Cain, who is not an economist, was forced to drop his 2012 White House hopes after accusations by five different women of sexual misconduct.
He is best known for his "9-9-9" tax policies that were not actual policies and were never fully fleshed out. Essentially, Cain proposed a 9% personal income tax, a 9% federal sales tax, and a 9% corporate tax, but there were no studies done that explained how they would affect the U.S. economy.
A former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, Cain's positions on same-sex marriage abortion, and other social issues place him on the hard core, far right wing conservative spectrum.
Cain's impending nomination follows Trump's also disastrous choice of Stephen Moore, a former Fox News and CNN analyst associated with right wing think tanks and activist organizations.
Moore wrote a book praising Trump's economic "plans" and called for him to be awarded a Nobel prize.
Moore, it was revealed after Trump nominated him, owes the IRS $75,000, and owed his ex-wife hundreds of thousands of dollars. She also has accused him of flaunting his extramarital affairs in her face.
Here is video from 2011 of one of Cain's accusers:
