(TheProudRepublic.com) – Taking a strong stance, Donald Trump Jr., the former president’s eldest son, has excluded one possible scenario for the 2024 presidential ticket of the Republican Party, as he has insisted that there is no way for his father to have rival Nikki Haley as his running mate.
Trump Jr. recently expressed his opposition to the idea of former South Carolina Governor and former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley becoming the running mate for his father, former President Donald Trump, in the 2024 election.
Haley, currently a contender for the GOP presidential nomination, significantly trails Donald Trump in the polls.
She is, however, a favored choice among certain political circles to be Trump’s vice-presidential candidate, Breitbart News reports.
Trump Jr. argued that Haley’s views on various issues, including foreign policy, free speech, government spending, and social policies, are not aligned with the “America First” agenda.
He highlighted her positions on several matters, saying Haley believed in mandatory verification of every social media user with their real name.
She also supported using American taxpayer funds to help Ukraine defend from the massive military invasion of Putin’s Russia.
Haley argues against governmental interference in cases where parents choose to subject their children to irreversible transgender surgery.
She favors hiring migrants for jobs that would typically be offered to better-paid American workers.
“I wouldn’t have her, and I would go to great lengths to make sure that that doesn’t happen,” Trump Jr. told Newsmax.
“Nikki Haley wants never-ending wars. She’s a puppet of the establishment in Washington, DC. She’s the new favorite candidate of the billionaire class because they want control — no different than academia and Harvard and using their billions to exercise influence,” he argued.
Trump Jr. also mentioned that the establishment’s support for Haley as vice president is problematic because it would mean “her… trying to destroy Donald Trump from within forever.”
“She is now the preferred candidate,” he further stated.
Donald Trump has also voiced his disapproval of the establishment’s efforts to advance Haley’s candidacy.
He labeled her a “Birdbrain” and a “Globalist RINO” on his Truth Social platform.
“They Endorsed ‘Birdbrain’ because that has always been where her sympathies lie. She is a Globalist RINO, much like ‘Rob’ DeSanctimonious, but not a smart one, and I got to see that up close and personal. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” Trump wrote.
