( – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) staunchly opposes the notion of former President Trump, the leading contender for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, selecting Nikki Haley as his running mate for the general election.

In her candid expression on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, Greene asserted that “MAGA supporters would vehemently object if Nikki Haley were even considered for an internship in Trump’s forthcoming administration.” The term “MAGA” refers to the dedicated followers of Trump’s Make America Great Again movement.

Greene went on to emphasize, “She epitomizes the neoconservative, ‘America last’ faction of the Republican Party that we have unequivocally moved past. Moreover, she reneged on her commitment not to run against Trump.”

Recognized as a prominent figure within Trump’s MAGA base, Greene’s response comes in reaction to increasing speculation about a potential Trump-Haley ticket. Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, has garnered considerable support among Republican primary voters who have grown disenchanted with the former president. Notably, Trump’s criticism has been more frequently directed at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis than at Haley.

Greene’s unambiguous rejection aligns with the musings of some high-profile figures who have floated the hypothetical ticket in public forums. Lara Trump, the former president’s daughter-in-law, recently disclosed that Trump is not ruling out Haley as a potential running mate, despite his substantial lead in most polls, maintaining a 30-point margin.

“Crazier things have happened,” remarked Lara Trump regarding the prospect of a Trump-Haley ticket, adding, “I would never say never with Donald J. Trump.”

Approximately two weeks ago, former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) emphasized that selecting a running mate should be “about addition, not subtraction.” He acknowledged that, from a political standpoint, the anti-Trump vote seems to be gravitating toward Nikki Haley as the candidate most capable of consolidating support.

“In my view,” McCarthy concluded, “right now it appears to be Nikki Haley. However, the critical question remains: if chosen, will they effectively serve as a unifying force? The choice must ultimately be about addition to the campaign’s prospects.”
