Don Jr. claims he'll go to 'great lengths' to exclude Nikki Haley as Trump's VP

 December 27, 2023

Former first son Donald Trump Jr. stated that he would "go to great lengths" to prevent former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley from becoming his father's vice president. 

It has been reported by several sources that former President Donald Trump may appoint Haley as his vice president in the event that he is successful in securing the nomination of the Republican Party for president in 2024.

Don Jr.'s Comments

“I wouldn’t have her and I would go to great lengths to make sure that that doesn’t happen,” Don Jr. said in a recent interview as Just The News reported.

“Nikki Haley wants never-ending wars," Don Jr. said in the interview.

"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.”

Other Trump allies, including Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, have opposed this notion.

"MAGA would revolt if Nikki Haley were to even be given an internship in Trump’s next administration," Greene wrote on social media earlier this month.

"She represents the neocon establishment America last wing of the Republican Party that we are absolutely done with," she added. "Also, she lied and said she would not run against Trump."

Other Potential Candidates

On the campaign front for Trump, no fresh  events were scheduled for Trump last week but the Republican frontrunner's campaign has added seven events in the past few days, two of which feature notable Republican women who may run for vice president.

Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota will speak in Sioux City, Iowa, at 7 p.m. CST on Jan. 3, andGreene will talk in Keokuk, Iowa, on Jan. 4.

Both have spoken for the former president at prior campaign stops, but Iowa's first-in-nation caucuses will highlight their next appearances. On Jan. 15, Hawkeye State voters will choose a GOP candidate to face President Joe Biden on the Nov. 5, 2024 ballot.

Both women want to be Trump's running mate. Their stump speeches coincide with growing speculation that President Trump may choose a woman as his running mate.

He told "Meet the Press" in September that he loved the "concept" of a female running partner. Since then, many, including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, have said a woman is destined for the post.

"I believe that President Trump will have a female" as his VP, Bannon told Sean Spicer on a Dec. 15 podcast.
