Nikki Haley says no chance of being Trump VP, says she ‘would’ve gotten out already’

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley says there is zero chance of her becoming the vice presidential nominee alongside former President Donald Trump.Speaking with Fox News’s Bret Baier in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, during the final days of her campaigning in the state.”We’re gonna see what happens tomorrow,” Haley told Baier. “But look, the problem when people say, ‘Why is she doing this? Why is she doing that?’ At first, they were like, ‘She’s doing this because she wants to be vice president.’ I think ’we’ve pretty much settled that. I’ve said it for months, it’s done.” TRUMP REVEALS VP SHORTLIST INCLUDES DESANTIS, SCOTT, RAMASWAMY, NOEM, DONALDS, GABBARD”I wouldn’t be doing this if I was worried about a political future,” she added. “I would’ve gotten out already. I’m doing this trying to wake up our country.”Trump previously acknowledged during a Fox News townhall that Ron DeSantis, Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, Kristi Noem, Bryon Donalds and Tulsi Gabbard are on his running mate shortlist. Trump has many times reiterated that he has ruled out Haley as his running mate, despite some Republicans who had hoped for a combined ticket.TRUMP EXPECTED TO MOVE CLOSER TO CLINCHING GOP PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION WITH LIKELY BIG WIN OVER HALEY IN SCAsked on Friday if she would be willing to drop out of the Republican primary in order to team up with Democratic candidate Rep.
