Trump Jr. accuses Haley of being a puppet of the establishment
Donald Trump Jr. has launched a scathing attack on former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, claiming he would go to great lengths to prevent her from being chosen as his father’s running mate in any future election. Speaking on Newsmax’s “The Balance,” Trump Jr. accused Haley of being a puppet of the Washington D.C. establishment and the billionaire class who seek to control and influence political outcomes.
Haley labeled as a potential saboteur
Trump Jr. further suggested that if Haley were selected as a running mate, she would attempt to undermine his father’s campaign “from within.” He emphasized his strong opposition, stating, “No, I would not want Nikki Haley to be there. All you’d get is her and her team trying to destroy Donald Trump from within, forever.” Trump Jr. expressed concerns that Haley’s appointment would result in a catastrophic disaster for the Trump campaign.
Haley criticizes Trump’s potential return to White House
Trump Jr.’s comments came in response to recent remarks by Nikki Haley, where she voiced her opposition to the former president’s return to the White House. Haley argued that Trump’s presence would only bring further chaos to the country, saying, “Our world is on fire, and you can’t defeat Democrat chaos with Republican chaos, and Donald Trump brings us chaos.” She firmly stated her belief that Trump is not the right person to be president.
Lara Trump doesn’t rule out Haley as potential running mate
In contrast to Trump Jr.’s strong stance against Nikki Haley as a running mate, Lara Trump, Trump Jr.’s sister-in-law, expressed a more open perspective. While speaking to Newsmax, she acknowledged that Trump choosing Haley was not entirely out of the realm of possibility, stating, “Crazier things have happened. I don’t know. I would never say never with Donald J. Trump. Never say never.”
Response from Haley pending
Fox News Digital has reached out to Nikki Haley for a response to Donald Trump Jr.’s criticisms, but no official statement has been issued at this time. The ongoing disagreement between the Trump family and Haley highlights the divisions within the Republican Party as they navigate potential future political campaigns.
