Trump Responds To Report Claiming He Will Pick Nikki Haley As VP

On Saturday, Axios reported Donald Trump may consider former Republican Presidential Candidate Nikki Haley.

President Trump, however, immediately refuted the report hours after the report was released.

Trump on Truth Social responded to the report by writing, “Nikki Haley is not under consideration for the V.P. slot, but I wish her well!”

Axios claimed with anonymous sources that Trump would consider Haley if he believed she could help hip win the presidency and cover legal bills with her big donors.

Here’s what Reuters reported:

Donald Trump said on Saturday that former Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley was not being considered to be his running mate in the November election, dismissing a report by news site Axios.

“Nikki Haley is not under consideration for the V.P. slot, but I wish her well!” Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social.

Citing people familiar with the situation, Axios had reported that Trump could pick Haley if he were convinced she could help him win the presidency, avoid a potential prison sentence and cover tens of millions in legal bills if he loses.

Haley, the former South Carolina governor and a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, ended her long-shot challenge to Republican presidential frontrunner Trump in March.

Per USA Today:

Former President Donald Trump is dismissing a report that he is considering his GOP primary opponent Nikki Haley as a running mate.

Trump wrote on his social Media platform Truth Social Saturday that “Nikki Haley is not under consideration for the V.P. slot, but I wish her well!”

Axios, citing “two people familiar with the dynamic, reported that Haley was in the running to be Trump’s nominee for vice president.

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley said on March 6, 2024, a day after Super Tuesday, she is suspending her campaign. Haley spoke to media and some campaign staff, doubling down on not supporting former President Donald Trump.
The two had a contentious primary battle and Haley has not endorsed Trump. Many of her supporters also continue to be wary of the former president, a warning sign as he seeks to consolidate Republicans ahead of the general election.
