Donald Trump Jr. has recently dismissed the establishment’s endorsement of former Gov. Nikki Haley as former President Donald Trump’s running mate in 2024.
Despite being a GOP presidential candidate, Haley is trailing far behind Donald Trump in the polls, with a significant margin of over 50 points. Nevertheless, she remains a favored candidate among the establishment to serve as Trump’s vice president. However, Trump Jr. holds the belief that Haley’s stance on foreign policy, free speech, government spending, and social policy contradicts the principles of the America First agenda:
1. Advocates for the forced identity verification of individuals on social media platforms
2. Stands in favor of sending American taxpayer funds to Ukraine
3. Think the government shouldn’t protect kids from undergoing life-altering trans surgeries
4. Supports illegal aliens taking jobs from American citizens
“I wouldn’t have her, and I would go to great lengths to make sure that that doesn’t happen,” Trump Jr. told Newsmax, adding:
“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.”
Trump Jr. said the establishment wants Haley as vice president because “all you get is her… trying to destroy Donald Trump from within forever.”
“She is now the preferred candidate,” he added.
Donald Trump recently came out swinging against Haley, calling her “Birdbrain” and a “Globalist RINO.”
“They Endorsed ‘Birdbrain’ because that has always been where her sympathies lie,” Donald Trump posted on Truth Social. “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!!!”
