On Monday, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon predicted that a pivotal dispute would arise in the spring regarding the nomination of Nikki Haley as running mate for former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election.
Bannon made a prognostication during an interview with Jack Posobiec on Human Events, stating, “We are anticipating a significant conflict that will occur in the Spring.”
He subsequently proceeded:
They’re gonna try to force Nikki on the ticket. They’ll say Trump needs a woman, Nikki on the ticket, she balances things and she can bring together that 15% of Never Trumpers in the Republican party. We’re going to have to have that fight. If Nikki Haley is in this administration in any capacity, it will fail. She’s a viper. She’s a viper and once she gets in there, she’ll try to run it as prime minister. She’ll try to be Dick Cheney. Her to Trump will be just like Dick Cheney to Bush. That’s what she’ll try to do.
CBS News recently reported that Trump had been consulting with his advisers regarding Nikki Haley’s viability as a potential vice presidential candidate. This transpired in spite of substantial resistance from allies of Trump.
Tucker Carlson, a former Fox News anchor, has declared his intention to oppose Haley’s candidacy for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump. Likewise, Donald Trump Jr. declared his intention to implement substantial measures in order to avert the occurrence of such a confluence.
