With Donald Trump dominating GOP primary polling speculation is running wild about who he will select as his Vice President.
He gave an interview to Just The News and was asked about who he might pick.
Trump said he is not considering anyone at this point and that he believes Nikki Haley’s decision to run “was somewhat disloyal.”
Just The News reported:
Turning his attention to the primary race with the Iowa caucuses less than three weeks away, Trump directly disputed media speculation he might consider challenger Nikki Haley, his former U.N. ambassador, for vice president. He said he has no short list at all right now because he focused on winning the primaries.
“No, I’m not considering anybody at this point,” the former president said. “Look, I want to win. And one thing I will say, and I’ve watched this for a long time, the vice president has virtually no impact. You can go back all throughout history, whoever the choice of vice president says virtually no impact as to who is going to get a nomination to get elected.”
Trump said he believes he had a good rapport with Haley but felt she was a bit disloyal when she decided to run against him.
“Nikki, I know very well. And I actually got along with very well, and she wasn’t going to run. She said I was a great president and she would not run as long as I ran. And then one day she decided to run. So you know, I thought that was somewhat disloyal,” he said. “… So I was a little bit surprised at that. But that’s a politician.”
Conservatives have blasted the idea of Nikki Haley being Trump’s vice president.
Tucker Carlson went as far as to say he would advocate the ticket if Nikki Haley was the vice president.
Conservative Brief reported:
During a live discussion ahead of the Christmas holiday last week hosted by “Timcast” podcaster Tim Pool at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest, the host asked Carlson, “Would you vote for Trump if he chose Nikki as VP?”
Carlson, whose name has been mentioned as a potential Trump running mate as well, responded: “I would not only not vote for that ticket, I would advocate against it as strongly as I could.”
“That’s just poison. I mean, here’s someone who’s actively opposed to the interests of the country I grew up in, who endorsed the BLM riots, and who is not left but is neoliberal in the darkest, most – speaking of nihilist – nihilistic way, and has no real popular support, is a creature of the oligarchs,” he continued. “So yeah, that would be– that would be reason to oppose the ticket.
