( – Donald Trump Jr. has dismissed the idea of Nikki Haley as his dad’s running mate.

Taking to X, Donald Trump Jr. addressed talk on the issue and suggested Haley, who he described as the “puppet” of Democratic warmongerers and billionaires, would be a “wonderful choice” if his father, former President Donald Trump, wanted to be “impeached within 7 seconds of being sworn in.” He argued that the former South Carolina Governor is his father’s opponents’ “last hope.”

Haley, who was the ambassador to the United Nations during Trump’s presidency, continued to garner support (and votes) in primary campaigns months after she had dropped out.

Since dropping out, the former South Carolina governor has refused to formally endorse Trump, only acknowledging she’d vote for him when he emerges as the GOP’s Presidential pick. Even then, she suggested she would only be voting for him in the absence of a better candidate.

Trump has also stated he wouldn’t choose Haley to be his running mate.

In Indiana’s Republican primary, Haley received 128,000 votes — claiming 22 percent overall.

In Pennsylvania, she received 157,000 in the GOP primary, capturing almost 17 percent of the vote.

Two weeks after she ended her candidacy, Haley managed to acquire 18 percent of Arizona’s vote, 14 percent of Florida’s vote, and 13 percent in Georgia, all battleground states.

Following Haley’s decision to drop out of the GOP’s race, President Joe Biden’s campaign has attempted to court Haley’s voters, who Trump said would be “permanently barred from the MAGA camp.” When Haley dropped out, she stated it was up to Trump to properly earn her supporters’ votes.

While Trump hasn’t made any specific appeal to Haley’s supporters, Biden’s campaign has attempted to get them to support his reelection bid.

After Trump Jr.’s post, Ammar Moussa, director of Biden’s campaign rapid response tweeted, “Trump world attacking Nikki Haley,” suggesting this could help build a “winning coalition.”
