Kevin McCarthy — Trump should pick Nikki Haley for VP

LINK



Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in an interview Wednesday that he would advise former President Trump pick 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley as his running mate.

During the New York Times’s DealBook Summit, Andrew Ross Sorkin asked McCarthy who the “right person” would be for Trump to pick as his vice president among Haley, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), and 2024 GOP presidential candidates Vivek Ramaswamy and Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.).

“If I was a political person, and I was going to advise somebody, you’re going to pick the vice president that’s about addition, not subtraction. So you’re not going to pick somebody that already equates to you,” McCarthy responded.

“Now if I was picking for purely political decisions, what it looks like today is the anti-Trump vote is going to Nikki Haley,” he added.

McCarthy said Trump would need to get the Republican base and independents to support him in order to win back the White House, noting there are some voters who refuse to vote for the former president.

McCarthy said that is why he would select the person who could convince those voters to support the Trump ticket, saying, “if that person is with you, maybe they’d be with you too.”

Asked who that person is, McCarthy said, “Well, right now I think it would be Nikki Haley, in my view. But the question is: Who you select, will they serve? So that’s another question you have to have. And it’s about addition.”

“Do you think she would serve?” Sorkin asked.

“It’s up to Nikki,” McCarthy responded. “But this is a bigger question for Trump: If his campaign is about renew, rebuild and restore, he’ll win. If it’s about revenge, he’ll lose. The only person that’s going to determine that is — not his campaign ad — is him.”

They are already throwing in the towel for Nikki

That means Ron has less than a zero % chance of winning Iowa

Now that we know where the cucks stand we know which direction to head to get away from them.

Kevin underestimates the power of revenge.

I'd vote RFK if Trump picked Haley. It would defeat the purpose. She'd backstab his agenda 20 times a day.

No one on this forum gives AF about Nikki.

I would hate for her to be the VP pick.

But it's also probably the smartest political move unless there's another high profile woman that can give Trump cover and possibly deliver him a contested state.

The smartest pick would be vivek. He needs to perform better with younger voters.

McCarthy is a wet skid mark on the dirty underwear that is the Republican party.

Eh, it might play well with the GOPe but it would/could drive some of Trump's most ardent supporters the other way...

If he makes this pick, it pretty much says he will be doing the same thing he did the last time he was POTUS...

He already tried that with Pence and it didn’t work out.

I thought he had the votes?

Interesting pre-cope.

Nikki Haley is Mike Pence, Part Deux.

I always thought Pence was the GOPe's mole inside the Trump administration.

The first time around, Trump needed to choose a staff using recommendations from the establishment.

This time around, I expect him to choose people who are outside the establishment. The entertainment value of seeing Trump spar with McConnell and the other deep state folks. Trump will push for concepts like, "peace with no new wars" and "secure borders" that are antithetical to the corrupt establishment. I also expect Trump to push for less deficit spending, which will really grind their gears.
