Well, Nikki Haley, the feeling is mutual: Donald Trump doesn’t want you to be his vice president either.
In a pre-released clip from an interview with Fox News Channel's Bret Baier, Donald Trump was asked about a report that had him considering the South Carolina governor, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman for vice president, but Trump cut him off.
“No, not Nikki Haley, no Nikki Haley no, she wasn’t under consideration,” Trump said.
Haley, for her part, says she didn’t want to be under consideration anyway. In a statement released Wednesday, she said that while she’d be supporting the Republican nominee, she had no intentions of being on the ticket. Haley had previously endorsed Marco Rubio and campaigned with him.
"To the members of the press who are asking, while I am flattered to be mentioned and proud of what that says about the great things going on in South Carolina, my plate is full and I am not interested in serving as vice president," Haley said in a statement .
But Trump didn’t rule out everyone. After putting the kibosh on Haley, Baier asked him about recent conversations he’s had with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
“We’ve had really nice conversations, not necessarily about that,” Trump said, referring to Rubio being his vice president. “We always had a very good relationship, Bret, Marco and I, and then it got a little bit nasty for a period of time.”
Trump added that despite things getting “a little bit nasty,” he likes Rubio and “it could happen” that he ends up with a position in a Trump administration.
By things getting a little nasty, he's referring to the portion of the campaign when he repeatedly called Rubio “Little Marco” and made fun of how much sweat the Florida senator produced. Rubio responded by calling Trump a “con artist,” made fun of Trump’s use of makeup, joked about his hand size and implied he wet his pants on the debate stage.
