The Republican campaign for Donald Trump’s running mate is intensifying, with Nikki Haley emerging as a formidable opponent.

Critics warn that her selection as vice president would lead to an intra-party coup, as GOP senators might seek to remove Trump from office and elevate the more traditionalist Haley.

The pushback against Haley’s potential nomination is also a proxy war over foreign policy, with hawks supporting her and non-interventionists opposing her.

“Nikki Haley as VP would be an establishment neocon fantasy and a MAGA nightmare,” Rep. Matt Gaetz said. “On Day One she would convert the Naval Observatory into an anti-Trump, resistance headquarters, undermining him at every step.”

“Nikki Haley wants to be in every war the world has to offer,” Donald Trump Jr. said.

“The same people who don’t like her don’t like me,” Sen. Lindsey Graham said.

“I think he would pick her if he thought it would help him win,” Graham said. “But the longer it goes and the more scar tissue accumulates the less likely it is.”

The eventual selection represents a test of Trump’s belief in his ability to defeat President Biden and the extent to which he needs help to win.

Various potential candidates are being considered, with loyalty, appearance, and conduct being crucial factors in the decision-making process.

“Whichever way the political winds blow is where she goes, and we cannot trust our country to somebody like that either,” Gov. Kristi Noem said.
