Business tycoon Trump is in the running for the nomination to be the U.S. Republican party's 2016 presidential candidate, and Hogan has now spoken out to reveal he wants to be the mogul's right-hand man.

Asked about the election, Hogan tells, "I don't want to be in the ring with any candidates. I want to be Trump's running mate... Did you hear that? Vice President Hogan?"

He also discussed his feud with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Vince MCMahon, who has erased all of Hogan's history from the WWE website after the wrestler was caught on tape apparently using racist abuse.

Hogan insists there is no bad blood over the incident, saying, "I love those guys. They're my family. The only hard feelings I've got against Vince will be when I get him in the ring again. It'll be a replay of Wrestlemania XIX."
