Trump Says Haley Will Be Part Of ‘Team’

Former President Donald Trump said this week that he would include former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) in a potential second Trump White House. The comments came after the former governor endorsed Trump after being originally hesitant to do so.

Haley was the last major candidate to announce their support for Trump. All major Republican presidential candidates except for former Vice President Mike Pence announced their support for the former president.

Trump said that the former governor would “absolutely” be “on our team in some form” after she endorsed him earlier this week.

“Trump has not been perfect on these policies. I have made that clear many, many times. But Biden has been a catastrophe. So, I will be voting for Trump,” she said.

“I appreciate what she said,” Trump said. “The party is together,”

“You know we had a nasty campaign. It was pretty nasty. But she’s a very capable person and I’m sure she’s going to be on our team in some form,” said Trump.

“Absolutely,” he added.

Haley previously served Trump in his first administration. During her time as South Carolina’s governor, Trump nominated Haley to be the United States ambassador to the United Nations. During her tenure at the body, Trump praised her stances regarding international issues.

The endorsement of Haley also came as a series of other Republicans appear to be lining up behind the former president. That includes billionaire donor Steven Schwarzman, who said in 2022 that someone new should run for president.

However, the endorsement came as Schwarzman said that like many Americans, he is concerned “that our economic, immigration and foreign policies are taking the country in the wrong direction.”

“For these reasons, I am planning to vote for change and support Donald Trump for President. In addition, I will be supporting Republican Senate candidates and other Republicans up and down the ticket,” said the donor.

Schwarzman also cited what he described as increasing antisemitism during the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.
