Former President Donald Trump and his family could be heading for a vicious infighting after the reports emerged that the President is considering former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley as his running mate.
Reports emerged last week that Trump was asking his allies what they think of Haley as his running mate.
The former president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., remains adamant that he does not want Haley and that he would do everything in his power to see that it does not happen.

“I wouldn’t have her and I would go to great lengths to make sure that that doesn’t happen,” he told Newsmax’s Eric Bolling in a recent interview. “Nikki Haley wants never-ending wars. She’s a puppet of the establishment in Washington, DC. She’s the new favorite candidate of the billionaire class because they want control— no different than academia and Harvard and using their billions to exercise influence.”

On the other hand, Trump Jr.’s sister-in-law, Lara Trump, has expressed openness to the prospect of having Haley as Trump’s running mate.
“Crazier things have happened,” Lara Trump told Newsmax’s Eric Bolling. “I don’t know, I would never say never with Donald J. Trump.”
Some of Trump’s supporters, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), are against Haley running as Trump’s vice president. The Georgia lawmaker previously said there would be a revolt among Trump’s core base if he picked Haley.
“MAGA would revolt if Nikki Haley were to even be given an internship in Trump’s next administration,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote on X. “She represents the neocon establishment America last wing of the Republican Party that we are absolutely done with.”

Former Fox News Host Tucker Carlson said picking Haley as Trump’s running mate is the only reason why he would not support the former president in 2024. Carlson said he would not only oppose the ticket but would also advocate against it.
Tucker Carlson on whether he would vote for Trump if he chose Nikki Haley as VP:
“I would not only not vote for that ticket, I would advocate against it as strongly as I could.”
