Former President Donald Trump appeared to dismiss the idea of selecting former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley as his running mate during a speech in Concord, New Hampshire.

Haley, who has been actively campaigning in the state and secured an endorsement from New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, has consistently polled in second place, trailing Trump.

Trump’s direct statement against Haley marks a shift from his previous hints at a potential Haley ticket.

“She is not presidential timber,” Trump said. “Now, when I say that, that probably means that she’s not going to be chosen as the vice president.”

“Now, you can go, you can go and you can say certain things, you know, ‘I don’t like them and this.’ But when you say certain things, it sort of takes them out of play, right? I can’t say, ‘she’s not of the timber to be a vice-‘ And then say, ‘ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce that I’ve picked…’ Do you understand?”

Key allies like Steve Bannon and Tucker Carlson have strongly advised against the idea, with Bannon suggesting a female running mate but emphasizing it shouldn’t be Haley.

Instead, other potential vice-presidential contenders include Vivek Ramaswamy, Tucker Carlson, Rep. Elise Stefanik, Gov. Kristi Noem, Ben Carson, and Tulsi Gabbard.
