Former President Donald Trump has officially ruled out Nikki Haley as his vice presidential candidate for the upcoming November election. 

On his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump stated, “Nikki Haley is not under consideration for the V.P. slot, but I wish her well!” This announcement follows a report by Axios, which suggested Haley could be a potential pick if she could assist Trump in winning the presidency and addressing his legal financial challenges.

Nikki Haley, who previously served as the Governor of South Carolina and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, withdrew her bid against Trump, the leading Republican contender, in March. Despite her concession, Haley has not yet endorsed Trump, who had openly criticized her campaign efforts. Her office did not immediately respond to requests for comments regarding Trump’s recent statement.

The search for Trump’s running mate includes a notable list of Republicans such as North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and Senators Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, and JD Vance, along with Representative Elise Stefanik. Both Burgum and Scott previously challenged Trump for the 2024 Republican nomination before ending their campaigns.

According to Trump’s advisors, he is not rushing to pick a running mate. The formal nomination will occur at the Republican convention in July in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
