Donald Trump rules out Nikki Haley as potential vice president

Former President Donald Trump, once again a candidate for the White House, assured Saturday May 11 that his ex-Republican rival Nikki Haley was not among the people he was considering for the post of vice-president.

There are many hypotheses regarding the name that the candidate will name as his running mate for the November presidential election against Democrat Joe Biden.

Among the names circulating the most are Senators Tim Scott and J.D Vance and New York State Representative Elise Stefanik. But some rumors also mentioned the name of Nikki Haley, his last rival in the Republican primaries.

“Nikki Haley is not one of the people I am considering for vice president,” the Republican candidate announced on Truth, his own social network, cutting short speculation. “But I wish him all the happiness in the world! ", he added.

The choice of Nikki Haley, former American ambassador to the UN, whom Donald Trump has long nicknamed "sparrow brain", would have been surprising. But the former governor of South Carolina is very popular with moderate and independent Republican voters, votes that Joe Biden could take from Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's entourage refused to give details on the profile preferred by the septuagenarian candidate. “Anyone who claims to know who or when President Trump will choose his vice president is lying,” one of his advisers said. Unless that person's name is Donald Trump. »
