Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently stated on Monday that he would fight former President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts if Trump picked Nikki Haley as his running mate via Mediaite.
During a live discussion hosted by Tim Pool at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest, Pool asked Carlson, “Would you vote for Trump if he chose Nikki as VP?”
Carlson – who himself has been floated as Trump’s potential running mate – replied, “I would not only not vote for that ticket, I would advocate against it as strongly as I could.”
“That’s just poison. I mean, here’s someone who’s actively opposed to the interests of the country I grew up in, who endorsed the BLM riots, and who is not left, but is neoliberal in the darkest, most – speaking of nihilist – nihilistic way, and has no real popular support, is a creature of the oligarchs. So yeah, that would be– that would be reason to oppose the ticket.”
It has been noted that the possibility of a Trump-Haley ticket has been floated in recent weeks as Haley has overtaken Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in some polls for second place in the Republican primary.
Last week, Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump refused to rule out the possibility of a Trump-Haley ticket, telling Newsmax host Eric Bolling, “Crazier things have happened. I don’t know. I would never say never with Donald J. Trump. Never say never.”
Trump himself, however, has called the idea “unlikely.”
