Report: Trump rejected meeting request from former UN ambassador Nikki Haley

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has clear ambitions to take up former President Donald Trump’s mantle in 2024, but she might have a bit of a problem.

After blasting her former boss as a political dead weight, Haley apparently sought a meeting to curry favor with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. His answer, according to reports, was a curt “no.”

Trump turns Haley down

Trump turned Haley away Wednesday when she requested a meeting in Palm Beach, where he has been residing since leaving the White House, Politico’s Playbook first reported.

According to The Hill, the former president met recently with two of the GOP’s top leaders in the House, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA), but Haley apparently wasn’t so lucky.

Haley had aligned closely with Trump during his presidency, but the former UN ambassador has been one of his loudest critics within the Republican fold in recent weeks as a civil war of sorts has broken out over the party’s future.

She all but called on conservatives to give up on Trump in a recent Politico profile, saying the former president lacked any “viability” and will find himself “further and further isolated” since the recent Capitol riot that figured into a second impeachment.

 “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture,” she said. “I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far… He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

“It’s common sense”

But Trump has made clear that he has no plans of leaving politics, and he remains the dominant figure in the GOP.

The former president is threatening primary challenges to keep his populist movement alive against a GOP establishment seeking to clamp down and regain its power, with Trump recently going on the attack against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who he called an “unsmiling political hack” unfit to lead.

It looks like Trump isn’t much fonder of Haley — and it’s far from certain that he won’t run in 2024 himself, despite Haley’s belief that he’s finished.

After she was refused a chance to kiss the ring, Haley published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal trying to thread the needle of her past Trump support with her current position — and blaming the media for pitting pro- and anti-Trump conservatives against each other.

“Here’s my take: Most of Mr. Trump’s major policies were outstanding and made America stronger, safer, and more prosperous,” she wrote. “Many of his actions since the election were wrong and will be judged harshly by history. That’s not a contradiction. It’s common sense.”

  1. President Trump has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing! He did not incite violence, he asked for calm and patriotism! He did more for America in four years than anyone for decades and Biden or whoever is pulling the puppet’s strings, has done more damage and lost so many jobs for Americans and favors illegals from anywhere over Americans!

  2. Haley is a Has been NOW just like Romney became years ago….She’d do best to “Zip-Tie” her Rino Mouth shut permanently IF she hopes to stay Even Closely “Viable” as a Republican “Rino”

  4. President Trump I will follow till the day I die. He loves America like we do. The dems. love power. The left (Biden) is now destroying America. Joe Biden and Co. are a clear and present danger to America and the American people. Haley I liked you but you destroyed that with what you said about my President Trump. You may as well go democrat. I will not vote for you UNLESS Trump endorses you. If he does endorse you I will vote for you. IF Trump does not endorse you I will not.

  5. I believe history will record two VERY significant facts: The Trump Presidency returned power to the people and accomplished more in one term than any other administration in the past one hundred years and second, the election in 2020 was the most fraudulent in the history of the republic.

  6. If you have nothing nice 🙂 to say don’t say nothing this is problem with politician’s they can’t keep their mouth shut.

  7. It is NOT Trump that needs the Republican party to survive.
    It is the Republican party that needs Trump to survive.

    If the old guard doesn’t retire OR jump on the band wagon with Trump, eight years from now the Republican Party will join the Whig party.

  8. What most of GOP, just like Haley, still don’t get is the Blue collar/middle Americans that became Republicans because of one thing, Trump DID what he said He WOULD Do! If we wanted “backstabbing” and “no loyalty” we’d be Democrats or RINOs! Haley & the rest of GOP better get a grip on Loyalty quickly or they will be forgotten long before Trump!

  9. Donald J. TRUMP will “RISE AGAIN” in 2024 as President of the USA! Watch….Kts own GOD’s Watch. Get Ready for the GREAT COME BACK!

  10. I trust President Trump knows the truth about what is behind the push for power. There is a Kabal of people world wide that have decided who is nesesary for the survival of the planet. Unfortunately I am not included and would be filtered by my age alone. I Trust Trump to negotiate a better life for our families. The current crop of politicians, “left or right”, are planning in the “short term” only and their opportunity at wealth to float them to “elite status”, above the base line, and survival.
    Maybe this is not greed but fear. Definately not fear of relgion but of man.

  11. Good for Trump, he made the right decision. I’m guessing Haley hasn’t heard the saying, “don’t burn your bridges behind you.” Well, Trump just gave her a crash course on the subject.

    The first time I ever set my eyes and ears on Haley was after a Trump debate. Her words were not kind and left me with an unfavorable opinion of her. Turning on Trump during his need for support from his party hasn’t changed my unfavorable opinion of her. She thinks and talks straight from the pages of the left’s book. I think she will live to regret that decision along with other Republican turncoats.

  12. Nicely said Sue. What goes around comes around to bite you. If you have nothing nice to say about our President Trump then don’t say anything at all. At least we had a great economy and were energy independent. Now with Biden and the Ho. We are doomed in living the American dream.

  13. i have been watching all the crap the demacrats and one thing stuck in my mind . Obama said he was going to have a third term .Since i saw obama and biden go in to the white house together arm and arm . this is not biden the president obama is thru biden he is just a puppet.

  14. Haley is a rat rino that is just another run of the mill Romney in a clown suit that calls herself a Republican! I will NEVER vote for her as I couldn’t trust her any more than the traitors in the white house now!

  15. First of all you POS Haley, DJT was a victim of a fraud election and anyone with half a brain and follows any honest media (although they are hard to find these days) knows that and the Jan 6 disturbance was planned and I’m sure Piglosi and crew were part of it. So for you to say that DJT made bad choices shows you don’t have half a brain.


  17. Nikki is a turncoat. He has enough on his plate having to straighten out the mess Biden is causing. Trump is not finished, not 2024, he won 2020 and will take his place as President !
