Palin was Sen. John McCain’s pick for vice president.

Trump also revealed that Palin was the one who reached out to him about endorsing the GOP front-runner.

“We've known each other for a long time," he said. "I've always liked her a lot and respected her a lot and she called."
