Former President Donald Trump is reportedly considering former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley as his vice presidential running mate if he wins the Republican Party presidential primary.

While some allies have advised against the idea, others have suggested it.

Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said, “If I was a political person, and I was going to advise somebody, you’re going to pick the vice president that’s about addition, not subtraction.”

“So you’re not going to pick somebody that already equates to you,” he continued.

“Now if I was picking for purely political decisions, what it looks like today is the anti-Trump vote is going to Nikki Haley,” said McCarthy.

According to POLITICO, Trump “has also pressed allies for their impressions of other prominent Republicans in recent months including former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Sens. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Byron Donalds (R-Fl.) and Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and Arizona Republican Kari Lake.”

The discussion about Haley as Trump’s VP pick has gained attention, with conflicting statements from various sources.

Additionally, there are mentions of other potential prominent Republicans being considered for the role.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said, “When she hasn’t ruled out being his vice president, I don’t think you could take her as a serious contender against him.”

“Ron DeSantis and I have both ruled out accepting the vice presidency from Donald Trump. Nikki Haley has not,” he continued.

“People that are for Trump, I’m their next choice,” said Ron DeSantis.

“If everyone else got out but me and Trump, all these other candidates, I would get that support because they’d see that I’m the only one that can beat him. There’s a reason why they spend money against me, Haley and Trump spend money against me,” he continued.

“He has not spent any money against her. And she has not spent any money against him. She will not answer directly, and she owes you an answer to this, will she accept a vice presidential nomination from Donald Trump? Yes or no?” said DeSantis.
