Disturbing rumors surfaced on the presidential campaign trail that Donald Trump was considering picking Nikki Haley as his running mate if Trump won the GOP presidential nomination.
All hell proceeded to break loose.
And Donald Trump made this shocking announcement about picking Nikki Haley for vice president.
Daughter-in-law Lara Trump set off the firestorm when she told Newsmax “never say never” to the prospect of Trump tapping the RINO Haley to fill out the ticket.
The Ron DeSantis campaign seized on that comment to fan the flames that Trump and Haley had a secret deal in place to run together in 2024.
That set off panic among Trump allies who waged a very public campaign to warn Trump that picking Haley – who is the handpicked candidate of the RINO establishment – would spell doom for his chances to win in 2024.
Tucker Carlson said he would campaign for Trump’s defeat should he select Haley.
“I would not only not vote for that ticket, I would advocate against it as strongly as I could,” Carlson announced at the Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest event.
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene posted on social media that Haley represented the globalist Bush establishment that Trump and the MAGA movement displaced in 2016.
Tapping Haley as his VP, Greene warned, would represent a betrayal of the Trump base that could result in the death of the MAGA movement.
“MAGA would revolt if Nikki Haley were to even be given an internship in Trump’s next administration. She represents the neocon establishment America last wing of the Republican Party that we are absolutely done with. Also, she lied and said she would not run against Trump,” Greene wrote.
For eight years establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney plotted for a Bush restoration.
Trump won in 2016 campaigning against GOP elites stabbing their base in the back by supporting amnesty, endless foreign wars and rolling over and dying for the left in the culture war.
Nikki Haley is the living embodiment of the pre-Trump GOP where the likes of Romney, McConnell, Cheney, Ryan and John McCain ruled the roost.
In 2016 Haley called Trump a bigot for supporting a border wall and a so-called “Muslim ban.”
Haley made her name in national politics in surrendering to the woke left on taking down the Confederate flag.
During the summer of 2020 Haley embraced the Black Lives Matter movement and declared every American needed to suffer for George Floyd’s death by promoting the lie that America was a racist country.
When Haley announced her bid for the White House, she staked her campaign on the big difference with Donald Trump being that she would put Ukraine first by supporting a blank check for the war in Ukraine for as long as it took.
Haley’s making her move in New Hampshire as the GOP’s RINO establishment coalesces around her.
The Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity Action – which supports amnesty for illegal aliens and soft-on-crime policies favored by Soros prosecutors and BLM – endorsed Haley and pledged to spend $70 million on her behalf.
Wall Street donors reportedly planned to pump millions of dollars into her campaign to keep Haley alive past Super Tuesday in the hope that Trump’s legal issues would take him out.
Haley began to surge in New Hampshire where a St. Anselm College poll showed her trailing Trump 44 to 29 percent.
In that poll, Haley’s support came from Democrats and undeclared voters.
Trump routed Haley among Republicans, 56 to 22 percent, whereas Haley won 62 percent of Democrats and led Trump 37 to 32 percent with undeclared voters.
In response to the GOP establishment’s laying of hands on Haley, Trump ripped Haley as a stooge for the globalist RINOs that drove the GOP base into a state of rebellion in the first place.
“Americans For Chinese Prosperity (Action?) is a Globalist CON JOB that is big on giving our Country away to China and other countries throughout the World. They Endorsed ‘Birdbrain’ because that has always been where her sympathies lie. She is a Globalist RINO, much like ‘Rob’ DeSanctimonious, but not a smart one, and I got to see that up close and personal. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” Trump posted on Truth Social.
After the Mike Pence experience, Trump wants a vice president who will demonstrate loyalty.
Trump’s comments about Haley’s true loyalties lying with the D.C. swamp make it clear Trump believes Haley doesn’t meet his main criteria to be vice president.
That declaration by Trump should let his supporters breathe easier that he wouldn’t make the mistake of putting Haley on the ticket.
